    Welcome to Android Central! I agree with mustang7757, that sounds like a failing battery. Which phone do you have? Does it have a user-removable battery? If so, simply try a new or different battery. Otherwise, you'd have to bring it to a repair shop for battery replacement.

    It's called a dendrite in the battery - it's developing at 40%. As @B. Diddy said, there's nothing you can do about it but replace the battery. (The auto industry has spent billions on curing that, so we can use lithium batteries in cars, because a battery can start throwing a dendrite a day or two after you start using it, and car manufacturers don't like the expense of $5,000 every time one fails. [And the replacement can fail in a few days too. It could cost them $100,000 in under-warranty repairs for a $15,000 car.] They don't have a definitive answer yet.)

    Welcome to the forums. Which phone do you have? Since you posted on the Android 5 forum I suppose it's an older device. My bet is that the battery is pretty much gone and you need to replace it.

    That's almost definitely a dendrite growing at 46%, and a thick enough one to totally kill the battery. As Javier said, you have to have the battery replaced.

    C'mon, you can think non-linearly.

    Oh, I not only think non-linearly, I correct things - but this is just too much of a mess to try. (I'd need access to the database to modify the dates so that everything would line up. The threads were started 2 days apart. [I've run worse forums than this, and I'm fluent in SQL, so it wouldn't bother me, but I just don't have access to the site.])

    Ok, in the future for situations like this, I'll consider redirecting and closing one of the threads instead.

    If you're still following (ahh, heck - @B. Diddy) I don't mind trying to follow out of order posts. (And maybe someone up in the ivory tower will realize that I can be of more use to the forum if I can access the database - I'm sure MySQL is available on the server. If I can force-feed passwords into my own site, I can change posting dates on this one.)

    I recall seeing one of the other Mods talking about reordering posts in a thread, but I'm not sure if they actually found a way. I'll look into that more.
