7130e - battery only charging to 95%
 
All - my 7130e is now only charging to 95% (verified under Options, Status), even after charging overnight. Anyone else experiencing this?

What happens if you fully turn the unit off and charge it and turn off your auto on/off feature.

I've had this happen...sometimes mine would only charge to 75-80% even after charging all night. A reboot (battery removal) would change the display to say 95%. Then after a little more charging it would go to 100%. I finally got a new battery and all seems to be working fine now. I use a 7100t with the extended battery and replaced it with another extended battery.

I don't use the auto on/off. And I've charged it both ways - fully shut off and while it's still on. Funny thing is, I got it up to 100% today, but within a few minutes, it was back down to 95%.

I don't know what's going on here.

Do you have any applications running in the background, applications that are constantly accessing data can eat your battery life, such as BBToday, BBWeather ( i set mine to update very very infrequently, if i need it immediately then i ask it to update on the spot). Having the bluetooth radio on all the time also eat up battery life. If you are on a fringe area with your phone and you are switching from EVDO to 1X to 1x also eat up your battery.

This is gonna sound weird, but no, I do not run any apps, nor do I use e-mail or Internet (I have the National Block from Verizon activated). I bought this phone purely as a phone/pda...so my phone does not communicate with any external sites, including Verizon. So obviously that does not eat up battery power.

I leave BT on all the time.

But I don't think any of that has to do with whether or not the phone charges to 100%, or 95% in my case.
