HTC One M9 :: Why Does Phone Battery Level Decrease While Charging
Aug 10, 2015
The battery level often drops while charging. For example, it was 30% when I began to charge it. It reached 80% 20 hours later. I continue to charge it. 8 more hours later it became 0%. A few days ago I started at 15%, went up to 68%, then down to 11% in 30 hours of continuous charging. What is the cause of it? I just deleted many apps hoping to save the battery.
I used HTC 4g Amaze before and loved it. Then I had iPhone 6 for a couple of months, Samsung Note 4 another couple of months. I waited to get M9 believing it to be great due to my past experience with HTC. However, the problems with this new M9 are insurmountable.
My Motorola Charm's battery life went all the way to 0% because I couldn't get to my charger in time, but now everytime I try plugging it into the charger, it won't charge up. I even tried charging it for 2 days, and still the screen says 0%, and the phone won't turn on no matter what.
I owned a Tour from Sprint. I recently called Sprint because the memory in my phone will significantly decrease within a few hours of resetting it. It drops anywhere from 20MB to 30MB really quick. They sent me another phone and realized they have a disclaimer that if they don't find anything wrong with the device they might charge $75. The apps I normally run is Twitter, Facebook, Email, Memopad, Meterberry, Weatherbug, Slacker, Pandora, SMS, BBM and AppWorld. I want to ask before I switch the device is if that memory problem is normal. I'm running the last OS update from Sprint.
My phone ran out of battery completely, and turned off, like normal. However, when I plugged it into my 240v wall charger, it came up with a battery symbol and a red cross over the top, something i have never seen before. I have taken the battery out and out it back in many times now and no luck. The LED turns red for a few seconds upon inserting the charger, but goes off and will not allow me to turn the phone on as usual.I have looked at my battery and next to the gold contact plates, is a little white strip, its turned partially red. I heard somewhere that the batterys have a device to notify you if the battery has become wet.
I bought my X6 1 month ago and now it doesn't want to charge or turn on. Before this happened I was on the phone talking and I had low battery so I decided to put my charger in while I was talking. I have charged it all night and it still won't turn on.
What happened is that I kept my Moto X gen 1 phone for charging at 11 pm in the night and was supposed to remove it after an hour or so, since i anticipated that it will be fully charged by then. However, i fell asleep and then woke up at 6. As a result, my phone got OVERCHARGED for nearly 6 hours straight. And this has happened TWICE.
Though Motorola claims that the battery is "over-charge proof", i think there is a possibility that there must have been some little damage to it, since this occurred twice.
I'm a proud and happy owner of a Nexus 5, but have an odd quirk. I'm rooted with the stock ROM and Trinity Kernel (which I think may be the culprit, I'm not going to read 1,000 responses on a thread in a different forum to find out). To my problem: whenever the phone is off and plugged in my laptop's USB port or the travel/wall charger, the initial charging icon that shows the battery's level does not disappear. Even when I have unplugged the charger, the icon stays until I boot up the phone.
The problem is that my battery indicator stays full all the time. Battery life is OK (2-3 days) but is very annoying cause I don't know the battery level. It pass from max level directly to 1line and shortly the phone switch off.I tried 3 kind of firmwares (including last one 410.21.010), charging phone in different ways, different chargers, hard reset etc. and nothing.The phone is new (2 weeks of use) but no warranty.Any solution?
So, I opted to do a restore on the new iPhone 4 from a 3G running iOS4 image. Everything seems to have restored just fine but I've noticed that the battery level percentage isn't being reported on the top of the screen. I've crawled through the settings and can't find anything on changing this.Was wondering if anyone else had run into this or if I'm going to need to bite the bullet and build the phone up from scratch. To be honest this shouldn't be necessary, but could be my only option.
BTW, my reason for doing the restore is simply a matter of data. I have several apps that contain 2 or more years of information. Most have a "save/restore" feature but several don't. Even those that do have their own unique way of saving which will add time to building the new phone.
My battery level was around the 50% mark, and then I went to lok at my gallery and whilst I was viewing pics it dropped straight away to 1% and told me to charge my phone..........So I plug in the charger and it goes straight back to 47%. It has done this twice, why?
I purchased a second hand nexus 5 to find out that the battery indicator is always showing 42% and never updates, regardless of the actual battery charge level. I tried replacing the battery with the one from my brother`s nexus 5, then replaced the usb port board. Also tried:
- rooting - installing twrp 22.214.171.124 - elemenalX 6.0 kernel - Android 6.0.1 - Cache and dalvik wipe - Use the battery until phone shuts down
Although the indicator jumped to 83% and to 54% after some actions which I dont remember. Maybe after cache wipe, not sure.
Yesterday I let my battery drop to below 5% for the first time, just to see how long it would take. I noticed that as soon as the phone hit 5% it dropped the screen brightness down so dark I could barely see that it was on. When I opened the notification bar, the brightness control was gone. Plugging in the phone immediately brought it back to a usable brightness and the control returned. Is there a way to disable this?
Just yesterday when I plugged my phone into the ac adapter to charge after a while I noticed the phone was really warm, hot even, and it wasn't charging as quickly as it usually does. This morning I realized that my phone was at 70% when i had fully charged it last night and didn't really use it until that point. Around 10-15 mins later my battery life was at 60% and kept dropping around the same time to 50%. I had to keep plugging my phone in just to have a decent amount of battery life. The phone still feels hot when I have it plugged in and it doesn't seem to be charging as quickly as it should.
