    No matter what, mine always starts at 99% as soon as I unplug it.

    Anyone sees 100% on unplugged phone?

    are you surprised? Every Treo I,ve had did the same thing. As soon as you unplug, battery is powering phone, and reserve is dropping. It really couldn't be at a true 100%.

    Was gonna say the same... apparently what they're looking at rounds down at that point (99.9 is not 100, but 99). Makes sense because when the charger is removed it can no longer truly be at 100.

    I was used to my previous Palm devices show 100% right after unplugging them from the charger.

    Is this a Treo feature?

    Treo feature? Guess so. It's just that as soon as you've unplugged it, it has already taken a sip of juice from the battery. So it can no longer be at 100.0000%!

    This behavior is consistent on my 650 by the way (and 600).

    Ok. I see it now. I come from a LifeDrive, and even after heavy use, it will stay at 100% for a few minutes before going to 99%

    I understand no battery is ever at 100.00000000%, but 99.9999999% rounds to 100% if you use no decimal points in the meter (so does 99.5).

    Not a big deal. I was just curious...

    I've been curious, too. Couple apps I've got that display % round like 5/4 but don't appear to do it at 100%. IOW, 99.5 appears as 99, but 98.5 also appears as 99 (first instance rounds down but once below 99 they round like you would expect).

    Weather it's "sipping juice" or not, my 600 always started at 100%. My 680 has never started at 100%, sometimes 99%, sometimes 94%, but never 100%. Maybe it's a "truer" measure of battery life, better measuring the battery than the 600 was. Either way, it should still show 100% even for just a short time after being charged. Although, the way the battery life has been for most of us, an instantaneous battery drop is actually more accurate.
    a dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste
