Default How do you know when your battery is giving up?

Twice today, I've had my battery "crash" from about 20% to showing 1% after the phone automatically rebooted. In the first instance, I shut it off again, then when it powered up once I plugged it in, the battery monitor was showing 71% at that time (when it hadn't been that high beforehand), and then when it got to about 20% again, it repeated the restart and came up showing 1% again. I'm putting it on the charger overnight.

I figure that after over a year of daily charge/discharge cycles (at least one per day, maybe two...I'm kind of a heavy user), the battery deserves its final reward, but I still hate seeing weird behavior.

I am pretty sure that buying a new battery will stop the weird behavior, and the OP wants to stop it. I was just trying to help. And thanks for defending me KingOfGreen

I put the new battery in last night, charged it overnight, and yes, it's taken care of everything. No more watching the battery counter click down while I'm loading a Facebook page.
