Hello

I have a problem. when i recharge my phone from 1% to 39% without using the phone. it just stop recharging and discharge instead.. to 36% . i rebooted the phone to restart recharging and i lost -14% so it have 22% left. when my battery got 50% and i reboot one more. the battery got glitched and get +30% more power so it have 80%. i don't know what's going on with the battery. my phone is rooted and i lost warranty... what to do?

normally the battery should not give itself 20-30% more power or lose power when reboot.

UPDATE: My battery is a little bit swollen now. i'm gonna to buy the new battery.

sounds like it's time for a battery replacement to me. something similar happened to me about 6 months ago and a new battery fixed it

You could also find yourself some batteries on Ebay. Found mine on it, it's been working perfectly ever since. Don't wait until some kind of accident happens.

No no I don't trust Ebay. they can have fake things, like fake china iphone, fake china galaxy, etc. i will buy the original battery in my local store mytrendyphone.dk

That's right, there are a few original ones on EBay. But I think if you want the smallest chance on a fake battery, you better look at the phone stores themself.

You can buy a 1700mah battery from the Galaxy Ace II. That's what I have and no complaints so far

You're absolutely right. There's always a risk with fake items on Ebay. I've been a lucky customer so far i guess
