Mine does the same thing. I plug it in at night I wake up like 7-8hrs later and it's at 92-96%

Whoa, hadn't read of this observation yet. If it's common throughout the build then at least makes the chance of a general battery fix that much more likely.

Mine also does this. I noticed the other day, it went down to 97%, while charging.

This has happened twice to me. On charge all night, wake to a 98% charge level. Both times I was running Nightstand all night. Hasn't happened otherwise.

Mine does the same thing, I also noticed something strange the other day, I had put it on charge using the battery doctor app, when I unplugged it the battery level indicator on the phone showed the battery at 93%. I started up battery doctor and it showed the battery level at 98% ... funny thing is that when battery doctor was running and showing 98% the phones battery indicator also changed to show 98%, then when I closed battery doctor the phones battery indicator returned to showing 93% ..... I tried this a couple of times and the same thing happened every time?

I don't have this problem. I did use it out of the box until it died though... I have charged it all night every night and in the morning been greeted by the fully charged symbol.

It won't, if you've rebooted, or anything.

I didn't reboot. Took off charger last night at 11pm, it's 10:27pm, 23 hrs later, 1% and counting down.
