Your readings seem ok, it seems to me that the battery is ok. you only lost 10% in three hours, well, I know, maybe you did not use it very intensely. What OS version are you on? My phone, same Z10, STL100-1, has very good battery life, almost 24 hours continuously. I am an average to heavy user, BBM a lot, many emails and around 20-25 calls a day. I have 10.2.1.2102, recently got the update to this version, but even before that, my Z performed beautifully. From the photo you posted, I see no reason to worry, see what happens.
I have the -1925, i guess i need to get my upgrade too. But here is what also happened, twice today. The battery just drained! No warning. I downloaded a battery watcher just in case the App Monitor wasn't working properly. I have been charging the battery now since it switched off about 2hours ago.

Don't use generic or weak chargers with your Z10. They throw off the charging circuits. To recalibrate and solve your issues follow these steps: Take out the dead battery, SIM card and SD card. Plug in the original BlackBerry charger that came with the phone. Hold the power button for 3 seconds or until you see the red light come on. Leave the phone in this state for at least 2 minutes or until it shuts off completely on it's own. You may or may not see the red battery outline or the white blackberry logo on the screen. Plug out the charger and leave everything out for 1 hour. Replace everything and allow the phone to charge. Never use weak chargers on your Z10 again.
I'm not saying that weak chargers are the cause or the only thing that can trigger this flaw in the phones but it is a factor in many cases of battery charging circuit miscalibration.

I've been experiencing the same thing with my Z10 as well...I use a PB charger or the charger that came with the unit.
I tried going back to it for work, because the size is better for me at work, but in the end, I think I have to stay with the Z30 I have...its a beast.

delete extra apps to save battery
I seem to have found a somewhat ambiguous solution to my Z10 battery issues. I am on 10.2.1.2102. After that update my battery life plummeted from 8-10 hours of moderate use to 6 hours at most with minimal use, wifi off, Lte off, etc. I tried calibration. Didn't help. Yesterday morning I just thought I would clear out some unused apps, mostly games. Apparently one of them was bogging down my system. The device monitor was reporting "system " battery drain to be as high as 75%. After deleting apps it is now at 2.8%. What a huge difference! My phone now will last 12 hours plus with moderate to heavy use. I have my phone back finally.
