    I am going to PM you the instructions I received from somline, but first I will post his warning about changing the MFG rating:

    I tried it a couple of times with no negative impact. After changing this value you need to calibrate. Else you will get some 20drop0 problem. Same is true for changing the age.
    Remember, we are not responsible for damaged batteries, phones, fires, etc.

    PM sent.

    I was getting the death drop at 20% and it was driving me crazy. Thank you for this app, now my battery is recalibrated. It is over a year old, is this a normal time when Pre batteries start crapping out?

    Glad it helped you. I assume a palm (pre/pixi) battery doesn't live much longer than a year. Mine was dead after 3/4 year (the reason to build the app)

    My battery does the death drop around 48%. I reset the health and re-calibrated to 100%. I still get the death drop?? Now I see my health down to 54%.
    1183 mah
    639 mah

    Am I doing something wrong? I have done this twice and the health keeps resetting worse. I originally was at 75% health.

    Any suggestions?

    Time for a new battery. Amazon has new OEM Palm Pre batteries for the current price of $7.99 shipped.

    You could also search ebay for Centro batteries, which work fine in the Pre. Prices are usually $3 to $4 shipped.

    OK, I tried again last night to calibrate. Charged it up and when it got to 49% charged it then skipped to 100% charged. Then when I looked at the health it was back down to about 50%

    this battery is dead. Health does not go below 50. Your health may be lower than 50.
    Please buy a new battery as Trekker already said.

    EDIT: To be precise: "The AS (Health) is a 1-byte value that has a range of 49.2% to 100%."

    Assuming you ask for the secret to change the Manufacturer Rating: done.

    Ok, I got this battery from Dealextreme. The manufacturer rating was 1150, but using the secret code I changed it to 2300 and waited for it to discharge to start calibrating. Problem is it began charging normally, reached 94% (around 2100mah) and then the phone just shut down by itself. Not suddenly, the phone started the shut down process (the round logo in the middle of the screen). I tried to power it on again, but after some seconds of watching the palm logo blinking on the screen it just shut down again. I unplugged it, tried once more but the phone showed the battery logo with a question mark inside it (like when you try booting it without a battery). After a few minutes, it just booted normally.
    The battery now shows 2093 mAh, 4.11V. I'm worried I may have tried to overcharge it. Should I manually set the rating to say 2000 and try again?

    I really think you fried it, it happened to me also. Try lowering the max rate, but I really don't expect much. Mine began dying whenever I tried to take a picture, the phone just shut down.

    I'd really recommend you to try to get a replacement, but I couldn't.

    Too bad these batteries don't have proper overcharge protection

    Yeah, me too. I just powered the phone off to insert my SIM card, and when I tried booting it up again I couldn't, the screen was black
    After removing and inserting the battery a couple of times, it finally booted, but I'm seeing strange ssl errors in my email, which I hadn't seen before. Well, back to my Mugen 1400 it is then...

    How long have you been using your battery? If it's been awhile, you may need to re-calibrate it to prevent the sudden "death drop syndrome" at a certain percentage.

    Once you re-calibrate it, the overall health will probably decrease but it will be a more accurate estimation.
