I'm running Beanstalk rom 3-25-2014. I was on the previous version prior to that and dealing with random reboots all day. After a full reset and an updated rom version, I am no longer experiencing random reboots. However, after my battery drains down past 50%, if I reboot my phone then it shows 22% or sometimes less. Just wondering what's going on.

Did you do a clean install on the update?

Also try fully draining your battery to calibrate it. 100->0 and back to 100

Please don't fully drain your battery (down below 5%) - it is among the worst (normal) things to do to your battery. Well, tossing your battery into a fire would be worse, hence the "normal" qualifier.

Thanks guys. I did do a clean wipe. I haven't had to "drain" the battery down to 0 because its doing a pretty good job by itself. The only thing I can think of is that I have double tap to wake and double tap to sleep (on the notification bar) activated as well as active display. I know that stuff drains the battery more but I don't see how that justifies losing 30-40% on a reboot though. I've ordered a Mugen 3000 mAh battery case so maybe that'll help me get through the day.
