    Hello all, my droid 2 global that is about 2 weeks old does not charge if the battery falls bellow 20%. I then have to turn it off for it to charge up.

    I went to my local Vzw store and they install a task killer, which did not help. I went back a second time, and they did a factory reboot, which as of last i was down to 5% I plugged in the phone about midnight, and got up at 4 AM and had only 40%.

    Is this phone a dud and needs to be replaced?

    Remove the task killer. I have no idea why Verizon would even let employees do that.

    Anyways, the phone sounds like a dud to me. I would ask for a replacement.

    I agree with ExodusC, remove the taskiller, they are a waste. My girlfriends old Eris, was always running slow, and we took it to VZW, and they said to install one, and guess what, it didnt help at all. needless to say we trashed the phone. Call VZW and ask for a replacement; also ask for a supervisor, it will get you further, just try not to yell alot.. just be nice :) lol i know that not needed but ive seen it has helped me in the past

    Sounds like your charger isn't good. Make sure you charge off a wall charger that provides at least 850mA current. Most generic chargers provide 300mA or less which will result in very slow charging/inability to charge the phone at all.

    Could it be an app causing the issue? This issue happens rooted or uprooted. I had the the cyanogen 7, so last night I decide to go back to the stock setup.

    I let the phone get down to 5% around 1 AM went to bed, got up and all was well. Today.

    If you read the CM7 Beta thread on RootzWiki you'll notice that it is stated, "Abnormally Short Battery"

    Like I said the problem happened before I rooted, and persisted after I rooted. So I reverted back to the stock setup, and it did not happen last night, so I think the problem could just be an app.
