    Like the title say. Everytime it only show as 94% charge. Am I doing anything wrong?

    I was at Jailbreak 2.1 when this happen and I thought it was Jailbreak problem. However, I restore and update to 2.2 and the problems remains?

    Check my sig for a battery guide and possible help - your battery meter may need recalbrating (via full discharge and full recharge).

    Oh, so what I need to do is to drain the battery to zero then follow by a charge till my iPod battery is full?

    Yes, drain the battery fully to zero, then plug in and let it charge to 100% full.

    I almost ALWAYS cycle my changes (drain to zero, charge to 100%) as it is good for the battery.

    Sometimes mine reads either 94% or 96% when it is full. I don't know why and had always wondered. For example, I'll have it plugged in all night, and in the morning it will still say 94%. Then, when I unplug it, the battery meter (in the status bar) jumps to 100. So its a common issue. Your not the only one.

    In conclusion, the battery meeter is not always "100%" accurate!
