The battery logging apps are reporting the same levels as the phone's native apps.

The problem is not that it's draining too fast, but that it's getting the levels wrong. I'm actually trying to drain it as fast as I can to test it out.

I'm happy with the time I'm getting out of the standard battery and this new one, but I'm worried that I'll end up with it going flat unexpectedly, or appear to be about to do so when it isn't, because the phone is confused.

FWIW, I've had the battery apps installed for a long time, and they don't appear to change the battery consumption significantly.
