    Like all the other battery problem posts, I'm going to suggest that the battery may be failing. Take the battery out, place it on a flat surface and try to spin it. If it's bulging it'll spin easily. That's the sign of a dying battery.

    Try the spin test, if the battery is swollen it will spin like a top. If it does you need a new battery.

    Probably a bad battery.
    Do the spin test to make sure.
    The same thing happened to me in February, basically it seems like the battery meter isn't working, but its the battery.
    Go ahead an order a more powerful battery, rather than stock, you won't regret it.
    I have a slim 2000mah bat and can go all day (5:40am - 7pm) in a poor service area and still have over 30% left with no battery savers & power saving mode off.
