Old_tex said: Well, it has been almost one week since I issued this "fix" for Rovio. My battery shows all bars green. It has more "pep" than ever before. I feel sure that it is the root cause for all the battery issues (where the battery is not just dead). Anyone having battery problems or, at least, short battery life should consider this fix.

Are you kidding??Since "YOU" issued the "fix"??? If you will just glance up a post or two where I told you what the problem was and what to do about it!
Glad I was able to help you post a fix with my investigation, my discovery ,my information and my resolution! Most of all I'm glad YOU figured it out.

I had the same issue...it ended up being the connection inside the dock that disables current to the charging pads when Rovio is off the dock. I just wired around the positive connector.It looked like a bit of over engineering anyway...probably a safety feature to insure no shorts while it's off the dock. The charge buttons fall below the surface so I don't see any harm in this "repair" .
