Erratic battery reporting on 2.3.4 update

I flashed the newest update (2.3.4) this last weekend and although its been great with battery life, I cant seem to get the actual reporting to settle in.

When I take it off the charger its reporting 100%, and throughout
the day it obviously drains the battery. The problem is when I reboot the phone, it starts back up reporting 10-20% higher battery life then when I shut it down. So in reality, I have more battery life left then whats being reported.

I charged to 100% and wiped battery stats using bootstrap. Then drained the battery all the way, and charged all the way back to a full charge.

Can you guys think of anything else that may fix this issue?

I noticed this as well, I thought it was my Mugen Power battery giving false reports but it looks like it isn't the case..

I just don't reboot as often now, can't say I've noticed any problems other than that. My battery life has been excellent!

I normally can go about 14 hours or so off the charger. This past cycle, I went 36 hours, with normal use

Standard battery? Wow

I have never seen a number higher than 14hrs for me. But then again I am CONSTANTLY on my phone.
I want an extended battery but I like my otterbox to much. So I just carry a spare in my wallet.

Must have been a fluke. Today isn't the same story.

Seems to be a bug in the SBC file. Hopefully we have a fix after the soak test. Or maybe nitro will take a stab at it.

This is a very annoying bug. I went back to 2.3.3 until it's fixed.
