Im confused? Where is the problem here?

If your battery is not on the charger, then it will always report 'discharging'...it just means it is currently in use.

If your battery is below 90% and is on the charger, then it will show 'charging'

If your battery is 90% OR higher, and on the charger, the phone WILL NOT charge; this was a kernel level adjustment made by Google to save battery charge cycles. Your battery MUST fall below 90% to charge.

Ehm... Italian translation of «discharging» is «almost empty», translation is bad?
I receved ever time (if is not on the charger) message «discharging». Is good?

The English word "discharging" simply means that the battery is being used.  It will only ever be "charging" or "discharging", there is no other possibility.  It's like the word "disappear", the opposite is "appear".

If your phone is off the charger, then the phone is running on the battery, thus  discharging it. This is normal. That screen is basically telling you that the battery is at 90% charge and draining. Now if it's saying that while it's plugged in and charging, then that'd definitely be peculiar, perhaps even something to worry about.

Hope that helps.

I receving good english message "discharging" / "Charging"...
But bad italian translation of "discharging" is: "Quasi Scarico" = almost empty.
Good Translation Italian is: "In utilizzo" not "Quasi Scarico"

I was having this as well, and I had to go back to a Modaco Froyo Rom.
Within 10hrs of very little use, the Desire was empty. And the only thing showing in 'partial wakes' was 'Android'.
With the Modaco Froyo rom (r8) I get 36hrs with the same type of use.

Im getting the same thing on stock vibrant.  There are these battery status messages:

  • Not Charging
  • Charging
  • Discharging

Why would it be discharging while plugged in?  If i reboot the phone, it works fine until the end of the day when the battery is down below 15-20% and ready for the nightly charge.  Then it does this discharging thing.

Something of note, I get the low battery warning dialog.  When i plug it in, this goes away.  Even when looking at the battery status, it goes from "Not Charging" to "Discharging" after plugging it in.  So it knows something is going on, but im not sure why it would decide to suck the life out of the battery.
