Default 100% Charge Complete?

Does the Nexus stop charging immediately when the battery level hits 100% or does it complete the charge after it reads 100% as in it is on the the last increment but needs to finish that increment?

Thanks!

This is what I have read on the forums. The GNex will stop charging at 100% and let the phone start discharging until it reaches 97-98%, at which point it will recharge again to 100% and repeat. This is why you will see so many "My Galaxy only charges to 98%" comments. I understand that this is actually a good thing for the long term life of the battery.

I hope this helps.

^interesting, I try to unplug my spare battery charger when I see the green light come on. Of course it may be a couple hours after it actually come on though.
