    1) Is it possible to use another battery from another htc device? Any other device have a stronger battery you can use?

    2) when the green light is on, it means it is fully charged right?
    however when i go to the desktop app it shows you the percentage of charge, it is only ever in the 90's% when the green light comes on. something wrong with my battery? it still carries on charging but the green light comes on so early,

    The desire once reaching 100% drops 10% charge to prevent over charging. This can sometimes result in early green

    danfrance, - what exactly do you mean by that? because once it reaches 100, it will drop to 90? but then it carries on charging on mine

    basically i notice that the green light comes on in the 90's however if you watch it, it carries on charging to 100.

    It charges to 100 but stops charging to prevent battery harm.

    In other words, it stops charging once it reaches 100 and therefore drops slightly.

    i see what you are saying but once it drops after hitting 100 it carries on charging, the % starts to slowly increase again until it hits 100 then it stops

    so technically what do i look out for? green light or the 100%?

    Look to using your phone and don't worry about %! ;)

    Because it drops to 90 it then charges to 100. Staysat 100 for a couple if hours then repeats.

    Some custom roms like the one that I use, go green from 90

    So, in other words, it drops to 90 it then charges to 100? :D

    oh my god, you guys are totally confusing me!!! hahah

    all i want to know is when to pull the plug? when it goes green or when it goes 100%?
    Which one is fully charged?

    Try this (it's what I do), turn your phone off and plug it in over night. Turn it on in the morning and see how it reacts; mine is always at 100% after turning it off and charging it at night.
