    Default Battery goes from 45% to full charge in secs!?

    I posted a bit ago that I was using my phone and it had more than 1/4 battery left and it suddenly shut off from drained battery only to charge it and have it act normal . Well, just a bit ago I was charging my phone ( it was at 45%)and I shut it off n turned it back on and the battery was fully charge. What's going on here ? Any ideas

    I've also experienced this issue twice with my phone. I have to restart the phone a few more times before it starts showing the correct battery information. Right now it's working correctly.

    let the battery run down to the point the phone shuts off. While its off plug in the charger. When its done charging leave it plugged in and power it on, allow to sit for another 20 minutes or so then unplug and use..
    This will calibrate it. By letting it run completely down it now has a zero starting point.

    If you dont let it run completely down over time it forgets where zero is.

    I found this work, when u turn the phone off to charge unplug it then shut it off or never plug it in then shut it off. For some reason it jumps the percentage. Also, unplug the phone then power on. It'll drop by a percent but u can always plug it back in once u hit the lock screen.

    do i do this every single time i charge it ? These newer phones have batteries that are true to What They say. So 100% is 100%.

    Not every time, but once every couple of months is good.

    I'm almost positive this information is not true.

    The gist of it is the same for all electronic devices with Lithium Ion batteries. Having owned 3 generations of iPhone and iPad each, it does calibrate it to an extent.

    But for what were talking about, calibrating every month or so, its fine.
    Bump charging daily or several times a week is not recommended.

    IT works for me. So im almost positive the information is true.
    It also looks like its worked for a few other people.. so the proverbial dont take my word for it seems to apply rather well here.
