Well, I finally got around to running the battery down with 1.8.7 and boy is the meter off. As mentioned previously, I saw the meter slowly go to ~80% then move faster to ~35% then rocket down to 5%. Today, I got home just as the phone made it's plunge to 5%. I put on youtube and continously streamed video via ev/1x switching I get in my basement (burns through the battery) with the screen on for a full 1 hour before the phone finally shut down. Obviously 5% is more like 35-40%. The problem that may have me looking for a new rom is that unless this run out-recharge cycle trains the meter, I have to use the last 40% of battery life with the greatly reduced 5% backlight that Android forces.
