Guys i have found a way to fix battery indicator to show the battery level as it should be...
1) First of all charge your phone
2) After that go to registry editor on your phone and go to
Code:
Local machine/system/state/batteryux/MainIntervalIndex
and change the value from 6 (or any value it shows there) to 20...now press OK! You wil see that the battery level on top has been changed!
Now again edit it and go from 20 to 80 and press OK
...
RESTART YOUR PHONE AND THEN CHARGE IT!
Now you will see that the battery level has changed and shows the battery level like it should be...
Until now it seems like its working... Will leave it unti later to see if the battery will continue to show the correct level...
Try it and tell me your thoughts!
You can find the registry editor attached.


DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK..MESSING WITH REGISTRY IS DANGEROUS! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED TO YOUR PHONE!

My mistake mate! Yeap this is the correct path! Change it from 6 (or any value that shows there) to 20 and from 20 to 80 and it should work like it supposed to be!

Something that i noticed is that the value is Dynamic (means that the value changes by it's self) You just make the trick and it should work!

It's been 1 hour now and it seems that the battery indicator shows the correct level! So i must say that this tweak works!

Too give you an idea of what this tweak is about! Some guys here says that the Radio plays a Big Role in battery life... Imo this have nothing to do with the battery drainage of your phone... Your Battery indicator shows false levels of the battery! E.x you charge your phone for 1 hour and battery is about 60% when you unplug it! WP7 doesn't know the correct battery level because of a false value in registry!
This "BETA" tweak will fix this problem..

Ok here is the thing:
1)charge your phone until the green light shows up
2)unplug it from A/C and open registry editor
3)go to the reg path
4)edit the value from 6 to 20...press ok..Now you will see the battery indicator level has been changed! Again go and edit the value and from 20 go to 80..press ok! Restart and enjoy!

To see that this is working.. go and edit the value and put number 4 or 2! The indicator will show you that you have 40%-50%..
So if you edit it again and follow the instructions you will see that the battery level will now show 80%-90% which is correct because you charged your phone before!

I can't see any " virtual battery drainage" anymore because the indicator now shows the correct batt level!

Tell me your results!
