    Hey everyone,

    I've been experiencing my triumph dying "prematurely" recently. I'm curious if I need a new battery. Is the phone dying when the battery meter shows a high value a sign of a bad battery? I'm not even making it through a day recently.

    Also, I'm running MIUI. I don't know if this is contributing or causing a problem.

    I would try re-calibrating in Clockwork. Advanced-->Wipe Battery Stats.

    Or you could check out this app on the Market that'll help you through the process.

    The battery stat is used primarily to see the battery usage.

    The actual battery % isn't calculated off that.

    Do try re calibrating the battery - but it does sound like a bad battery.

    If it's a bad battery, any suggestions on a good reasonably priced replacement?

    If it's an OEM battery VM should give you a replacement for free. Just tell them what's up.

    And if they can't get you a battery, I got a spare that I could possibly send you

    Well, this is happening every day, so I definitly think it's a bad battery.

    Would you know what number to call? I thought if you didn't have insurance it was pretty much just the manufacture warranty.

    Thanks a lot, I'll let you know if I have the need.

    Also, I don't know if you are already running this but, when you get your battery back in working order, Juice Defender worked wonders for my battery life. I just use the free version and it gave me massssssive improvements on my battery life.

    You can try this number: 1-888-322-1122 It's the one on their site to talk to a live representative. If that isn't it then I don't know. I've never done it before.

    Have you tried removing the battery for a minute? And, the phone has a 1 year warranty with Virgin Mobile.
