Ah! That's right, my bad.

I see there being a deficit of 1Ah, meaning on full brightness, playing a game, it will last 9 hours. Even when plugged in
Is that measured with a meter or using an app?

But quickly Googling the part says it can do 2.5A. Not sure why Google/Samsung has limited it to 2A, there may be a good reason. If not, getting another 25% should be doable on a rooted device. Don't plan to try it myself.
Is that a typo, 2000000? At max of 2A would be 2000ma.

That's because it's at 91% charged, so has slowed down. You need to measure at a much lower charge level.

Also, the 2000000 is not a typo, it was copied and pasted. The unit is just microamps instead of milliamps.

That's true, the charge changes from constant current to constant voltage at 4.2V. Ah, microamps!

Just use the Battery Monitor Widget from 3C, you can set the interval down to one minute. I guess that I=91 is current but how do you tell if that is charge or discharge? Is that 91A, 9.1A or 0.91A? The BMW will do that for you.
C is current in milliamps. This is the current at the battery so it includes power draw from the rest of the tablet.(that's why its not the 2A most would expect)

Plug in the microusb and check the current, then plug in the pogo cable and check the current. Then subtract the two.

Similiar to the moderm gas vehicle, power is drawn from the battery, it's replaced by the charger which is supplied by the 2A power supply or AC wall unit.

I don't have my POGO charger yet but noone has compared the USB and POGO charging rate at below a battery voltage of 4.2V to show the real maximum difference. It's been mentioned that the charging circuit is maxed at 2.0A, so anyone that's getting a larger PS isn't going to gain anything.

In Ohm's Law, I=current, V=volts and R=resistance.

Just need someone to install battery monitor widget.

Then with battery somewhere below 50% charge with usb for at least half an hour with screen off then swop to pogo for half an hour.

It's already been done. USB is around 1.6A, POGO is around 1.9A

Anyone care to test this at all?

Tested, doesn't drain streaming 1080p mkv on full brightness. In fact I netted 2% in like 20 minutes. Posted this last night.

Like the fact that Verizon was fined $1.25 million for blocking tethering apps? That was due in part to my FCC Complaint. Join my website and participate in further discussions of legal topics concerning mobile technology and more!

Where? Have a link?

I've speculated this but I haven't seen anyone actually test it.
