Update: charged all night on the plate and it was fine I'll keep an eye on it. I wonder if there was something in the last update Nokia sent out that changed this. I noticed it the battery saver screen initially there was no line predicting how long the batter would last like on WP7.5. After nokia's last update this was back. That is also about the time my phone started acting funky. So fat after soft reset all is good on both the charging plate and stand. Anyone else notice this?

Normal charging, light goes off when battery is full.
Nokia Wireless Charging Plate. User Guide - Charge your device - Nokia - USA
Long blink when battery is already full when you put it on the charger.

Fast blink indicates charging problem.
Hope this helps.

I think the light on my charger wouldn't go out because of a certain App I was running (I do not know which one however)... Put the phone on the charger yesterday, and eventually (after ~3 hrs) it was fully charged and the light slow blinked for a while, maybe 5 minutes that I notice.. But eventually the slow blink would stop and it became a full light again.
Anyway, over night, I took the phone back off the charger and just had it sitting by itself. Well, it died in the 7 hours I was sleeping. COMPLETELY died, down to the "Red Battery of Death" died.
So, my theory...I was not getting the light blink because some app was running in the background and eating up power like NOBODY'S business. It was basically eating it nearly as fast as it could charge it...so the phone wasn't staying at 100% very long and it would need to top up again. No idea what was running that killed it that fast...maybe Skype that I had opened up the day before? The phone has been on the wired charger at work for the last 2 hours, nearly charged up.

Yea i think we can conclude it's either the software's fault or my phone is defective (which i think it is it has like every single problem listed LOL) because i just changed to a different charging plate and even if the battery's at 100% the white light still stay always lit

CONFIRMED - same issue here.
Quite a number of small Lumia issues adding up ... in addition to the random freeze and reboots. Annoying!
I had to take my 7 years old SonyEricsson (dumb phone) from the garbage, and bring it with me on my business trip before Christmas - my new smart-phone wasn't smart enough ...

The charging plate and the phone are totally two independent systems. The charging plate has no knowledge of the phone and apps running on the phone. If fact the charging plate can be used with other Qi compatible devices.
I have found the battery indicator an estimate of the charge left on the phone and not 100% accurate reflection since the software on the phone only trys to determine how much power is left in the battery.
I would not worry about the the charge light being on even though the phone is showing otherwise, the light is the best indicator that the battery has fully charged or not, as it will detect no more current is able to pass through the battery and auto switch off, as I have had this happen to me too. The light indicator turns off approx 30-40 mins after the phone indicator has stopped flashing.
When I first got my lumia I used it until the battery was totally dead i.e unable to switch it on. I found even when it auto switches off 'Goodbye' message I was able to switch the phone back on after 30mins and it would last for about another 1hr. I then fully placed the phone on the charge plate, it will auto switch off and on several times as the phone battery is starting from zero power and will take 2-3 mins to wake. I then leave it to charge until the charge light turns off.
I repeated this process several times, and found battery life greatly improved. I am guessing a complete drain of the battery and 100% charge and repeating this 2-3 times somehow refreshes the 'internal battery charge memory' and 'primes' all of the charging cells.
I am getting consistent 35hrs between charges (light and moderate usage, no background apps apart from Nokia drive)

Currently, I use Battery Status. They just added a "Full Charge" timer and an "average time between charges" has always been there, I am getting about 19 hours from a full charge, I was "15 hour between charges" (charging in the car really kills that, especially if we are out shopping and the car is on/off every 20 minutes.)
