Strange Charging Behavior
Some strange things I've noticed with my battery:
1. The battery level will say 100%, but it will still say "charging"
2. If I don't take it off the charger when it reaches 100%, it will start to discharge again, even though it's still on the charger.
Anyone else have these issues or do I have a bad battery?

Battery is fine. It will say full when its truly at 100% so it will lie to you. Also power is cut off as to not damage the battery from over charging it will drop to a certain voltages then resume. If you Google charging lithium ion batteries it will give more information than you could ever want or need on the subject.

Re: Strange Charging Behavior
the theory is that trickle charging lessen the number of charge cycles LIs can have. So rather than continually pumping juice into a full battery and risking damaging it, it'll discharge a few percent and then start charging again.
At least that's what Google told me a while ago.
