Weird Battery Activity: It regenerates!!

Never experienced this panorama experience before...

I am using SONY XPERIA sola and I updated the device (myself using the Update center in the phone) to the latest GingerBread firmware...

...and soon I realised that it drained the battery like HELL!! (but I already get used to it anyway since it still new to me...)

What really weird is that somehow, though the battery drain super-fast (when running CPU-hungry apps) and the battery dropped like a rollercoaster...

...I found out that somehow the battery REGENERATES itself...

-See at the middle- (I DID NOT EDIT!)

There's a bit lift off in the middle line and as you can see I DIDN'T CHARGE IT at that time...

It isn't just my phone, some of my friends (which they were WALKMAN series users) also had this weird condition happen...

So... What did you put into making a battery, SONY? XD (or my phone and/or battery had problems??)

Re: Weird Battery Activity: It regenerates!!

cooling down effect. When the phone heats up it loses battery faster, if it cools down then within 2-3 mins, a bit of battery will regenrate.

Hmm, that sounds/looks strange I must admit..

Sounds like it would be wise to try performing a repair of your phone's software.

You can easily perform the interaction with our program Sony PC Companion, available for download from the link below.

Hi, thanks for the reply...

Is it safe to update?

Please check for me...

Re: Weird Battery Activity: It regenerates!!

Anyone... Help!!

Can anyone teach me how to fix the firmware of my phone using the PC Companion (without having upgrade to ICS because I have a feeling that it won't fix my problem but making it worse!)?

My battery is worsened by the minute...

...and don't tell me to use the method:

1. Turn off the phone, open  the phone's back cover, remove it, wait 5 mins, and so on...

...because the problem here is that my phone is locked with screws...

Anyone can help, many thanks and appreciated.. Winking Face

Re: Weird Battery Activity: It regenerates!!

Well, I had to live it up as in fact the sola IS supplied with a very low battery Slightly frowning Face

I did thought about updating to ICS but fearing about the bugs, the internet speed, and lack of RAM on my PC... Face with stuck-out Tongue

I had to think twice...
