Nokia says it will soon issue two scheduled updates for the Lumia 800 that address power efficiency
Nokia has two scheduled updates in store for the Lumia 800, though. The first one is to come in about 2 weeks, and will enhance the power efficiency of the handset further, optimizing the phone post-launch.
The second is apparently due to arrive in January, and allow for rapid charging of the full 1450mAh capacity of the battery, which is now seemingly limited to 1300mAh for some reason:
Teething problems are to be expected with a totally new handset, especially when the 180 turn of Nokia to make Windows Phones is considered, but the Finns better be addressing any issues quickly if we are to experience Microsoft's mobile OS truly becoming the third major platform.

Nice, Nokia should add more OS like bada, Android and other to its lineup of phones in order to succeed, look @ samsung,lg,htc companies that where no were close to nokia 5-6years ago.

Looks like the iphone 4s is not the only one having battery issues...I just hope Nokia fix that issue. I like the Lumia 800.

most of nowadays phones have this kind of issue. It's something normal in android's world too

No, it's not normal that battery is drained in one hour of using. It's a serious issue.
But let's hope Nokia will fix it soon, I like Lumia 800 too ;|

A bit of a Fake. By no mean you can tweak the capacity of a battery by changing its charge voltage. Furthermore, Li-ion battery technology is rather hazardous. If you exceed a +/-0,05v tolerancy on the nominal charge voltage the battery would be highly damaged. To some extent you could even explode it. Litteraly.
