    I read and tried the suggestions, before I posted this, but I am at a loss.

    I have used the original EVO SHift 4G HTC AC charger with the the original USB cable, two other AC chargers and 3 different USB cable combinations, I have used my car charger and my laptop USB port to charge the phone. I have let it charge for 1 hour, two hours and overnight, multiple times.

    The phone never charges more than 27 percent the power indicator remains yellow!

    Any ideas?

    Do you have any extra batteries or have you been using the same battery?

    Does your battery last about as long as 27% should? Or does it last longer? If it lasts longer, it might just be that the battery stats are messed up

    Could it be that the battery is at the end of its useful life?:thinking:

    Extra batteries and I *just* got a new one, as well. I was waiting for it, so I can test it before I responded to these posts. They all exhibit the same behavior! It's driving me nuts!

    The battery lasts like it's about 27% charged, not any longer.

    It happens on all batteries, even a brand new 1700 mAh battery I got 3 days ago (I was waiting to post till I tested it).

    No apps running in the background, I even uninstalled spare parts. Charge it all night with the phone On/Off (it doesn't matter) and it only goes to 27% (once in a while it goes to 28%).

    Driving me nuts :-(

    I have the exact same problem on my Samsung Galaxy S3 Since i got Jelly Bean. About a week or two. Happens from time to time. Never goes above 33%. Then it gets okay again later. Weird stuff. The phone has been checked 4 times by professionals, battery sent to Samsung and i got a new one, same thing. This is without a doubt caused by Jelly Bean.

    :)
