    Mahalo, do I just wipe the battery? How do I just wipe the battery only? And is reset mean restart? My phone just doesn't hold a charge anymore and I want to try this method. Thanks as always.

    "Wipe" Doesn't this presume that the Hero is rooted?

    To be honest, I just charge my Sprint HTC Hero to 100% and then, while still plugged in, I boot into recovery and wipe my battery stats. Finally, I go back into Android and then unplug my handset and let it drain till it turns off.

    That should calibrate your battery and I followed this guide if you need more reference: Your Battery Might Be Lying to You .
