Question TP not fully charging..

I'm running Isriam's Cricket ROM on my TP and for some strange reason whenever I plug my phone in to charge it, within 15 min. or maybe less it shows as 100%, I un plug and battery drains really fast (obviously), but my problem is that phone stops charging when it hits the 100% so I have to constantly be checking on it.. Which is really a hassle, any ideas of any fixes? or any app I can use? I was looking for NUEBattery but apparentally the website was down yesterday.. well any help is appreciated! thanks.

Re: TP not fully charging..

the sure-fire way to know it's full is when the white light around the d-pad is solid. if it's solid after 15 minutes, you've got a defective phone or battery.

Re: TP not fully charging..

Try cycling your battery by letting the phone completely drain it. The voltage calibration in the battery might be off. If that doesn't work, then you will likely need to replace either the phone or the battery. Try asking Sprint for a spare battery, they gave me a used one they had lying around when I lost mine behind a unreachable crevice hahah.

+1 for the quoted post.
If you've tried that,
then it's post #2.
I don't feel like retyping it.

Re: TP not fully charging..

What is Battery Recalibration and Why Would You Need It?

Lithium-Ion batteries (most probably the one in your device) sport a battery level meter, like an electronic "fuel gauge" or State Of Charge meter which is responsible for reading the amount of charge your device’s battery holds at a certain point. Windows Mobile uses the information from those readings to display remaining battery level on your device.

Many of you might have been in the situation (I know I have been) when your device notifies you of low battery but after soft reset, you power meter will show 20-30% left, or simply (and this happened to me several times) it will indicate a full charge when actual battery level is indicated at around 90%, but not 100%. You know you need to “recalibrate your battery” when anything like this happens.

Here’s the deal: even though it is not recommended to fully discharge Li-Ion batteries (as opposed to NiCd batteries), it is advised to do this around every 30-40th cycle (that is approximately 30-40 days or so for most people) in order to recalibrate the metering system on your battery. The principle is simple: you need to drain your battery completely so that the meter would acknowledge a close to 0% and start counting from there. Repeated everyday charging will get this slightly out of accuracy.

The bottom line: completely drain your battery around every 30-40th cycle and do a full recharge with the supplied wall charger while having the device powered off. Keep it charging until you see the fully charged LED notification. You’ve recalibrated your battery and contributed to its longer, healthier life.



Mobadi is a little application to discharge and monitor your internal battery. It will support only different HTC Devices and the Sony Ericsson X1i (Xperia), but Versions for non-HTC Devices are comming up soon. The downloadable Version will run on VGA and non-VGA Devices. On older devices like the Trinity, the Bettery-Percentage are 5% or 10%-Steps. So the Diagram are not so detailed like on the Touch-Versions.

See my thread here to download the Modabi battery app:
