Might as well be active in this forum, as I keep hitting items that I can't find info about.
First, the situation: My original battery is getting old
The interesting part:
It dies fast, or so it believes itself to be dead.... my phone has now been on a 0% life left on battery for over an hour, and I've been playing music (using speaker) on it to aggravate the situation.
With Dr. Battery I have
Capacity left = 0mAh
Temp = 28C
Voltage = 3.59V
Current = -141.01 mA
The health tab gives me:
Man. rating = 1183 mAh
Calc left = 982 mAh
So I'm awaiting the power to reach 3.413 V for the recalibration now, but it's been fluctuating now and then but finally appears stable and slowly going down.
I'm figuring that this battery is at least 1.5 years old, probably 2+ years, as I did get this phone used, so I would believe that this sort of thing must be normal when the battery gets this old and has been used enough, but it's still a bit strange to state 0% when there's quite a bit of power left.
