    My battery has been at 50% for 2 hours now. Anyone else getting this? I've been using it while charging it for awhile now.

    Mine finally ran down until it powered itself off. Apparently it only goes in increments of 10 until it hits 15, then 10, then 5...off. I'm charging it now. I just assumed it would give you a more accurate percentage.

    Maybe "increments of 10 " is a problem, guys who are having problems couldn't tell if it really was 50, or 53 or even 59. (the phone displayed 50)

    I charged successfully to 100%, however I am also seeing only 10% increments. I am almost back to 0 :D

    Sorry to hear you guys are having problems.

    This would be a good thing if it happened while unplugged.

    It took a while for me to get to 100% but I had to set it down and use the wall charger ;-)

    Android handsets typically discharge at 10% increments unless you have a modded ROM where it has been changed. then when you get lower it changes.

    Designgears on XDA supposedly has "fixed" his. I believe we are still waiting on a response on how this is done.

    RussellMania Did you refer to how to make it show battery in 1% increments or Not charging past some point ?

    Got mine to charge to 100% using the wall outlet. USB is either very slow or not charging at all for me.

    I've also charged mine twice to 100% both times w/ wall charger. USB is REALLY slow. It's been plugged into my laptop usb port for about an hour and only moved from 10% to 20%. I should add that I've been adding a ton of music to the Atrix during that last hour so maybe that has something to do with the slow charge rate...just a thought and yet another thing to test tomorrow.
