Default Clip+ RB strange battery behavior

Hi guys

First Id like to thank you for all the clip support available here, great to know a lot of people still care about this evil little box

clip+ firmware: latest 01.01.18P
rockbox: latest 3.12

So I have been having some strange behavior on charging the clip+ in RB:

First time I tried to charge it while on RB I saw no info there was a charge process so I backed out, afraid I could damage the battery (did not notice any indication of a complete charging cycle even after a few hours connected to charger).
What do I do: boot the clip+ in regular firmware and charge it from there. When done I boot in RB, showing a 100% battery. I also reset the running time and top time to 0

What happens is I get a low (4-5 hours) total run time. Weird thing is RB showing as example 9% battery (and warning) but if I boot in regular samsa firmware the battery bar shows at least about 50% battery available

Saw nothing in on this issue, there was a battery drain bug but that was solved over 2 years ago on a past release

What am I doing wrong ? should I perform a complete charging cycle while on RB, is it safe ?
