Sudden Dead Battery Indication
Okay, so this was extremely weird and I'm not sure if anyone has ever seen this happen with their Droid's. I searched the forums and didn't see anything about this, so here goes.
I always fully charge my phone before work or going out. I went to go to work the other day(mind you, with a fully charged phone). I had the phone in my pocket, on vibrate. On break I pulled the phone out of my pocket, and suddenly I see the "Less than 5% battery life remaining" notification, and the battery is in the red. I immediately thought something was wrong. But when I shut the phone off and turned it back on, it was back to showing full battery.
I thought it might have been a one time thing, but the same exact thing happened to me yesterday. Has anyone else heard of this happening? It's weird.

I'm glad mine isn't an isolated incident then, because it had me pretty freaked out when it happened..and even more freaked out the second time it happened.

Exact same thing happened to me the first month that I had my Droid. I think I even posted about it when it happened. I think it is a temperature related problem. I had been outside using the Droid in cold weather. When I got into my car to recharge, it was back to 90%.

Mine does it regardless. Much worse with the Seidio Extended battery for sure tho. Just sorta odd. I can live with it. Just end up cycling phone off and on a couple times a day... At least I don't have to pull the battery like certain phones, haha...

It happened to me for the first time on Saturday. I had had it out of the charger for about two hours, and got a "battery less than 5%" message. I turned the Droid off, turned it right back on again, and the battery level was back to 100% (or over 90%, it obviously couldn't have been at 100% after being out of the charger for two hours).

I've had it happen while on the charger. Woke up one morning to a red LED and when I took it off the dock to figure out what it was, the warning message was there as soon as the dock app closed. Looked around a bit and put it back on the dock and the LED went out right away.
I've also had it happen a few times during the day and the off/on trick has worked every time.

Yep, it's happened to me as well, don't think it is a temperature related problem. I've had it happen while plugged in and just in regular use, but it seems to go away when you turn it on and off or put back on the charger for a minute. Weird, but we can all hope it will be fixed when 2.1 arrives, when it arrives. . . .
