I am using Ainol NOVO7 Aurora 2.
I've tried the command prompt changes (both of them) and upgraded the ROM to 0925. No success! The battery usage still sticks at 100%.
I see that there is a feiyu 1105 (and possibly a later one still).
Is it possible that the latest ROM might fix the problem?

If you're rooted, use an app to delete your battery stats.

Thanks for the suggestion but I have tried Battery Calibration apps to delete the stats files. No good!

Would be great, but the Tablet stops unexpectedly.

I'm running 1105, but I've never encountered the battery problem myself.

I believe that the newer version rom's may have had the battery workaround fix implemented in them.

If you're rooted go pick up Titanium Backup and backup all your stuff, install the 1105 rom and then restore your apps.

On a sidenote... avoid the 1210 Jellybean rom, no gapps amongst other things!

Happens about once a month to me. I just follow the instructions on this thread:

Fixes it every time - except if I forget step 3.

I am running a version of CM10 from last year.

I did instal the feiyu 1105 rom and found that the ram had increased to 2gb, the battery problem was fixed (reads % remaining) and did away with the "pops" that would sound whilst the tablet was in standby. There may well be other benefits too.

I feel more confident in the unit's operation.
