Pine Phone Battery Issue
#16
Comments on charging,  that may or may not be pertinent :
  Use a good Smart phone charger.
Using your Laptop or Desktop to charge your phone will likely be a problem, except for trying to stretch the charge.

Of the 5 separate/different versions of Pine phones I have purchased,  only one of the PMOS convergent models has charged strangely
but that was only the first few days, and I was using a borrowed charger at that time...

Currently my most used Pine phone, a PMOS convergent model running the latest Nightly Mobian from an sd-card, does charge to 100% (indicated)
then it cycles down to about 93%,  and then charges back to 100%.

That seems normal to me,  when I use a battery charger on my vehicle it does the same thing,  charge full power until a certain voltage is reached,
then it will cycle on & off known as floating.

I would "Worry"  if the charger held the charge at 100%  ?

* Also this is software, so what is indicated as 100%,  is most likely not the actual 100% maximum compacity of  the of the battery,
But rather a safer 'set-point' reference of the software.

Just my opinion,  but I believe it is valid.

( Did you remove the shipping tape from the battery contacts ? )
