    Can someone help me out? I've been looking for solutions to my problem but have found none so far. A while ago I calibrated my LG-MS910 maybe 2 or 3 times because my battery reader wasn't accurate but I'm still seeing problems with that. I've attached a picture of my battery use and there you can see that the battery constantly shoots up and down with no in-between.

    That is strange....

    Have you tried any other battery reader such as Gsam? Have you tried a new battery?

    I'm not sure it's the battery meter going whacky. Voltages can be pulled down pretty hard under high current draw. Looking at your screen I see periods of low signal which can put a heavy load on the battery while the phone is trying to get and maintain a connection with a tower.

    Look at my blow-up of your screen shot and note the color beaks in yellow indicating the signal level. When power appears to take plunges, the color bar changes color to show a low signal.

    I've tried other battery readers and they always show the same thing on my phone's battery reader, and I doubt the battery can actually go from 45% to 17% in one reboot and then 5% to 60% in a 10-minute charge...
