    I've found that if you unplug your phone almost immediately after the LED turns green, it's almost as good as bump charging. I saw someone's theory that once the INC reaches 100%, it switches to battery and uses the battery down to about 95% and remains there. That's why if you leave your phone on the charger overnight and unplug in the morning, it'll drop down very quickly to 95%, but then level out.

    So if you want that extra 5%, unplug it right away, or replug it for a bit until it gets up to 100% again, then unplug.

    That's correct, no need for bump charging if u take it off right away, no mater what battery you have, if left plugged in after fully charging it will drain, so yes bump charging would be useful if u charge overnight.

    Really? I have the 3500mah battery and it will bump charge for like 2 hours, even when I unplug it as soon as the light turns green (ie, literally 3 seconds after it turns green). I unplug it, turn it off, plug it back in, and it'll charge for at least another 1.5 hours, sometimes as much as 3.

    I've seen this new battery take 4 hours to charge and 2 to bump. That was after 8 hours of the light being green
