Worked like a charm
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, After 3 weeks of trying various different battery calibrations, from various sources, I just happened on your page, and it worked
it still randomly turned off today, but at least it's staying on for longer than it did before. I have however still ordered a new battery as it's like 5 years, and many custom rom changes over the years I have also bookmarked this for future use

Mucho appreciation

You need to be rooted :
1) drain your battery completed until the tab shuts down
2) charge your tab ( with the tab OFF ) completely
3) turn the tab ON (still with the charger connected ) and run Root Explorer
4) go to : /data/system/batterystats.bin and delete batterystats.bin
5) turn the tab OFF
6) disconnect from the charger
7) turn the tab ON
DONE !

If you do not have Root Explorer you can use the Terminal app of your choice :
1) drain your battery completed until the tab shuts down
2) charge your tab ( with the tab OFF ) completely
3) turn the tab ON (still with the charger connected ) and run the Terminal App
4) type the command : rm /data/system/batterystats.bin
5) turn the tab OFF
6) disconnect from the charger
7) turn the tab ON
DONE !
