    Could be a faulty sensor in the 8320 causing it. If the battery is showing fine in another device, I would try another battery in the 8320 to determine if it really is a faulty sensor. Another thing to check is that it is actually charging when you plug it in. My old 8120 would sometimes just quit charging even though it was plugged in. Several times I woke up to a dead battery because of that.

    it looks like your only option is to buy a charging dock and charge that way.. looks like a hardware problem

    Normally I would say to replace the battery, however you said it worked fine in another device. In my opinion, send the device into RIM and have them warranty it. If it is a bad battery, easy to replace and if it's a bad sensor, well, let them honor their warranty.
