Last night I put my phone to bed (lol) with over 65% battery, and as per usual, my low battery warning beeps woke me up before my alarm did!!

Reached over and the phone was at 1% battery level!!!!

Here are a few screenshots of my setup.

Can anyone help me find out what the problem is, or should I use it as a rugby ball and kick it into the stratosphere?

cheers
Matt

Nah, got no dodgy apps installed.

Did a complete reinstall of the Rom with full wipe etc too.....still the same happens.

I can put the phone by side of bed at 60% battery, then i'm .literally woke up by the damn thing beeping at me tell me there is like, 1-5% left !

frustrating

oh dear, maybe its battery dying, lithiums don't like being discharged down so low, 10%~ is a danger zone for battery and recharge cycle,
lower the % goes, the shorter the life of the battery gets and less recharge cycles you get

only logical thing i can think of