My observation is that REBOOT issue some how related to battery level reader s/w or something. because as soon as battery level goes below 80%(approx), device start rebooting and after some reboots it shows battery level in "red'.
Remove battery put back and 80% cases reboot cycle stops and battery level is normal. However it remains for some time only. try to make/recv call and it starts rebooting again.
my battery level drops suddenly from 15% to 1%.but when i connect to the charger it starts from 15%.did everything i can.reinstalled firmware 3 time.2 time with SEUS and one with the pc companion.went to the SE shop and changed the battery and got a new battery too, coz i had warranty. but the problem is still there since 5 months back?
I am facing a strange issue my Xperia neo is powering off the phone when battery level falls below 30%. First I thought its my oversight seeing the battery level but today again as I was typing a msg, the phone gave me warning battery level 1% and just got off. When I connected it to charnger and turned it on the battery level was indicating 28% power left. Can it be because of any application? I am using Juice defender as well.
I notice in some screen shots that people post that they have a Battery Level Indicator. I have seen these on the graphs from settings/about phone/battery usage.I don't have this indicator. The only time I see a battery level is when charging.
Not too sure why but recently my battery life on my iPhone 5 has been awful! Firstly, I noticed the battery slowly starting to get worse at first, where I would barely make it through an evening and just about keep my phone alive. I then bought a charging case to use on nights out, which soon enough seemed to not be enough to keep the phone on.Â
Now, on a daily basis my phone switches off and I have to charge it throughout the day, I turns off sometimes just suddenly at 40% battery, other times at 20% and others it quickly jumps down to 1% and turns off shortly after. Earlier today I left my office with 86% battery. Went outside to make a phone call for maximum 15 minutes and my phone had quicky reduced to 10% low battery by the end of the conversation and 1% between my walk of 3 mins to then turn off before I was back in my seat.Â
I have experienced bad battery life on my previous Iphone but nothing like this. I did, however take it into Apple and where they backed up the phone and replaced it with a brand new one, however this iPhone is not still in my warranty (not entirely sure if the previous one was either to be honest).Â
I have done all of the recent updates, I close any existing apps and am not constantly on my phone anyway.
I purchased this z2 just this december and its acting weird for a month now.. It took me awhile figuring out why the unit just shuts down even if the battery percentage was considerably high. The true percentage level only shows up after i press the little thingy on the side for reset..
Symptoms: Phone wont charge. right off the box. Says "Battery cannot be charged, please use a Sony Ericsson Battery". It is a Sony Ericsson battery. It is a Sony Ericsson charger. Everything came out of the box.
I just opened it, and first thing I did was plug it into the wall. Now, I have installed the update service, tells me phone is up to date (downloaded straight from sonyericsson.com). I have installed Phone suite 6.01; tried a repair phone, aborts with an error when it comes to the update service (right after the remove batery, press C while connecting phone part). Also same thing with car charger.
i just bought iPhone 6+ 64 GB in Thailand and transfered all my info to the new nano simcard. After 6 hr driving back to my hometown I charged my battery as it run out.Â The next day my phone signal is lost (it says "searching...") But the wifi connection is on.
I've observed my N97 mini's battery level dropping abruptly from 4 bars to 1 bar (with low battery alarm). The phone's slightly more than a month old and using the latest 11.x.x firmware. Did a bit of googling, and found several suggestions on how to save battery (turn off everything 'smart' on ur phone). That's not the point anyways. I need to find out why the battery level drops suddenly (like what happens when ur battery's dying out), and *not* why the battery lasts X hrs. I'm not sure about this, but I think this mostly happens when the battery level is slightly below max, and I use any app that needs the GPS functionality. But then, there doesn't seem to be any problem with the GPS hardware in the phone, 'coz it usually gets a GPS lock in less than a minute (mostly within seconds). Could it be related to the algo used to show the battery level, or is it that its my battery that's faulty? Any others out there having the same problem?
the indicated battery level is often incorrect. Today again the battery icon was approximatively 40% (the same value is displayed in the Settings) and shortly after, the phone goes off, the battery completely empty. I know that the 40% value shown was incorrect because the last time i charged it was more than 24 hours ago.
Is there any way or any app that will display the battery level as a percentage? I've installed battery watch but I need to open the app in order to see the info. Also is there any apps that turn off the shutter sound?
The battery level indicator is faulty from day one. It shows sufficient balance but suddenly I find the phone switches off. When I try to switch on the phone, I get a message"battery drained out"This has to be a software problem like in iPhone 4 and RIM must address it by bringing a software update.
I Bought a new Xperia mini pro about 3 weeks back and it was so cool and I had no problems up till last week. The prblem of the phone is, the battery level drops to 1% suddenly from 20%. And it says battey is 1% and it'll shut down. I didn't do anything, no rooting nothing. it is same as new. It happened about 4 times during this last week. all 4 times it dropped from 20% or 17% or something to 1%. I'm really scared about that and somebody please help me what can i do regarding that. and when i connect it to the charger following that.
I am finding very strange thing happening with my Neo V - 1254 2586 which I purchased just 2 months back. Once a battery level comes down to 20% and if i try to do something after that, then it just shows me a warning for battery low and pressing OK makes mobile getting switched off automatically. It wont get restart again until and unless I wont put it for charging. When the phone get restarted then the charging level will start charging from 20% which is quite strange. I already removed the battery, cleaned the points many time but problem didn't get resolve.
