It might be just not showing that it is actually at 100%. You can calibrate it by letting it rundown and die and then giving it a full charge. Is this a brand new phone? If it is I would probably just get a new one while you're within your return period.
Maybe a battery app would help, but I'm not sure.
Peter9477 is a battery Guru(he has an app for the pb called Battery Guru, lol). Maybe he will see this and give you some insight. Or you could pm him.

In the recent couple of weeks, I had the same problem. It used to show 99+ at full charge but it suddenly started hovering around 93 etc. It did not matter if I used a USB/computer or a wall charger. One day, I forgot to carry a charging cable and had to snap up one at the nearest store. Suddenly, it came back up to 99+ and no problem since then.
I cant think of any good explanation and it might be just a coincidence. But the charging cable seems to have some effect. I also remember that my brand new USB car charger did not charge at all, but was totally fine when I changed to a normal cigarette lighter charger of no name brand.

The charging indicator (thunderbolt) never stops and switches to a plug as it does on the other devices. And as it charges forever, but never goes beyond 96%
The handheld is new, but I have already discharged the battery completely once, and I have it for 2 weeks so I'm pretty sure it is a malfunction.

If you were running my app on the PlayBook, I'd ask you to send me the export file and I could analyze it.
As it is, my knowledge of this area doesn't extend to any of the current BB phones, so I'm afraid I can't help. Sorry.

I'm having the same problem since yesterday. The other nite I upgraded to 7.1
I left the device to charge the whole night, when I got up was at 68%. Within a couple of hours the device was drained and shut down completely.
Now it's stock to 70% it wont charge more than that. Tried different cables, the old 9780 power supply and the playbook one too.

I was seeing the same problem with the battery on 126.96.36.1996 only going up to 95% so i decided to try the 188.8.131.528 well the battery died during the day and i mean fast... while i was at work and not in use go figure...and i did a full charge overnight very strange..
Anyway i plugged the phone into my PC at work and this time it charged right up to 100% this was a 1.30 pm its now 9.00pm i have been listening to music for the past few hours i am down to 90%..
I hope its fixed but i did notice another item now missing when i loaded .336 it gave me 3G /H+ in network settings now with .408 it shows 3G and no sign of H+ short changed again...
It would be nice if someone could get the OS better and stop short cutting...Paul Atherton

You can leave a modern laptop Lithium battery connected for 5 years if you wish without damaging it...its the old Ni-Cad batteries you are thinking of from around 12 years ago....
