Default Doesn't charge fully stops at 96% ...

This morning went into battery saver to see the estimate of battery life when I unplug and noticed that the phone stopped charging at 96%. It was charging the whole night. Unplugged. Waited. Plugged it in again but it sat there at 96% and not charging any further.

I noticed the same after updating to latest firmware yesterday (11500). Though I still get more charge than before the update. But the last 4% wont charge for some reason although the battery indicator shows as full when the phone says its fully charged.

Probably not an issue, Samsung often do it on purpose.

I don't believe it's an issue either. At least I do not worry about it. It's just a number that doesn't impact the phones functionality.

I´m spanish, just in case you want to answer to me in castellano . I also had the same issue. When i charged it the second time, it reached 100 %, but full charge capacity lowered to 1380 mAh.
In that ocassion the battery was depleted in 11 hours with a high discharging rate. Strange thing is that today when I charged it for the third time discharge rate is low again, something around 120 mAh and the battery´s life expectancy is back again to normal (27 hours or so).
Anyway, the full capacity is still around 1380 mAh. I say around because the number changes by the day.

Saludos.

Yes, running 11500 and only noticed it today. The other day when I actually checked battery saver in the morning it was at 100% and 1 day 3 hours remaining with 1517 mAh full capacity ... today, as I mentioned, 96% and just 23 hours remaining at 1470 mAh full capacity. It appears that there is still something screwy with the battery. The phone does last longer than before however.

Had similar issues with HTC Desire back in the days when it wouldn't charge to 100% required full discharge or battery recalibration.

Now mine charges up to 100%. It was just the first charge after update that went up to 96% only.

The maximum charge capacity fluctates from time to time. Nothing to worry about it just does that I assume.

I have the same issue! I left the phone charging the whole night, the morging after the battery charge indicator was 100%, but as soon as i un-plug the usb charging cable it fall back to 97%!

I suggest you to use the nokia diagnostic app to see the charging percentage of the battery, in my case is never up 97%. I think It's a WP7 bug...
