Default Stimulating a battery pull?

I'm pretty sure my battery needs to be reset as my battery life has dropped dramatically. Just wondering if there is a way to simulate a battery pull on the Note?

Nope stll running stock 4.2.2, with CWM, with no major changes to my OS. I figure it just needs to be recalibrated.

Default Why not changing your battery?

As far as I am concerned I ended up replacing my batteries after +10 months of daily intensive use although the battery status was reported as good. I bought a Samsung original part from eBay and followed a Youtube tutorial. I'm glad to report I did not break anything and obtained significantly enhanced runtimes.

Supposedly holding the power button down until it shuts off is simulating a battery pull. Only other way I know of is to open the device and physically unplug the battery.

Have you tried just running the battery down to nothing, then with the unit off charging to 100%, then keeping it off the charger until dead and then charging to full agian? This may help re-condition the battery. I don't have any evidence to suggest this works but others have reported longer battery life afterwards. If it doesn't work then nothing lost.

Either that or just buy a new battery.
