ummm.. WHAT, lol.

Closest thing i've had to that is, phone says 85%. boot into recovery or shutdown phone, restart and it says like 90%

are you good at photoshop?

Yea, note the significant spike at 70%, that was from plugging it in to charge. So you can see the uptick overnight was more gradual

I figured it out.


Or maybe there was some electromagnetic field given off by something that charged your battery? (which I HIGHLY doubt)

Battery meter =| battery charge

The meter reading is only an approximation and can get confused at times. This is why you can see the apparent charge drop 20% or more after a reboot. I can't say as I've ever seen it increase like that but I'm sure it's possible. Something was probably going on in the background that screwed it up.

I agree with iElvis. Its just a metering correction. The voltage didn't actually increase. Just the approximation of voltage to percent battery, which is just a relative number anyway, not a real "measurement".
