Default cowon j3 battery life meter jumps from 100% to 75% normal?

i realized that after a few hours of usage, my new j3 had gone from 100% battery to 75%. Is this normal? Because i did not see any percentage in between 100 and 75 percent. i may have not charged it fully, and thus caused the jump, so can anyone tell me how to tell if the cowon j3 is fully charged or not?

been using my j3 for a week. and yes its completely normal i suppose.. like most people have mentioned in this forum, the battery percentage isn't accurate at all.. so don't rely on it.. and how to tell if its fully charged? when it says its fully charged then it'd be fully charged itself. Its just the battery meter don't have precise readings.. thats what I know from what ive read on abi.

The J3 only displays battery status in 25% steps. It's normal, displaying only 100 > 75 > 50 > 25 > 0%.
