I ordered a new OEM battery. Replaced the original. The phone charges normally to 100%, but during use it gets to 20% and shuts off due to low power. Just shuts down. You have to plug it in for about 5 mins before you can even turn it on again. when it comes on it is at 1%. I went back to the provider and complained that he sent me a bum battery....they sent me another....same issue! So I think its a calibration problem.

Anyone have ideas?

I don't think its a knock off. Vendor has also been great in replacing.

The only reference I can find to xperia battery recalibration are steps that are for versions with removable batteries or steps that don't work on the ZL (one set of actions including holding the power button and up volume for 10 secs where there is no response from the phone)

Do you know of any process for ZL that is not root required?

These 100% OEM batteries you see selling on Ebay are 99.9% fake.... its luck if you get them to work and if you do, be glad if you get more than a month out of it.... Get a proper battery from Sony... Ebay is good for a lot of things.... batteries are not one of those things, been there done that lol

i have the same problem as yours,100% same but it happened to me after installing custom rom on android 4.3..
battery jump from 20% to 0% immediately.. with no mercy, phone shuts off at any cost and start again at 1% after turned on and charged.
i still use the original battery (not replaced it yet) and in battery health test said it's good, no need to replace it.
now i'm trying to find the fix by myself.. maybe i have messed up something with my phone..
