    Do you have to be rooted to recalibrate the battery?

    No, it is just a way of doing some quick charging of the battery

    Ok. Awesome. I cant seem to find directions on how to do this. Even after searching. Can you shed some light on this?

    Its alright. Here is the description right from inside that thread i said to go to.

    1. With the phone in the on position.

    Fully charge the battery with the phone on...(until the led turns green)

    Once the led turns green, unplug the charger until the led goes off.

    After the led goes off, plug the charger back in. When the led turns green, power off the phone. Now... with the phone fully powered off...

    1.1 Unplug the charger.

    2. Wait until led goes off.

    3. Plug charger back in until led turns green. When it turns green, turn on the phone unplug the charger again and go to step 1.

    4. Repeat steps 1 and 3, 10 times This may take anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 mins. per cycle. Typically only about 1 minute though.

    No problem. Now, it is only about 400mAh better then the stock battery. I myself notice about a 20-30% increase from day to day usage on my phone. Some days are shorter, but i use my phone alot because it is my work phone. But it is def an increase in battery life.

    Good luck getting it. I recently ordered it from Amazon and they sent a Thunderbolt battery by mistake. Twice!

    I got my 1600mah battery yesterday and this seems to work. It didn't stay at 1% for a long time at all. I used my phone till it completely dies then fully charged it. I'm going to do this couple of times to see how this battery handles.

    Well so far so good. I've noticed a slight increase, however I'm only on my second charge.

    I am still going strong with my battery. And i also just found something that might be of interest as well. I will also post a seperate thread for this too.

    Okay I noticed with my produce and my non rooted phone it only charges uptown 90% then it days it complete. So 10% of the battery doesn't get charged?

    I would try this calibration tech. I grabed this from the EVO 3D forums and it seemed to work pretty well over there.

    My Calibrating Technique
    1. Charge until 100%
    2. Power off (while still on the charger) and wait until the led turns green (may take a while)
    3. Unplug and let sit for 5 min (while still powered off)
    4. Plug back in again until led turns green again (while still powered off)
    5. Power back on
    **If you have 100% after powering back on then you should be good to go... If not repeat these steps again.**

    Well once the battery gets to 90% it jumps straight to 100%. So ill give it a try and well see what happens.

    Okay so I tried that. My phone will reach a 90% charge then jump right to 100%. Is there any good way to calibrate a non rooted phone?

    I've noticed this as well. May be hardware. Download Current Widget from the market. It'll give you a true representation of when the phone has completely charged (while plugged in, it'll show 0 ma). As for calibration techniques, they are around. They involve draining the battery until it has turned off and charging it, uninterrupted, until full. Have a look around.
