    I have 5 batteries for my LG V20. Every time I charge a battery in the cradle now, it never gets to 100%. The cradle green light comes on indicating that the battery is fully charged but when I insert them into the phone, I get to 85-90%. Leaving them in the cradle longer doesn't make it better and I can only get to 100% if I charge a battery in the phone. Is this a cradle issue or is it a battery issue due to being charged too often?

    That is likely by design to keep from overcharging the batteries and consequently killing them.

    Not sure I agree. I used to get 98-100% from the cradle. I think the batteries are just getting old. This is a new issue after 2 years of charging.

    That's definitely a possibility. The boot up process can easily drain that much from a battery (because you're swapping after using the cradle) if it's starting to go bad. Once fully running, does it seem to drain fast as well?

    Mine has always been like that.

    Yes. They go from 95% to 80% very fast. Two years is about as long as I expected them to last. I try not to use the same batteries over and over again. Of the 5 batteries, 1 lasts 2 hours of use. The other 4 lasts 5-6 hours of normal use. I have 6 more months to pay on this phone and will limp along thru the Summer and then hope reasonably priced 5G phones come out in the Fall. I am still happy to go from 10% to 90% within one minute of swapping phones. During a recent weekend in NYC, 3 batteries got me thru 12 hours of use without a need to charge in an outlet or battery pack. We V20 owners are very lucky!
