    Lately I've had a problem with the Battery in my Desire.
    When I charge it, the fist 10-20-30% of my battery just drains in no time. Like this morning, it was fully charged when i left home, and i have around 15 minutes to work. The phone was just laying there while i drove, and when I got here it was already down to 94%.
    I lokked through my calendar, and then it was down to about 90%.
    It's been an hour since then, I've only used it for a few texts, and now I'm down to 79% battery left.
    With the kind of use I've had today, my phone would normally be around 98% at this point.
    There should be nothing running in the background, and no other syncing than a bare minimum.
    Spare parts tells me theres been basically no use. Trafficstats doesn't show any unusual traffic.
    It's like the battery is just draining itself for no reason... Been like this for over a week now.
    Any ideas to what I should do?

    If you search there are a lot of threads on this sort of thing.

    Try pulling the battery in the first instance. Sounds like it may not be getting a full charge and this may help to re-set it.

    It may need calibrating.

    Search for that here

    I've pulled the battery and I've also let it use up all the juice and then fully recharge it.
    I can't get to recovery. No idea why, I just get a screen with a phone and an "!".
    Nothing I've found seems to help.
