    I've noticed the same thing. It seems that the wall charger doesn't like to maintain the phone at 100% even if it's just sitting idle. It'll continuously get it up to 100%, stops charging and then picks back up charging again an repeats the process.

    Yeah to prevent overcharging when it hits 100% it backs off. I think it will drop to 95% before re-initiating charging if plugged in

    That is correct, its to prevent it from effing up your battery, if you have the time, you can probably see it get to 100%, but who really has the time or patience to sit and watch their phone charge.

    *waves hand* Okay, not exactly - I just plug it in at work so I see it. What I find annoying is that it'll vibrate when it hits 100% - even in silent mode. Well, pretty sure it was silent mode.. I'm a bit more insane than usual today. /it'sFriday

    It's still rather annoying though. Never had the issue with the Droid I had and it seems like they could be more efficient in maintaining the charge than letting it drop 5% or so.
