I did wonder that myself. This time, it seems to be sitting at 3/4 full for awhile longer. Maybe the next charge will do the trick. So far, I don't mind recharging regularly, but I don't want to over charge (since a Kobo rep on this forum said that the battery will only tolerate so many charges in its lifetime), and I don't want to be caught without my laptop or my charger nearby. Oh well...funny how old fashioned 'books' suddenly look appealing again..lol
