Do you mean that after plugging it in, the battery charge will continue 
to drop until below 10% but then it starts charging and goes to 100% 
without problems?  (What would happen now if you unplug and re-plug at 
50%?)  Or by saying that it won't charge under 10%, do you mean that it 
also never exceeds that?  If so, I think your battery has gotten old.  
This is what happened when my batteries got old.
