    Default what's the max voltage you've ever gotten...

    on the extended and the stock battery? I just got my first extended battery today and it's having a bit of trouble getting the voltage up above 4 volts. I left it in the battery charging dock for an hour past when I saw the indicator lamp turn green. put it in the phone and immediately got a "90%" indication of battery level. charging it now inside the phone and got it to read 100% in a short time, but terminal voltage isn't as high as the stock batteries (I have 2 of them).

    Is anyone getting over 4.125 volts?

    Battery Indicator Pro shows 4.344v in the logs as the highest. 100% charge looks to be always about 4.3 volts.

    Sorry....standard battery.

    my extended has been stuck on 4.065 for over a 1/2 hour, after I got the 100% indication on the phone (it went from 90% to 100% way quicker than I thought, but I'm concerned about the max voltage being a bit low).

    I'm using a USB charger that's a bit more than 1 amp. the stock charger is around .850

    it's a widget, called Battery Indicator. it shows the battery level in the notification area.

    I found out this morning that the battery dock isn't fully charging any of my batteries (I've had 4 of them, including one replacement std battery). I'm taking it back to verizon today to exchange it. if the next battery dock does no better, I'll get a refund.

    Yesterday was the first time I used the extended battery--it was only charged to 90% via the battery dock. I had to finish charging it in the phone. Last night I put the extended battery (depleted) into the battery dock at 8PM. this morning at 6AM the green light was on, I put it back in the phone...shows just 90% charge and a voltage of 4.04 volts.
