Hi,
KatKiss KitKat v33 user. Loving the ROM. But recently my dock battery is going from 100% down to 0% in just minutes of use and from 0% to 100% charged in just minutes too. It previously worked great. Tablet and dock are about 3 years old. I've stayed away from depleting the batteries. I've tried flashing (wiping too) the ROM again without resolving the issue. I'm currently trying a trickle charge but don't expect success there either.

Am I missing something obvious or is this just your typical dead battery?

Sounds like end of the batteries life if you've 100% wiped and re-flashed everything

Can't remember off hand but I feel as if there is a Wipe battery stats option in TWRP you could try

Just had a look through TWRP and didn't see anything related to resetting the battery. 😕😬

I'll see how the trickle charge works.

Hmm, just checked and can't see it either, was sure Id seen it somewhere

There is a way to do it, maybe it's not built in and needs doing from terminal or a flashable zip

If I work it out i`ll let you know

EDIT - Looks like this does the same thing

Let it trickle charge overnight and then charged with the asus charger this morning and it seems to be discharging normally (if quicker) now. Will have a look at that app, though.
