    If you do that regularly, considering that the battery is probably more than a year old, you're very lucky. It should have gone bad in about 6-7 months. NEVER let it drop below 40% if possible. (50% gives you the best life.) If you need more charge than that, spend the $13 for a spare battery and charger.

    also, if i'm charging my phone and using it the battery wont charge it will go down instead.
    Also a sign of a battery at the end of its life. It can also happen with a good battery if the phone is using more than it's drawing to charge. (The Note 3 draws 450mA from a USB port or car charger, and 1,200mA from the stock charger with the stock cable. So if it's using 500mA, because you're playing some game with lots of heavy graphics, and charging by USB, you're discharging 50mA every hour.)

    I had the same issue with my S3. I thought it was the battery, but it was the charger itself - at least switching to another charger helped. I now use a Note 3 charger and everything is back to normal.
