IPhone :: Battery Dead Within 3 Hours While Charged It Up

I'm having some rather serious problems with my phone which started on Friday. My phone was sitting at a healthy battery rate (didn't have % on at that point) then I went to use it and it was dead. I've NEVER had an iphone die on me. Not even after heavy usage. So I charged it up, noticed the new 3.1.2 update and applied that with a hope that it would resolve the issue.
On Saturday I made a 2min phone called and use the browser for about 10-15mins tops. In 3hours the battery had "died", it flashed up 20% battery remaining then 9mins later 10% then 40mins later it was dead. I couldn't get to a charger then randomly 4hours later the phone turned back on with over 50% battery and lasted another 2hours, it didn't even go near a charger.

Sunday, pretty much the same, was at 46% then randomly died on me. Monday can't really remember. Tuesday the phone lasted about 3hours again. Today it's not been "too" bad. but i put the phone on charge in the car today and the battery went from 26% straight to 66% just by plugging it in. Took it off charge and went down to 54%. Went to use the phone this evening to see it at 9% in less than 20secs it went from 9% to 6% to 3% to dead. My problem is, I'm in the UK, the phones from Australia, this phones not even 6 weeks old. Obviously Apple won't touch it.Does this sound like battery or something more complex?

IPhone :: Dead Battery Screen When Fully Charged
So I surfed through these forums and didn't seem to find anyone with my specific problem.I have an iPhone 3G I bought back in September 2008 or so (actually I bought one in August but it was defective by September so I had to get a replacement). Anyway, recently it has been acting a bit strange.

I'll be texting some friends or whatever on the phone when all of a sudden it displays the dead battery image and the screen goes blank. It's not off however. When I click the power button once it goes right back to the "unlock" screen as it should. Once I unlock however, my AT&T service is completely gone for about 5 seconds. Then all of a sudden a couple of backed up text messages show up.

Has anyone had this problem? I'm worried about bringing it in to the Apple store because it doesn't happen TOO often so I doubt I'd be able to prove anything is actually wrong...

IPhone :: Reporting Dead Battery Despite Being Fully Charged
I've been having a recurring problem with my iPhone as of late. I'll attempt to turn on my phone only to see it reporting a dead battery. Several hours later, when I again attempt to turn on the phone, it successfully powers on and reports a full battery. This is happen several times and is getting quite frustrating. I've attempted restoring the phone and turning off all push/seek services. It is a 3GS with the most recent firmware version.

Nokia :: E51 - Eating Battery - Fully Charged Battery Is Barely Lasting 6 Hours
my E51 is about 1 year old and has suddendly started eating up battery ...a fully charged battery is barely lasting 6 hours if I have it on silent with no vibrate, the light settings at the lowest possible and only use it for SMS. I have tried restoring the factory settings, changing the battery, updating the software but still have this problem. Can anyone help? I really like this phone but i can go on carrying my charger everywhere and pluging it in whenever there is a socket in sight just to keep it going.

BB Curve :: Fully Charged Battery But It Is Showing Dead
I have a BB Curve 8302. Yesterday the battery depleted unusually fast (with in about 2-3 hrs with hardly any use). I put it on the charger for about 3hrs. Still showed the battery symbol (top left) as dead. And the words low battery below the clock. I left it charge over night. Still same thing. I put the battery into a friends 8320 & it showed fully charged no problem at all. I can access the phone if I have it plugged into the computer or charger. But the moment I disconnect it says something along the lines of "battery drained powering down". And it turns off my phone. So I have discovered there wasn't anything wrong with the battery. So is there something wrong with the phone? Or is there something wrong with the firmware? Even when I go to the wrench Icon & check battery level from there, it say 0% for charged. What can I do?

Nokia :: 5300 Battery Duration - Charge Last Only 4 Hours After Being Fully Charged
I'm the proud owner of a Nokia 5300, its a new phone that I bought a month ago. A few weeks after the purchase the phone started acting wierd, turning on and off at will, vibrating on its own without calls or msgs incoming, and other weird stuff. I visited the local nokia aproved repair center and they took the phone in for 7 days, solve the software problem. However now the phone charge last only 4 hours after being fully charged.

I took the phone to the repair center again and they gave me a new battery, the phone still suck the power in 4 hours. I took the phone to the repair center again and they took it in for 4 days, they returned it to me stating that the problem was solved. But it still suck the power in less than 4 hours.The phone's temperature rises without it being un use. I tried changin the memory card without any luck...

BB Tour 9630 :: Battery Life Down To 2 Bars Only 3 Hours After Being Fully Charged?
I sent a few text messages from work and just adjusted some settings, but wasn't actually browsing the internet (although i think the browser was left open). It went from 90% charged to only 2 bars, in a span of less then 3 hours just from no more than 5 texts?

Am I doing something wrong here? I just put the thing in the pocket and lock the keys when I'm not using it, and I have the backlight to time out after 10 seconds.

