Default Battery problems.....but different this time.

OK, instead of getting an extended battery for my TB, i decided to get another standard battery and an external charger so i could just switch em out when one died (I didn't want the bulge). I've been doing so for several months with no problem other than the external charger only getting the battery up to 98%, which was not really an issue.

But recently I have had some issues that i really need help with, First, after beig charged all night, (100% on my phone being plugged in) it. will start to drain extremely fast. This is at home where I only use wifi not 3 or 4g (don't have 4g here anyway) I have power saver set for 20 percent and that's when I would usually change batteries. I get there crazy fast. At first I just thought it was just the one, but they both do it. Also if I plug it in when it's almost dead (under 20% or so) the next time I turn on the screet it says 100%! But it drains just as fast still.

Is it possible that the costant battery switching messed up the phone? I didn't think that would happen. I could make it from 7am to around 2 to 5pm, depending on use, before i had to switch.

Or is it that both batteries have crapped out at the same time and i need to get new ones?

Thanks to anybody that can help
