Want to reset/recallibrate my battery! Have questions :)

Hi all,

I am experiencing some odd behaviour from the battery for my new Sony PRS-t1 ereader (which runs a shell of android):

Firstly, the charge is lower than I'd expect. Nothing crazy, perhaps 2/3rds what it should be. Secondly, the bar count down is all over the place: first bar lasts ages, second bar disappears almost immediately, so it is very difficult to see how much charge is actually remaining.

Anyway, I want to recallibrate the battery, which (apparently, from what I have read) will involve me deleting the file in android that measures the battery charge.

Apparently a factor reset will achieve this (because I cannot access the file to delete it, without jailbreaking the device to get into android). My question is simple: should I have the ereader at full charge when I do the factor reset, or a low charge, or does it not matter?

Should it be charging when I do the reset? Or should I reset it first, then immediately plug into charger?

Any other advice?

Thanks in advance all!

From what I've read on the net and from my experience, with my nook, the most important thing in calibrating the battery is after the battery info is wiped. Fully charge the battery and use it until its fully discharged....
Then repeat the process again and again.
