This happened to me previously with i9003.
Actually with i9003 everytime i flashed my device the battery would show a lower value each time.
Also; with i9003 i used Custom Roms; and used to " Erase Battery Stats "; wich such erase seemed to be the problem.
Since i've never erased my stats (to keep my device as close to factory as possible); what could be causing this issue?
Any experts on this matter that can provide me accurate info?
Thanks in advance.
The first thing that must be checked here is that wall charger and usb cables are not at fault. It maybe a coincidence that happened at the same time you started flashing stock firmware.
2nd depends on the firmware which you have chosen,
Different firmwares have different ways of working. Some have blocking modes, some have power saving modes, different set of features, different bugs as well too.
It might be a glitch altogether as well.
Nobody can explain this exactly accurate unless you try these options. Mine aee just aimed at pointing you to the right direction.

One more point, tried discharging it completely? Then charging it in offline/online mode?
Now what about battery stats?
Erasing battery stats, well if you have searched on google about it, you would have seen mixed comments about it's affecting battery life, some says it does help, some says it doesn't.
Some feels It's better to do it and
some prefer better to leave it untouched.
My experience on same issue
I had 2 same sduos devices.
on both I used to flash roms
Custom, stock, everything.
Only difference was, on first one, I did erase battery stats many times.
And the second one I didn't ever touched it.
Result-well the first one, I got 4 other batteries replaced for it, and even the new ones would have trouble keeping the charge on the device after I wiped the battery stats. I couldn't blame the battery stockist for giving me 4 faulty batteries. Battery levels were erratic on stock, on custom.
Second one seems working pretty much nicely and i still haven't replaced the original one. Although on this, sometimes I have a glitch, where battery level would drastically go down after restarting the device and slowly build up to the same level without charging.
I know it's a glitch coming from the custom kernel side. Altogether it's better this way.
