Default Battery drain from 100% < 1 hr. ?

All of a sudden a couple of weeks ago my Triumph started having HUGE battery drains. I can charge it to 100% and within an hour it will be deleted. If I'm using it, it will shutdown at around 40-60%. After reboot it shows 0% battery.

I've deleted the battery stats and went through that whole routine of charging and draining, charging and draining to no avail.

I bought a couple of new batteries. Same thing. Within an hour...dead.

I deleted ALL my apps. No help.

Installed battery monitors. Nothing shows up out of the ordinary.

I did a factory reset. No help.

I installed CM7 reloaded. No go.

Any suggestions???

Thanks, Michael...........

Unfortunately Michael, it sounds like you might just need a new device. Sounds like something in this one has gone bad, hardware wise and is causing the issue.

Sorry about your luck, however, welcome to the forums

Yep. That's what me and the guys I work with were thinking.
I appreciate the response.

Default Same problem

Mine would turn off randomly and when I turn it back on it says 0%. I pull the battery and it goes back to normal %. I put small pieces of tinfoil in the battery terminals which has almost completely fixed the issue (sometimes pops up still). I have a new battery coming from VM so well se what happens. This is my 2nd triumph btw.

Good Luck

Yes, I found the terminals on the battery can be easily damaged or spread apart enough where they don't make good contact.
I have 3 batteries and they all discharge very quickly. Even the brand new one.
What's strange is they seem to discharge in 4% steps. Starts out at 100%, 96%, 92%, etc.....
