    At 1% -___-
    Not sure why it hasn't died honestly. I've been playing Canabalt, Angry Birds, opening mail and refreshing, all at 1%. Glitch? Defective battery?
    I mean, that's great that it's lasting as long as it is at 1 percent but shouldn't it have died like... 8 minutes ago?
    Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar situation.

    have you tried a hard reset? i've found that sometimes mine will say it's at 1% or so for hours, and only tell me the correct amount after a reset. worth a try...

    The easiest way to drain battery would be to watch streaming video on full brightness. At least that's what I do when I try to fully drain the battery every month or so.

    My guess is that you have not calibrated the battery for a while so the actual battery capacity and the reflected percentage is not in sync. After prolong usage, this might happen.
