Phone stop charging after 100%?
Wondering if this was how it is supposed to act or only happened after the update.
Whenever my phone hits 100% it stops charging now. The problem is if i leave it charging overnight. It hits 100% somewhere halfway through. With the battery drain issues sometimes I wake up with it at 70% after leaving it charging from the dock or the plug in adapter.
Is this normal?

Might be a problem with your phone.
I usually turn mine off when I go to bed, and I charge overnight. It only takes a few hours to charge, so when I wake up in the morning it's been full for a few hours. The blue LED is lit, and my "Gauge Battery Widget" reports that the battery is 97% full. I've never been able to get it to charge past 97%.

I always unplug my phone and plug it back in when I wake up to make sure it's really full. Usually I turn mine off to let it charge all the way. I don't need it to be on in the middle of the night anyway.
My Epic arrives tomorrow. This might irritate me enough to return it.

My Epic does NOT behave that way. After it says the battery is full, my battery status stays in the 95 - 98% range until I unplug it. In fact, if I keep the phone plugged in and use if for a minute or two, sometimes the battery indicates 100%.

My samsung mesmerize do started doing this a few days ago. I've been messing with different ways of charging and keeping the battery topped up through the day, and I'm wondering if I damaged it somehow.
Does anyone know if the usb plug data leads are used by the charger? (I had been using a battery pack with only the GND and 5v leads connected-at times the phone would heat up.)
