    Hi Im new here, and I seem to be having problems with my numeric battery enabled from SBsettings. The battery is kind of messed up cause sometimes when I charge it, it gets stuck on a percent like 87%. But whenever I unplug my iPod from the charger it jumps to a higher percent like 93 or something similar. It still happens when I charge it for almost 1/2 hour, and I'm like WTF it didn't charge?! Any suggestions or fixes are appreciated, and thanks in Advance. Feel free to move my thread cause I didn't really know where to post this.

    its off and this happens a lot, with it on, drain the battery to like 10% cause thats how much it needs to run. its a common feature among the numeric battery. you may have to drain it once a month if needed. i just simply bought a battery app instead.

    No. Battery apps are not as good as numeric battery.

    Usually if you unplug it plug it back in, it should go back to showing that it is charging

    You will need to calibrate your battery, I believe

    I would recommend that you do a charge cycle. Charge it the whole way, kill the battery playing a video or an app, then charge it the whole way again.

    Other things to try:

    - Syncing it to computer.
    - Leaving it charge for a few hours/overnight.
    - Respring and reboot.
    - Reinstall SBsettings.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys, the charge cycle fixed the problem for now. Also would it be safe to charge my iPod for an extended time (like overnight) even if I'm not doing charge cycle? I'm just wondering if this would overcharge or mess up the battery

    You can use your iPod regularly, I recommend doing the charge cycle once a month

    You can leave it charged past the full point without problems. Some people say that it decreases battery charge levels over time but it shouldn't be very significant. It won't overcharge or cause any immediate problems. I leave mine on its dock all night and it's always worked fine.
