Default Dead Battery?

This started, I believe, a couple weeks ago.

I will charge my Fuze all night, a normal routine, and that is plenty of time to charge it. Recently, though, after I charge it, it only shows most of it.

I have used more than one charger, so it's not that. I have noticed that on the original firmware, it shows a full charge.

Does anyone know what's going on?

My Fuze in Rockbox never shows more than 93%97%. How long does the charge actually last? You could try a battery bench to get an accurate runtime. If it's in the ballpark of the ones posted on the AMS Runtimes page you should be OK..

My V1 will take a long time to go from an indicated 99% charge in Rockbox to 100%.....enough so that I don't pay it any attention.....99% is good enough. But like yours, the battery icon in the OF will be full.

I never leave mine charging overnight....from what I understand, it is safe to do, but I just don't feel right doing it.
