Kindle K3 discharges on a charger - strange

Hi!

I have noticed several times that when I put my K3(fw3.0.3.) on it's supplied charger it will charge in 4-5 hours, and the LED turns green indicating full battery. But if I leave it on the charger it starts discharging! The capacity only goes down, and rapidly?! On a charger, yes

The log file confirms this. Here are the latest entries:

Code:
Started charging at 3:42AM:
-----------------
110105:034221 Connected to a charger: 3783
110105:034317 powerd[3644]: I def:battinfo:cap=40%, mAh=742mAh, volt=3846mV, current=611mA, temp=77F, bp=3846mV, lmd=1860mAh, cycl=0, cyct=6:

K3 Reports 100% at 6:13AM and keeps at full until 9:40AM:
-----------------
110105:061350 powerd[3644]: I def:battinfo:cap=100%, mAh=1860mAh, volt=4188mV, current=89mA, temp=68F, bp=4188mV, lmd=1860mAh, cycl=0, cyct=6:
110105:094029 charger: Stop charging as battery is full
110105:094354 powerd[3644]: I def:battinfo:cap=100%, mAh=1854mAh, volt=4183mV, current=-110mA, temp=68F, bp=4183mV, lmd=1860mAh, cycl=1, cyct=7:

The very next status after saying the batt is full the discharge starts (9:53AM):
-----------------
110105:095354 powerd[3644]: I def:battinfo:cap=99%, mAh=1836mAh, volt=4169mV, current=-111mA, temp=68F, bp=4169mV, lmd=1860mAh, cycl=1, cyct=7:

With the charger plugged in, still discharges!!! By 2:03PM it's at 86%, with WiFi OFF!:
------------------
110105:140359 powerd[3644]: I def:battinfo:cap=86%, mAh=1601mAh, volt=4046mV, current=-147mA, temp=77F, bp=4046mV, lmd=1860mAh, cycl=1, cyct=7:
The sequence shows the start of charging, report of 100%, and discharging, all with the charger plugged in, and the battery icon showing the connection???

Any help would be appreciated! Why is it rapidly discharging on a charger and how?

I can provide a full log if that would help!

Greetings from Croatia!

Interesting I have not noticed that. I will have to check my K3 out to see if that happens.

The point is to leave it on a charger after the LED goes green. It seems like it keeps at 100% and then decides it has had enough and starts training the battery.?!
