    Default time to buy another battery? original one already a year old...

    I bought my VZW Galaxy Nexus on launch day last year.(received it two days after that)

    It has been on the original battery ever since. I charge it every night, so that's already
    365 cycles.(more or less)

    Is it time to buy a new battery? I don't actually notice that much of a difference in
    standby/talk time... however, the phone now rarely charges it to 100%. Usually
    it hangs at 96% to 98%, no matter how many hours it's plugged into the charger.

    Thanks!

    At 98% unplug it and replug it in and see if it reaches 100% again.

    I'd say if you don't notice the battery dying faster I wouldn't worry. I've had mine the same length of time and have the same thing happening. Hovers around 98-99% but it lasts me the same amount time.

    A lot of us have secondary and even tertiary batteries

    Get a 3800ma battery like the Hyperion or Trexcell (I have both). They cost around $20 on Amazon.
