A better way would be to let it drain to as low as it can.

Making it aware of it again.
Thanks for that SUroot. You are right, it's not good to do it often - actually I 've never done it before. I just did it once to "reset its memory" and now it's working perfectly - my battery draining problem is completely resolved after the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update.
