    Yeah if it's nearly dead let it die a least once then fully charge it and it calibrates the battery meters (I believe anyway).

    Mmm... mine never ran hot... but it does get pretty warm when the phone is being charged.

    Is there any way to show battery percent instead of the meaningless icon in the status bar?

    I've found my battery life to be less than stellar. I went through a full charge yesterday in a little over half a day with average usage. This hasn't really been a problem since I have the ability to charge it at work, home, in car etc. Now, just waiting for Google and htc make those docks available!!

    I noticed today that putting the screen on auto rather than a brightness greatly enhances the battery. My display usage went from 53% to 31% just by using auto dim.

    I think there is something wrong with your phone or you have some crazy software running. I have a great battery life out of this phone compared to iPhone and the G1. I test run Nexus from 100% charged for 10 hours including downloads apps play music uploaded pictures heavy used on internet with wifi and 3g. My phone is still have 27% level of charge.

    I dont know what is causing it,maybe beautiful widgets or something(aimless stabbing)but also is it me or does the battery take forever to charge?
