I've been reading the amazing battery life thread and thinking, "Yeah.. I totally agree. Battery life has been awesome today." (yesterday). Then I looked a little closer. It had been disconnected since around noon. At midnight, it was still showing 100%. A little while later, it was at 0. I tried removing/replacing the battery. I guess next I'll try a hard reboot, then an exchange. Has anyone seen anything like this? I installed the Battery for WP8 live tile app and it's stuck at 99% (probably rounding 100% differently). :-(

It looks like it might have been a fluke in my case. I left Nokia Music and Sonic the Hedgehog running for a little while and It is discharging steadily and at a decent rate now. I'm going to hold off on the hard reset or the nuclear option..exchanging it.

I may not have done the best job in the world of explaining it, but hopefully that gives you a rough idea. This is why developers can't write apps that do tasks at specific exact times in the background, also, say, for instance, reset a tile at precicely midnight (which is what I want to do in one of my apps). So what I do is just let the periodic task run, and my tile will reset sometime shortly after midnight every day.

Ey there. I actually have the same problem. My battery indicates 100% at all times. I tried rebooting my 822. Same issue. Yesterday, I was thinking "Howly crap, crazy battery life" but then it just pooped out, so i started charging my phone, and it was at a critically low level. It charged to 100% overnight, but I've been playing music, etc. on it, and it still reads 100% a few hours later.
Darn, this is my first issue with the phone. I really like the phone regardless...but ugh, lol.

I had the same problem starting Saturday. It was on 100% all day until about 8 at night and it dropped down to 35% or something like that. Then the next day it was on 100% for a while and all of a sudden dropped to 70%.
Battery life is still good, there is just something messing with the battery life meter.

Mine stays at 100% for a while but then drops to 99, 98, etc if you watch closely so I think it's at 100 longer than it should be but nothing as ugly as described here. Battery level app doesn't update as often so I really use it as a way to tap on from home screen rather than relying on it as a live tile.

If you are seeing sudden battery drops, check what apps you have running as Background tasks. (settings>background tasks) One of those might be the culprit. I know Nokia Drive was toasting my battery for a while after I'd completed a navigation, but I think latest update fixed that.
