Default Battery Jump Issue

Hi Guys, I need your help to understand if anyone of you encountered the problem that I am facing now.
My phone battery is jumping up and down while discharging and charging.
I have even changed the battery but still the same situation.
Any insight will be helpful.

You are using the original charger. Don't use it.

Thumbs down Same issue here

I have the same issue.

Scenario 1:
Phone charging
battery jumps up by at least 5 - 10 %

Scenario 2:
Phone discharging
battery jumps down by 5%

Scenario 3:
Phone discharging
no reboots
battery stays at 1% for a very long time at the end of the day.

If there are no reboots involved then I would see sharp drops in the battery graph at the end of the day.

I looked into this issue and found out the battery circuit might be build poorly by LG for nexus 4.

I overcame this drain issue by:
- not looking at the graph often
- Installed custom kernel that allowed me to under clock to save battery.

If you are non-root then i would suggest letting the battery drain to the point where the phone turns off.
Then go to fastboot and let the phone drain more battery by leaving the screen ON. ( going to fastboot: 1) turn off the phone 2) press and hold the power and volume down button).
