    Welcome to the forums.
    The battery may possibly be going bad. Ordering a new one wouldn't be a bad idea. You can order one here: ShopAndroid - #1 Store for Android Accessories

    For the one you are currently using, I would remove it and see if you can see any bulges in the battery, look at the connection pins, etc. If that all seems good, I would turn off the phone and let it completely charge while off, and see what happens.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    And in 5 seconds more, does it come back to 95%? Then the battery has a dendrite. It's a manufacturing defect (but try to get them to replace it under the "manufacturing defects" warranty).

    Does it come back to 5% and stay there, or drop lower? It's either a bad battery, or something in the phone is shorting, killing the battery very quickly. (Only monitoring the current drain at the battery terminals over a few of these cycles will determine which.) But you can get a couple of new batteries and a charger from some Amazon partners for bout $15 for the package.
