I just recently acquired a second OEM battery, but when I replace it when it's fully charged into the phone after the first one is depleted (~10-15% left), the battery percentage doesn't increase and stays the same. Is there any software tweak that has to be done in order to get the phone to recognize the new battery?

I'm running MIUI.us build 2.4.6 with Faux's CM7 OC Kernel.

Thanks!

Have you tried killing/charging your new battery, or a battery stats wipe?

When you take the old battery out, try leaving it with no battery for about a minute, then put the new one in. I think it needs time to "forget" the old battery %.

Correct, but not even a minute. 10-20 seconds.

This is the same as deleting battery stats in cwm.

My second battery isn't always fully charged, so I'd prefer not doing so if possible. Will definitely try leaving the battery out for longer, and report back on how it goes.

Thanks all!

Update: Problem solved, thanks guys!
