Hi there,

recently I noticed that my battery doesn't fully charge.
I play with it in the evening to discover new apps etc... until the phone has about 30% of battery left.
Then I plug it in to charge. Not with the USB to PC but with a erm, socket (?) I don't know the english word but am sure you understand Smiley
When I wake up, I notice the battery hasn't charged but when I take the cable out, it says it has charged to 80-90% (with a 10h charge!)
I'm running S2U2, SPB Mobile Shell and many other apps...
Has anyone experienced this? If so, did you find a sollution?
Am going to do a hard reset now (AGAIN!) and see what it gives in a couple of days...

Greets,

Peejee

as you can imagine, i use my Omnia quite a bit. In the evenings, i generally flash it a bit, so i have to charge it up as much as possible.

It always charges to 100%. Do you leave the screen on? Because i have noticed that it never seems to fully charge when the screen is on. When i turn the screen off, the green light comes up straight away if it's been charging for a while.

You can charge these devices as much as possible (it is recommended). Try not to charge for long periods, rather charge short periods often. It's what the battery likes.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

The device turns off the screen after 30 seconds automatically but I also press the power button myself, so the screen is off...
I find it very strange.
Have done a hard reset now and have already managed to get 55% off by just installing programs and setting it right Smiley
Am charging now and maybe I'll already see what the problem is...
Will keep you posted.

MY Omnia also have nearly the same problem.
It always shows the charging icon although it is full. I have try 14 hours charging, but the icon still is charging.

Is there any solution?
Thanks

Hmm, I am thinking the internal gage is off a little. Try using the Omnia until the battery is dead. Then allow to recharge and see if the internal gauge gets reset. If that does not work then I would consider calling the company where you purchased it have them replace the battery.

Thanks, JASTECH τΏτ

I think I should go to the company to ask about this problem.
I am easy going but it is a bit annoyed

Try this, switch off, remove battery & put it back & switch on & charge.

Don't quite know what the "internal gage" means, my english isn't THAT good Cheesy

Have done a hard reset now and am waiting for the battery to get empty (can't play with it much a.t.m. because I have to study for my exams)
I did however notice that it has fully charged yesterday (after hard reset) even though I have installed all my programs back onto the phone, except for SPB Mobile Shell, since I went back to my old iFonz theme Smiley

Will try to keep you guys posted but as I said, I don't have much time because I have to study...

Best greetings,

Peejee
