    Default HTC EVO 4G battery suddenly shuts off out of no ware.

    About a month ago I was using my EVO with about 80% on it and out of no ware it just shut down. When I turned it back on it had 1% of battery left. I don't know why this happened with a good amount of battery left. It does this at least twice a day. And I barely use it when it does this. When it turns off it doesn't even say "shutting down" like it usually does. It just completely shuts off without notice. Is it a battery problem or what? HELP!!!!! This is really frustrating.

    THANKS!

    It does sound like a battery problem. If you're not rooted, go to a sprint store and ask them about it. Could just be a bad battery and they'll give you a new one. Usually free of charge, but be prepared to pay if you have to.

    This could be a faulty battery or a hardware problem. Without knowing if you're rooted, ROM, OS Version, there's not to much more we can help you with other than say take it to Sprint.

    Hi, I was having a similar problem with my evo4g shutting down several times a day. I am running cyanogen mod 7.2 with an extended battery. My solution was to cut several pieces of clear tape and layer them at the top inside the battery compartment to fill a small gap between the battery and and inner case. I noticed that there was too much space between the contacts and the battery. Its been Three days now with no shutting down, no re-starts, and no grief. Maybe this can help someone who has a similar problem. Happy New Year to all.

    If that's a battery fitting problem, try this aftermarket battery from Amazon. Two pack with a charger. $20 only. I have used them for more than two month. Fits tightly. Last long.
    Amazon.com: TimeTec 2*1600mAh High Capacity Li-ion Batteries For Sprint HTC EVO Shift 4G, EVO 4G, Verizon HTC Droid Incredible, HTC Hero, HTC Touch Pro 2, HTC Tilt 2, HTC Dash 3G, HTC Snap Travel External Battery+Free Bonus TimeTec Multi-purpose USB

    Hope it help!
