This is something wierd it just happenend with the battery indicator.

Yesterday I had the phone connected to the computer, and before going to sleep I switch off the computer. So the phone battery was full, the usb attached but with no power. After 10 hours I switch on the computer and check for the phone battery level: 100%. Weird, after 10 hours, wifi on, and android whatsapp running. For the next 20-25 minutes the battery level was steadly decreasing from 100% to 60%. All this with the usb cable connected and the battery indicator showing that the phone was charging.

My gess is that the battery was really at 60% in the morning but for some reason the indicator showed 100% and started to decrease until it reached the real charge.

So, you saw it decreased steadily? Not just jumped directly from 100 to 60?

Yep. It took it around 20 minutes to go from 100 to 60 with the usb plugged in and charging. Thats about a 1% every 30 secs.

I charged empty battery up to 25% before powering on and after Jolla was running it said the battery was at 44%. Then it started dropping and after about 45mins it was at around 33% and dropping. I'd say the way Jolla measures the battery level needs some adjusting.
