    Powered off phone at 19% The following morning plugged it in for just over a hour. The battery meter popped up to indicate it was charging. When I powered up my phone my battery was at 5%. Seems like the battery lost charge even though it was charging. Has happened in the past but has been occurring again recently. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I would try a hard reset by holding the volume down and power button for 10 seconds and let the phone reboot.

    After it is back up power down the phone again and try charging. And yo are doing a full Power Off not just sleep mode correct?

    Yes it was power off, not sleep. I did a hard reset yesterday but I charged with the phone on today. I'll do another hard reset and charge with power off tonight.

    I don't like the straight drop offs on the graph. USB(micro) are supposed to work for 10,000 cycles, not say they don't make a lemon or two. I'm leaning battery.

    Did you do a simulated battery pull?

    The problem with USB cables are that the standard ( big end) is only good for a lot less cycles (plugging in and unplugging) than the mini and micro plugs by 100:1.
