Below is an email recived today from a 'Dmitry' @ Mugen and my reply.
This is quite positive and I would encourage anyone experiencing glitches with
these units to respond directly, even if you should not actually recieve contact from Mugen as suggested here.
Please see also @: Mugen Battery received
Thank you for your email!
We will send over a email to all Pre3 owners with our batteries and ask about this - this seems to be a very odd issue. Please ask anyone who has it to contact us directly so we can handle the issue according to our warranty procedure.
Please contact me if you need any additional info: sales @ mugen.hk
Thank you for your positive response.
Yes.. there appear to be a couple of very 'odd' issues indeed specifically linked to the HP Pre3 and particularly this most recent batch of Mugen HLI-PRE3SL 1400mAh Batteries.
I will post your message on the webOS Nation Forum for any other members there experiencing these issues, to respond to directly.
It has been suggested there that the battery configuration/control chip/circuitry is possibly not communicating correctly with the Pre3's A6 power management firmware in webOS V 2.2.4.
Best Regards & Thanks...
