For some reason my battery is consistently dying when the OS still notifies 15% remaining. I'm running the official CM11 nightlies 4/8, dalvik runtime, KT747 kernel. When it dies I plug in and it will say 0% again when I turn it back on.

Is there any standard procedure for this? Any tips on what I can do?

How old is your battery?

You probably need a new one.

I have the same issue on my Nook Tablet. Running CM11 too. If it get's close to 15% it just dies sometimes. I think it's an android thing not hardware related. At least the CPU-z app shows my battery as healthy.

This happens with my S3 as well, and I resolved it by getting a different battery. I bought a couple different batteries to make sure it wasn't hardware/software related, and could only replicate said issue with my original “old" battery.
