I didn't check the voltage but the current was a .96-.98a. My guess is that it charges to 100% and falls from there since the screen is constantly on all night while plugged in. 

The battery is set to "Maximize Puffs" in Escribe. 

I'll try it again tonight.

I was down to 18% last night. I put it on a usb charger (Anker PB5000) and it was charging at .96a. This morning it was at 98%, 1037wh.

Hrm. It does turn off the charging circuitry when it fills up, and only turns back on when it has fallen a certain amount. 

I could see adding a feature to turn the charging screen off when it finishes the charge. That might be useful as an indicator anyway.

That's what I was thinking. After a full charge, the screen stays on and chips away at the battery charge. Not too much (.18 wh) but my limited OCD wants to start the day off with 100% [biggrin]. Having the screen dim at a set interval after reaching 100% would be nice.

For the time being set your charging brightness back to 0...you are asleep you know.

We put this option on the to do list for an upcoming update, but it will probably be a week or two.

I thought about setting the brightness to 0 but I like to see what's going on. It's set to 30 now and it only loses 2%. If I unplug and replug, it bounces back to 100% in a few mins so it's not that bad. 

Last night I fully charged it and left it to see what it would be in the morning and it was still at 100% so there's no loss after the 1hr refinement period and it goes to deep sleep. 

Either way, I can wait a week or two for an update. It's not really that big of an issue, just something I thought I'd mention.

I use the lower charge setting anyway so I have never been overly concerned with starting the day fully loaded.  I rotate between two beater mods and there always a charged one around.  The 1000mAh lasts over a day.
