    Default Strange battery issue

    So I unplug my phone around 6:15am every day, and with light use, I typically can go til around 5pm, and by then the battery is around 35-45%.

    Today, I had typical light use, except for sending an attachment via an Outlook e-mail.

    By around 3pm, I looked at my phone and it was 7%. I got in my car and drove, and after about 5 minutes on the charger and very little use, it actually DROPPED to 6%! I checked the battery usage, and there was some service or application that was literally nameless, that was taking up around 15% of my battery. I force stopped it, and after that I rebooted the phone. RIGHT after the reboot, the phone showed I had 19% battery left!

    How can a phone show 6% battery left, and then after a reboot (which consumes quite a bit of battery itself) show 19%? This isn't the first time this has happened.

    Could it be a fault battery, and the phone can't get a true battery life reading from the battery?

    Wow, 229 views and no one has a word to say about it? Someone has to have had something similar happen, and wondered the same thing.

    Do you have any task killers or anything like that running (Juice Defender does count)?

    I know if I use the micro charger from my rumor touch it charges it up 91-93 percent and says fully charged and one time it only went to 85
