Hi, just like to share my experience with you guys. I encountered the same problem as mentioned, especially the sudden request to shut down due to battery becoming 3%, although it has 50% left. I tried recharging a few times but the same thing happens, something, it will shut down at 30% battery power level. Then, one afternoon, while I was looking at my pictures (at Gallery), I saw duplication of my photos (3 times) that appeared on my gallery folder. But the key issue is I stored all these pictures (taken by camera or by transfer from PC) in the microSD card (8GB). I tried to do a deletion on the addition pictures (it showed 3, so I tried to delete 2). But to no avail, and the system keep processing even though I tried stopping it. After about 2 minutes, the promot came up, requesting me to do a shut down saying the battery level was low, although I have about 50% battery power left. So, I shut down the tab immediately and removed the microSD card. After that, I switched on the tab and it says 50% power left. But I have to make sure it is possible to utilize the tab until it drains out the battery. Finally, I managed to cross the 20% power level and the tab can still be used
I was curious about my microSD card, thinking that it may be faulty. I used a pc to open up the content and I discovered the SD card has no problem at all, it didn't have duplication when viewed from the pc. For your information, I have installed "angry bird" onto the 8GB microSD card, I am not sure if it is causing any problem to the tab or draining power from it, because the download (from Goggle market) mentioned something about "preventing phone from sleeping - System tools". I am not sure how this is link to the duplication of the pictures in the gallery folder as well, but I am glad I have found the fault to the draining of the power by the tab.
I would suggest, before anyone proceed with the factory reset, do a check on your storage card or the apps that you have installed in your tab, try to solve the simple way and it can save us a lot of troubles
I hope it helps............
