Thanks for the advice Guys.
I went onto Appbrain.com and searched for 'Battery Calibration', and found an app by the same name.
It states that it removes the batterystats.bin system file and the OS creates a new one. It actually worked when I tried it. Magic !

The battery is designed to do that as a safety measure. If you repeatedly try to force it to stay at 100% it can cause the battery to die a horrible death. So, once it has fully charged and then immediately drops to 98% don't worry about it, it's fine.

freefaller, 17 May 2011Does anyone know the answer to this: When I charge my phone the battery meter reads 100%, b... moreTry this: Bump charge it (even if it's full for one hour--> use it until COMPLETELY flat (try turning it on and let if off to make sure)--> Charge it while it's off (dont turn on) until it shows 100% --> Boot in recovery (Vol up + Home + Power, keep all pressed until it show Galaxy S screen, then let all go. It will take you to Recovery Mode) --> Use your Volume Key to navigate to ADVANCE (Select the option by Power Key) --> Wipe Battery Stats --> Reboot (when the phone is on, unplug when you see the Full Battery Notification)--> Use it until it flats and charge full (no need to have it off) and repeat 2 or 3 times. Now your phone is back to normal. It's called Battery Calibration. Hope it helps, mate :D

i have had my samsung galaxy s 19000i for about 2 months now
am really enjoying it, if you look after your phone like buying a screen protector and silicone case and you dont abuse it in any way, then you wont have any problems, apps i download a couple of game apps play them for a few days and delete them still plenty of internal memory i also go into task manager and delete cache and restore memory and i take pics and use the camcorder but what i have not done is upload them to pc as yet. over all love my galaxy s

Does anyone know the answer to this:
When I charge my phone the battery meter reads 100%, but when I disconnect the charger the meter immediately drops down to 97% or 98%. If I reconnect the charger it carries on charging up to a full 100%.
I have heard that this is an Android fault. Does anyone experience the same as me, and does anyone know WHY it does this?
