Actually, resetting battery stats with that app does nothing. Do a search. The stats are reset at full charge every time.

And actually if you have a bad app or something from tibu that your phone does not like, a factory reset will solve it.

Not bad, your battery life is definitely improving. Is your improvement due solely to juice defender? I'd be interested in trying it just to see what happens.

I've uploaded the screen grab of my 1d6hr charge with 4hr20min screen time. The charge actually jumps up a little which I assume is part of the battery still calibrating since it was never plugged in.
