More Accurate Battery Readings
Hey Guys! I've been using this Valet device from Belkin called the Belkin Conserve Valet F7C008q Energy-Saving USB Charging Station. It essentially cuts off power to the device once it detects it is fully charged. I've noticed that plugging in my device overnight into it helps my battery "last longer". I say "last longer" because I'm not sure what its doing but all I know is that I don't get that fake 100% reading when I wake up. It's already down to 97 or 95 and stays in the 90s for a longer period of time. It's a really good investment all around since it cuts off power to the valet once all devices are charged saving you on your electric bill too! I won't post external links but any Google or Amazon search will find it.
Anyone else using this device?
I am in no way affiliated with Belkin or any of their companies. I do not hold stock or anything so my recommendation is purely from personal experience. I will not profit from this post in any way, except hearing great stories from you guys.

There is a reason that your phone drops to 95% or 93% or whatever right after you take it off the charger overnight
Read this post to find out why. It's one of the best battery related posts/tutorials I've ever read and I consider it a MUST READ for HTC devices:
