    I have two batteries for my Droid and one jumps from 60% to 20% very quickly when discharging and jumps from 20% to 60% instantly when charging. Is this just a bad battery or is there something I can do to fix it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Some users swear by running a battery all the way to phone non-responsiveness, then charging to 100% to "calibrate" the meter to the battery.

    I tried all that and it didn't work for me But you should do that in conjunction with>> what did work was: (
    I cannot give the proper credit to the dude who suggested it first , I dont remember:
    But here goes...
    1.Plug your phone in to charge- do it when you need to ( when it is discharging or at the point of suspicion )

    2. While pluged in take out the battery-- phone will shut off and reboot -wait for it to start and do its sd card check ..let it finish.

    3. then put your battery back in ( i have noticed it will be usually a different amount then when you first had started to charge it )
    4. Let it charge all the way plus an extra 10 min.

    THANK YOU! This worked for me. Today, I have 20% BAttery left after 13 hours. That is amazing. Previously, my phone went from 60% to 20% too rapidly and I have had to charge 2 or 3 times in the same period of time.