Nokia :: Battery Is Dead Within Six Seven Hours - No Apps Running
I'm not sure if this has been posted already (apologies if so in advance), but I'm continually coming across the same issue with the battery. It is as follows:I come home from work in the evening and charge the device. The battery fully charges within a few hours and I go to bed.I get up maybe six or seven hours later and the device is completely dead - the battery is dead!

If that wasn't strange enough, every other morning I wake-up and the device is fully charged (still from the night before)?I have absolutely nothing running; I never use the caleandar and I've been a faithful user of Nokia N - devices for the best part of five years now, so I know to turn off everything in order to save battery charge.

BB Storm 9500 :: Battery Dead In 4 Hours After Update To V4.7.0.148
Realized the other battery thread was marked solved after I responded to it so figured I better copy my post to a new thread.

I've had my Storm since just after the first of the year. Never a battery drain problem. The phone would go from 1-2 days without recharging under what I would call standard usage. i.e. no heavy apps or browsing.

About 4 weeks ago I dl'd the update to v4.7.0.148 (platform my Storm barely makes it 4 hours withminimal usage before the battery is completely drained. (example: this morning I turned my fully charged phone on ay 6 am. Checked some mail and read the news headlines. Maybe ten minutes usage. Put in standby in its magnet clip thingamajig. Took two calls. 5 minutes max each. The phone was dead at 11:30.

I didn't use to worry about closing apps (why isn't there a "close all" app button?). Now I'm super vigilant to close all appsas I back out.Bluetooth is turned off.GPS is disabled.

I went by a Verizon store last week during a business trip and they replaced the battery.Still no joy.I like the phone. It does more than I'll ever need a phone to do BUT I can't afford to continue topay hundreds of dollars a month forphone service when I have to constantly look for outlets to use tocharge up or that shuts off in the middle of a conversation with a clientabout a multi-million dollar sale.

IPhone :: Low Battery Screen When Battery Is Fully Charged
My phone has started displaying the low battery screen, and refusing to do anything, after being unplugged from the charger for a few hours. The battery is fully charged, but after only 1-2 hours, the phone starts to display that warning screen and going back off. Sometimes, if you push the home key as soon as the warning screen goes off, it will come up normally. Sometimes, it won't. I believe this all started (along with the texting issues several other people have had) after the last update, I believe it is 2.2.1. I have drained the battery and restored, I have reset the settings at least twice, I have forced a restart.

IPhone :: Battery Hot But Not Fully Charged
This morning I woke up to a hot iphone. I left it charging over night but when I looked at the battery bar, it wasn't fully charged and the phone itself felt pretty hot. I unplugged it to let it cool off while getting ready for work and plugged it back in and started charging and stopped heating up. is there something wrong with the battery for me to bring it in? or some glitch? any known issue?

IPhone :: 3GS - Powered Down On Its Own / Battery Well Charged
I was doing something with it (not plugged in) and it powered down on its own. It would not respond to a soft or hard reset (holding home and sleep button). I plugged it into the charger and the battery logo with the lightening bolt showed up. For a good 2 or 3 minutes it was unresponsive until it finally responded to the sleep button power up. It boot up and what to you know? It shows 87% battery life like it should be.

I figured I had done something quirky and I would figure out what I did as I learned the phone better. Well I never did figure it out. Two months later, today, it did it again. I was in the middle of the Maps app and all of a sudden the circular loading splash popped up and it shut down. It did the exact same thing as before.

IPhone :: 3Gs Charged Battery Life
I've got this issue with my iphone 3Gs which I purchased in July in New Zealand where it seemed to behave as expected regarding the battery charging and its life with an average daily use. Then I went in US in semptember and having forgotten the wall charger I bought a new one (universal with all the differnt plugs) from SF apple store. Charged the phone and surprisingly the iPhone charge lasted less than a day with lil or no use. I kept charging it continuosly till i went back to New Zealand and once there the phone went back to its original behavior. Now I left new zealand and back to italy and i am experiencing again the same battery behaviour using the wall charger.
This is my first iPhone and honestly dont know much but i am finding this behaviour quite strange. Has anybody experience the same while traveling in different countries? is it a power/voltage issue or is just my iPhone faulty?one thing i notice while in Us or in Italy is that it charges very quickly as die as well as quick whereas in Nz it seemed to take longer to charge(wall charger).
any tip/suggestion would be greately appreciated.

IPhone :: 3GS - Battery Doesn't Get Charged Properly
Earlier today I remember seeing my battery at 62% about 15 minutes later when I checked again, it was off, trying to turn it on gave me the beginnings of a boot up sequence but stop nearly after the screen flickered. Follow up attempts only gave me the empty battery icon. Plugging it in to any source with different cables also failed to put a charge in it, all I see is the big empty battery icon. Putting under restore mode and doing a clean FW install gives me an error #1601.

It has now come on but the battery life indicator is all over the place. 60% then 89% the next minute. 5 minutes later it's 32%

Is this battery problem or software problem?
