I have an Archos Jukebox Recorder 10Gb with Rockbox
latest Bleeding edge plus Archos Firmware 1.27d for my
recording and playlist creation duties.

When the battery meter in Rockbox goes down to 9%
the Jukebox powers off after a few moments, but when I
boot back into the Archos firmware the battery meter
shows 75% charge and I can continue to use the
Jukebox for an extra hour or so.
This task depends upon

I have the same problem along these lines. When I first boot
up my Archos, using either the regular batterys, another pair
of rechargables, or standard AA batterys, the battery meter
will read 9%, jump to 100% and stay there until I reboot the
player. At that point it will jump to 9%, then slowly climb up
1% at a time until it reaches a random number, regardless of
battery charge.

yeah yeah, it _is_ inaccurate but doing it accurate is hard
