    Severe battery issue.

    So after using my Droid X for about 30 mintues it goes down from 100% to 30%. I know im doing nothing wrong, so i was wondering if a factory reset might fix this problem.

    PS: before, it would say my phone was at like 5% and i would reboot and it would be at 60%.

    Any help is appreciated!

    sounds like how the droid is with the seidio extended battery. the phone cant recognize the charge in the battery correctly for whatever reason. not sure if theres a fix for this though..

    Let your battery cycle a few times before really judging the current draw.

    As the battery is charged and discharged it should start holding a charge better. Give it a few days and a couple of good long charges overnight.

    My first charge took about 30 minutes from 0% to 100%. Then it lasted for roughly 5 hours. Now Im on my 2nd charge. Its been on the charger for about an hour and its sitting at 50%. Give it time, Im sure youll be fine.

    Okay, thanks for the replies. Was just worried because of how severe the decrease was.

    So after about 5 or 10 minutes of charging my phone goes from 0% to 50%. :/

    Let it charge to 100%, then use it until it has around 15-20, then charge it back up

    This was exactly like my experience. I told my wife not to even bother unpacking her phone from the box. Mine left the store with 80% charge, when I got home it was at 0% but still running. I was so disgusted. But then I unpacked the wife's phone and charged it to 100% and left it on the charger overnight and her phone has been running all day today. Uptime now is 14 hours. 45 mins talking on the phone, 30 mins browsing the web and the rest stand by. It still has 60% charge it reports. We're leaving it off the charger overnight to see what we have in the morning. Her phone is straight out of the box, nothing installed or turned off / on.

    Tomorrow I'm going to test real life usage with the phone. 3 hours of phone calls 2 hours of playing around on the phone (app browsing, games, some youtube) and a total of 16 hours of unplugged time. I'm praying the phone can handle it.

    I was told by some other forums that the battery metering not reliable if you don't let it fully charge overnight for once and the 13.604 OTA update should fix this.

    Best is to let it charge overnight and you should see much better performance.

    mine was the same way, it's not that the battery isn't charged or is losing charge quickly. the phone for some reason just doesn't understand what charge level the battery is actually at and doesn't display it correctly.
