Thanks for that. I really hope you're right. It has had a few cycles already, but then again, those cycles were messed up with the bad kepub.

I don't know what the normal charge time is though. Mine takes about 2.5 hours from fully drained to fully charged.

Thanks GeoffR, I was wondering about charge time. I thought mine was really quick last few times which would indeed point to a bad battery, BUT, thanks to your and Voidoid's time indication maybe it wasn't that quick. I'll have to time it next time, now that I know that 2.5 hours is normal.
