Default Battery widgets

I have had my Rezound for four days now. No problems so far (knock on wood), but i noticed something. When the phone is on, and plugged in either by USB or regular charger, it will not register 100% and the LED will not turn green. When it is turned off, it turns green and i get 100% when i turn it on. Weird bug? Anyone else have this? Any way to correct it?

Not really an issue, just thought it odd.

This was pointed out to me by an informed person here (most people here are awesome, other than me...but I'm learning!)

I have read that before. Mine doesn't ever get to 100% while charging with the phone on.

Mine can really be stubborn as well. Usually, mine shows 99% in the morning, and I guess if that whole article is correct, my battery widget is very accurate. I'm considering getting rid of that app so I don't obsess over it, since I'm so dang CDO (OCD in alphabetical order) :P

Mine takes a while to get to 100%, but it always gets there. Usually 30-40 minutes after it gets to 99%, but it always goes to 100.

I use "battery life" widget.

Many devices have a regulator that goes into trickle charge as the device gets close to 100%. This is what you may be experiencing.

Mine goes from no charge to full charge in about 3 1/2 hours. The led does go to green. I get about to 90% charge in about 2 hours.

Now if I only slightly discharge it then it can take a while to go back to green but it does get there. Individual batteries, like people, can have their own quirks.
