Is it possible to reset the phone batt_cycle entry?
Reason: after changing the battery I realized that the new one (original Samsung as far as I can tell with man. Date 11/2017) does not perform as expected. The observation is that the battery is not charged to the correct final charging voltage of 4.35V but instead charging is stopped at 4.2875V indicating 100%
This did confuse me - after all that's throwing away with some juice that could still have gone into the battery.
Further investigation shows that the changing of the battery did not reset the batt_cycle to 0 but instead it is counting onwards! Comparing the readings to those of a S7 still with it's original battery but with many cycles shows that the old battery also stops charging at 4.2875V.
I'm suspecting that the voltage is lowered on higher battery cycle to prevent damage coming from overly demanding charging an old battery. But now with the battery changed to a new one a lot of potential is going down the drain....
That's why I'm asking. How can the counter be reset?
The topic is discussed in length and with further info (in German) here (especially up from post 41 onwards - you will also find a tool there that reads out several corresponding values of the battery):
But we still don't havea solution yet and that's why I am asking the more tech inclined specialists here. I hope you can help us. Thanks in advance.
