Default charging/battery bug

I came from the incredible which had a battery bug, where if you charged it while it was on you wouldn't get a full charge. Does the droid x have this problem. I seem to get better life if i charge it up off and over night then when i charge it at work with it on.

The Droid X does seem to accept more of a charge when off then when on...

I think that you may find this occurrence with various electronic devices. I can't say for sure one way or the other if my LG Voyager has ever had this happen, or my iPod Touch 32GB 2G, or my LG Ally that I had for about a week, etc. I can say that the thought of this having happened crossed my mind a few times every now and again. I may have thought I noticed something odd about my recent battery charge for something, but I don't think anything ever seemed concrete enough and I just dismissed it as one of those, "ghost in the shell," type of situations.

I will post here commenting on what I experience once I receive my own Droid X, however.
Droid X - OTA 2.2 (2.3.15) - rooted via D2 method - manually deodexed

I would say that I seem to notice slightly better battery life when the phone is charged overnight in the OFF position rather than the ON position. It could just be a coincidence, though. It's nothing like the Dinc, though. I had to power that off once fully charged to get a "full" charge. It took another 45 minutes or so to finish charging and it made a 1-2 hour difference at the end of the day.
