Ive done all the charging discharging routine. It can only be a/. a smaller battery or b/. a faulty charger/battery/ combination. Raz is sure its not the battery being smaller, and without opening it and testing I have to go for the second option. (It may be a short inside but without having a spare unit on hand of which I would exchange anyway for the bigger capacity, Im not opening it yet) Im not prepared to return the unit because transportation costs are more than me spending $35 on a new 8000mAh battery and charger from Chinagrabber. I am happy with what I got. Had I been traveling to HK in the next month or so I may have turned up on the doorstep and asked.. "fix this please" but Im not going that way this time.
If they get all the ROMS sorted, and its nearly there, this is a kick ass machine.
edit:: sorry for saying ass... I meant bottom.
