    Needs DrBatterySrv installed:

    In Terminus, Terminal, shh, WebosQI:

    And reboot.

    I put this inside of a while loop:
    Code:
    while true; do date; echo '2^2^20' | time -p bc > /dev/null; sleep 1; done
    You will have to install bc, but that's trivial if you have optware:
    Code:
    ipkg-opt install bc
    Good idea but this will reduce the time you have to connect the charger. You have exactly 19.5 mV "time" to connect the charger. Means as long it takes to reduce the Voltage from 3412,5 to 3393mV. This depends on the drain you have. And with this fine prog you HAVE a drain ;-)

    Did you set the health to 100%? If not please do so and try again.

    When I designed the prog I was thinking about setting the Health automatically to 100%. But I wanted do reduce the changes I automatically do as small as possible. If the app fails you sit there with 100% on a 60% battery, So I decided to leave it in your decision ;-)

    Thanks
    I have calibrated my battery twice in the past 24 hours, and can confirm that Dr. Battery solved the "20drop0" problem that I have been experiencing for a while. After calibrating, I received the low battery warning at 20%, 10% and "will shut down soon" with plenty of time to get to the charger.

    Unfortunately, my battery's health is 61%, so it's time for a replacement.

    I've hoped someone will proof it. Thanks. Even though I'm sorry you need a new battery.

    And when I already posted the secrets of the upcoming version:

    To set the health to what ever you want (between 50 and 100%):
    Code:
    luna-send -n 1 palm://de.somline.drbatterysrv/SetBatteryAGE '{'percentage':'95'}'
    Example sets Health to 95%. Don't need a reboot.

    Returns:
    Code:
    ** Message: serviceResponse Handling: 2, {"status":"OK"}

    Great app. Battery health went from 67% to 80%.

    This is interesting (EDIT: and unusual). Can you please give us more info? Did you had a problem before? Do you have a stock battery?
    Thanks

    Ya, which is exactly why I didn't get the charger plugged in in time the first time around. I let it boot, and let Dr. Battery take me from 2% the second time, and I had enough time to get it on the charger.

    I'll try again with the battery set at 100% later tonight. Thanks!

    I am calibrating at this very moment, only I didn't reset my batteries health to 100% before caibrating *face palm*. Is it okay to reset the health during the calibration; and will it still calibrate correctly?

    I think this answers my question in the post above.

    So would you recommend I attempt another calibration Somline, this time reseting my health prior to calibrating??

    Actually I don't know. I think it will work since you don't have to reboot when changing the Health (age)

    I got the error message in mid calibration. I'm going to try it again.

    So I calibrated my 1 week old seldom used (maybe 3 times) original Palm 1150 Battery which is reporting 1183 as manufacturer rating. It turned out with 1159 as calculated left at 98%. This I would name quality seidio!.

    EDIT my cheap 1150 has 1000.

    yeah im using stock battery. I have noticed that my pre would stay on 100% battery capacity for ages. I also noticed that when calibrating, webos reported 100% battery charge but the battery doctor kept going for ages and the mAh went way past what my battery was reporting on the health screen.

I have a feeling the drain per hour will show much higher now which is fine, at least it will be accurate. We'll see if this fixes my 20%-0% issue when it drains down again.
    I just wanted to add that this has corrected my 20%-0% issue.
    Thank you.

    i suggest that you get the patch that shows the "actual" battery level. otherwise it only changes the meter after 20% of the battery life is gone.

    Thanks. No complaints here. I think 15 months, with moderate use and overclocking, is reasonable battery life.

    Many thanks, somline, for your excellent work.

    But you got that "calibration successfully finished" message?
    Very strange but good for you ;-)
