So followed directions on how to delete the battery.bin file to allow the metering to reboot so that the charge prediction is more accurate.

Unplugged my phone at about 6:30 AM this morning and did my day. I am a heavy user. Did about 2.5 hours of talk with Bluetooth and probably about 3 hours of continuous use. Games, text, web, messing around. Phone went full dead at about 2:00.

This is the interesting part.
Immediately started charging the phone again at 2:00. From 3-4 I started using the DI again continuously. by 4:00, I notice that the phone is fully charged...

2 hours to a full charge? I've never seen that before and I've had my phone for 2 months. On top of that, I tend to find that charging while actually using the phone slows down the recharge significantly since it "burns while it earns".

Wonder if the deletion of the battery profile did anything for it and is this for the good or for the bad.

Will test and watch and see.
