    No this isn't another BatteryGate thread.
    Just a curiosity. With my previous iPhones the phone seemed to alway shut it self off around 2% so I guess it can gracefully close any open file/memory handles.

    I noticed tonight that the phone was at 1% before I hooked it up. Did this change with the 4S? Or was there a setting on by default before for this?

    mine shut off at 1% or below it because it was on 1% for about 20 or so minutes

    battery meter might be out of calibration if it shuts off @ 2%.

    on this phone, it lasts 20-30 minutes at 1% before shutting off.

    Ok. Then it was something with my old 4 then. I remember several times seeing the battery die and once it hit 2% the Apple logo pops up and it shuts down.

    For the sake of your batteries lifespan, it's a very poor idea to allow it to discharge below 5%. It serves no purpose. Just plug it in and charge it.
