    Time since unplugged measures the time the phone gas been unplugged from an electrical outlet. In order to reset that plug it in for an hour and like magic it is reset :)

    Just wondering are you using the HTC charger that came with the phone or are you using a third party charger.

    Ok I guess I am not understanding. So when you unplug the phone and then go to Menu then Settings then About Phone then Battery and then Battery Use it does not reset the time on Battery. Or are you talking about while it is plugged in?

    Ok so let's say you have your phone on battery for like 14 hours and then you plug it in to charge until it is full. Then you unplug it and then immediately check to see how long it has been running on battery? Why would you do that? Or you are checking it like an hour later and it still has the 14 plus hours listed? Also why are you checking the time on battery while it is plugged in? I have never done that before but I am charging right now and it has the time I had it on battery for listed and it just stays at that number. Now when I unplug and keep looking at it it does continue the original count. rather than resetting it. My guess is it has to be plugged in for awhile in order for it to reset or fully charged in order for it to reset. Having said all that it is possibly designed that way as they changed the name from Time since Unplugged to Time on Battery. Again not sure why it matters.

    Ok after some trial and error I have discovered that MY device does not reset the time on Battery every time it is plugged in. It does however reset it every time I plug it in and charge it to 100%. So if I am getting low on battery in my car and plug it in to charge up a little, it pauses the time on battery while charging. If I do not charge it to 100% and unplug it the time on Battery then continues the count (If I plug in at 5hr 5m 43s on Battery and unplug it an hour later it starts counting at 5hrs 5m 44s) Now if I do charge it to 100% then it resets to count from 0. I have to believe it is designed this way and I am sure if you look yours is doing the same exact thing. If it is not, what is your current time on battery?

    They did change the way this works in the update. It will not reset until it's charged to 94% or so. If you click on the graph, it will expand and will even show when it was charging (among other things). It also shows total time on battery on top, and total time (including charging) on the bottom.

    Never noticed that but then again, I don't charge my batteries while in the phone. I charge them externally.

    The only time that gets reset is when I turn the phone off and turn it back on.
