I decided to make this post as an attempt to be informative without getting lost in the shuffle of existing threads. However, if any mod feels the need to move, merge, delete, nuke this thread from orbit, I'll respectfully understand. I purchased my Droid Incredible on August 5th. I used it for 2 weeks before redeploying to Iraq. I experienced the same bump charge issues that many others have reported, and after 2-3 days of testing, bought the Seidio Multi-Function battery charger and a 2nd battery, so I'd never have to experience it again. However, I did test it a few days before leaving, and had my wife run a few more tests for me and relay that information this past week. Here's my conclusions (agree or disagree). This is further supported by a recent charging change that HTC made with the 2.2 update. Analysis: It seems that when plugged in, the Incredible, unlike most phones, continues to run off the battery rather than the external power source. A normal phone does two things once connected to an external power source. First, it begins charging the battery. Secondly, it runs off that source while the battery charges. When the battery is reported fully charged, the battery is essentially turned off, and the phone continues to run off the external source. Once unplugged, the phone switches to a full battery. By comparison, the Incredible seems to be doing it differently. The phone continues to run off the battery while charging. When fully charged, the phone reports itself fully charged, turns off charging, and runs off the battery. Due to the way the Android battery meter works (doesn't begin counting usage until unplugged), it will continue to report a full battery even if left plugged in indefinitely. When unplugged, at the next polling, the battery will report the actual remaining juice. In 2.2, HTC slowed the charging due to the battery getting hot while charging. Well...no shit! It's both charging and running off the unit, so of course it will get hot! How about we patch it to run off external power like a normal phone? There's one more thing to do to confirm my theory, but as I stated, I don't have the phone with me. If this bump charge doesn't exist with custom ROMs that are NOT based on the official HTC release (like Cyanogen), but does exist in custom roms based off the official release (Skyraider), then that will all but confirm that it's an HTC driver issue. I won't be able to confirm this until at least January, so wouldn't mind someone else here reporting in. I've reported the issue to HTC, but I've gotten the same responses as everyone else; -We've never heard of this issue -You have to plug it in until the light turns green -All batteries stop charging when full -etc. Solutions: -"Bump Charge" by unplugging the phone, and plugging it back in until the light turns green again. This will force it to re-recharge. Once again, if you let it turn green and remain on the charger for an extended period of time, you may want to re-bump it if time allows. -Charge it while powered off (for those who don't need their phone when sleeping, or don't use it as an alarm). This prevents the battery from draining excessively when full. -Buy an external charger, like Seidio's multi-function battery charger (and a 2nd battery). The battery charger will do a complete charge. I just swap batteries as needed, and never have to bump anymore.
