Crazy Battery Story, nice outcome
Ok since I've had my Thrill, the battery sucked...HARD. Upgraded to every GB and kernel..still sucked. Went over to the Rogers kernel the day it was released. Still have is stock, just rooted.
Fast forward a few months to Monday afternoon, while on my way to a meeting and using the GPS, I noticed that my phone was near dead. Noticed that it was indeed plugged to the car charger, but not charging. tired the usb to my laptop and nothing. Decided to check the port, I smelled it and BAM!!, the smell of burnt electronics.
At this point I'm sure that the phone is history after the charge goes. After a few tries I wiggle and wiggle and was able to some how find a sweet spot at an angle to get it charging. After I got to my meeting, I left it charging at that magical angle til I got back.
Got back unplugged it, fully charged.
OK HERES THE CRAZY PART. Figured I would have to buy a new phone, so I left it in my pants pocket and just went to bed around 11pm. Got the next day, never looked at it figuring it was dead by now as usally until around 6pm Tuesday.
Amazingly the battery was not dead, but the level was still 80%!!! ...Like WTF.
On top of that, the charging works perfect now, and the damn thing is still running off a charge from Monday and its Wednesday morning. Battery level at is 60%. Wifi anf GPS on the entire time, and I''ve been using it all day.
A BLESSING FROM THE LITHIUM GODS!!!
