    Okay so the past like week or two every few mornings I wake up after charging my phone all night to the battery level thing only being 3/4 full. But the green light is on, if I reset my phone it'll go to full as it should, and if I just leave it, it wont show me losing battery until the battery physically catches up to where it is showing. Is there any known reason this issue is happening? It's not a huge issue but I'm hoping it's easily fixed.

    I have heard of this before. Have you updated your phone to the current OS and firmware? Try to recondition the battery, let it run completely dead until it turns off on it's own then recharge completely. Do this a few times. This will recalibrate the battery reading.

    Yes my phone is up to date, but I'll try letting it die completely before charging, thanks!

    Something similar happened to me just now. HD7 with Mango on it.
    The battery level indicator was low, so I connected it to my laptop. The battery indicator changed as if it was charging, but the battery charge level remained at 0% (I can see this in settings - battery saver). When i disconnected the phone, the "Clitically low battery" message appeared. I tried pluging-it into the power outlet, but the same thing was happening. It didnt seem to charge the battery.

    Then I removed the battery for a few seconds, put it back in and turned on the phone. The battery level is now 51% and it's charging.

    So even though WP7 didnt know, the battery was charging. But the OS kept saying that the battery is empty.

    Should I worry?

    I had that once when i had flashed a new ROM update on my Omnia wizake, the OS just seemed to be confused until i just let the battery die and then recharged it.

    It just needed the battery indicator recallibrated by doing what SinlessEarth has suggested.

    Don't think you have anything to worry about, but what about that smoke coming from the earphone socket ? ;)

Thanks!
