Anyone else use the HD dock and notice their Atrix isn't charging to 100%? I use the dock daily and I have to unplug the phone at 90% and replug it back in just to get it to hit 100%..wth?

I'll leave it on overnight and when i wake up, it's 90%.. ONLY the HD dock does this.. if I use a usb plug it charges to 100%.

Just a shot in the dark here, but i think the phone starts to discharge once it hits 100% (to prevent you from ruining the battery I think) and then charges back to 100% (rinse, repeat). This together with the fact the atrix only shows 10% increments, is it possible you are just taking the phone off charge during one of this discharge cycles?

Have you tried dischaging the phone completely until it shuts off and then charging it at least two to three times? It might just need calibration.

I haven't..

Jess. when it shows 100% charge, it just says (Charged) and I've never seen it drop to 90% and then back.. I've never seen it cycle between that visibly.

it's almost as if the last 10% wont charge on the dock.. I am not sure if it's ruining the battery or not..

Try getting circle battery widget...it will give you your battery charge in 1% increments and may show you a little better what's going on

Just found something interesting.. my battery might not be calibrated correctly. I was at 60% last night when I decided to pull the battery out. When it came back up, it showed 80%.

lovely..
