Default New battery calibration

I’ve just purchased non-OEM batteries for my phone. Instead of using the extended battery as I have for the past year I plan on using standard batteries and swapping out on an as needed basis throughout the day. My new batteries give me a “low battery” warning and then very quickly die. I see conversations of battery “calibration” as a means to get more juice … I’m not interested in extended my new standard batteries I just want my gauge to read properly, and “calibration” seems like the right term.

Is there anything to properly “calibrate” new batteries to the phone battery gauge?

Thanks!

(BTW, these are the new batteries )

You must be rooted to "calibrate" the battery, all you will really do is remove the current calibration file and let the system build a new one... although if you just keep going, over time this situation should rectify itself automatically. There is a lot of debate whether or not removing the file and letting it rebuild itself will actually do anything though.

I'm not root ... and have no plans to be ... so I'll just play the wait and see game then. I'll rotate through all three batteries and let them expend all the way out a couple times each ... maybe that will help.

Otherwise, I just have to 'know' that 10% = done!

For $15 for three batteries + charger, that'll be quite alright.

I am doing the same thing, I have three Laza batteries and three HTC batteries but never had an extended battery... The battery guage is usually about right, but I only trust GSAM Battery Monitor.
