    The other day I charged my wifes Focus, and the indicator remained about 3/4 full.

    I charged it last night, same deal, so I pulled and replaced the battery which then told me it was crtically low. So I swapped the batter to my focus and it was fully charged. Dropped my battery into her focus and it still is critical, but the phone is really charged.

    Before I try a reset, any suggestions to trip it back to working the way it should? A battery calibrator?

    The phone is not rooted/jailbroken, so no Home Brew solutions will work :(

    Any help is appreciated.

    CHecked the forums, but anyone with simliar issues never had a solution posted.

    I actually just had something similar happen to me yesterday.

    When I was at work, the phone died. So on my way home, I had it plugged into a USB charger in my car. I have a 1 hours commute home.

    When I arrived at home, and unplugged the phone, I was surprised to hear the "battery low" alert. So I got inside, and plugged it into a wall charger (Kindle Fire charger.)

    I woke up this morning, and when I took the phone off the charger, it still said battery is critically low. So I powered down the phone, removed the battery and waited 1 minute. When I plugged it back in, it no longer had the critical battery warning, but it now showed a full charge with the heart icon over the battery.

    I went into the battery saver settings, and both settings were checked. I unchecked "battery saver mode now" and the heart went away. Then the phone showed 98% charged.

    Having had a WP7/7.5 device for well over a year now, this was, by far the most awkward little bug I've encountered.

    I guess my only suggestion would be pull the battery for 30 seconds or longer, then turn it back on and check all battery saver settings over. Good luck to you.
