I read this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...postcount=3546

It says that you should get 100%, then turn it off and wait until it is green. After this, wipe the battery stats or use the adb command. Then, let the battery die after normal use, and after recharge..

My question is, can anyone recommend some battery killing apps that will do the job?

Thanks in advance!

That public embarrassment was not necessary. *sarcasm*
Yeah, but isn't using an application considered normal?

I could be wrong but I thought that the way Lithium batteries worked makes this kind of calibration useless??

This dueling argument will go on for centuries. I wish a battery manufacturer would step up and release some white pages to say one way or another.

I don't think it is so much calibrating the battery, but calibrating the phone to the high and low points of the battery. Older battery types required conditioning, not calibrating.

Bingo! Having three batteries (2 after-market TouchPro 2 and the OEM), I even have a performance difference between the two types. I've since set the OEM battery on a shelf and only use the TP2 batteries, as they are identical. I haven't had a battery issue since calibrating using one of them.
