    Recently bought a new battery from eBay. Well, the moment I charged it and it went 100% in a matter of one hours I thought something was wrong with it. Then it would drop 1% every 2 minutes. I concluded it was a counterfeit.

    The problem is that now, when I switch the battery, the percentage showing on the mobile is the same. Like the data is locked on the phone. And it drops a lot, no matter if I try the old original battery or the new one. Any hints? I am truly puzzled.

    Does the percentage fall with no use of the phone?

    When you change batteries, does the percentage change after a Power Off & Restart?

    hey drop when it's idle, yes, perhaps not as fast. But the intriguing thing is the way the percentage is bond to the phone, no matter which battery I insert.

    The percentage does not change after power of and on, even if I switch the batteries. It goes on dropping too fast after that.

    I'm sorry, I can't think of any explanation. I wonder whether a Cache Partition wipe would help, or even a Factory Reset?

    I am now in the process of calibrating the counterfeit battery and will do the same with the other next and see from there. It's truly intriguing.

    It goes on. It's like one battery - the good one - decided to mimic the bad one. When I switch them, the percentage available of the bad one stays, and the behavior of the good one is now similar to the bad one. Drops really fast.
