It's a common complaint in reviews of the Venture. I think it's flaky in the way it measures state of charge. I think many may also have defective batteries.

When you say "fully charged" do you mean it's been plugged in all night, or do you mean you plugged it in until it said 100% (and didn't leave it plugged in after that)?

Sounds like a defective battery to me, and if you read reviews a lot of people have similar symptoms. Luckily that hasn't happened to me (yet?).
