    This may already be here, I did search... My Droid has done this twice in the last 2 weeks. I get the red light, my battery says 5% (when seconds before this it was at about 60%), and says I need to charge. I turn off the phone, wait a few seconds and restart it, and boom, back to 60% again. I don't have any new apps running. Today it happened when there was an incoming call, I ingored the call, turned the phone off, and the charge was back.
    Thanks for any help or ideas

    Take out the battery and give the contacts a good cleaning.
    Clean the contacts in the phone too if you can.

    Might help, if it's just a bad battery connection or oxidation on the brass contacts.
    Worth a try.
    If that doesn't work, take it back to the dealer, they might even be familiar with the problem.

    It happened to me twice, happened to a few other people. Seems like normal Motorola Droid behavior. don't know if there an actual report to Motorola.

    Thanks everyone. I'll just keep track of it. Very frustrating though

    I wonder if this is really a date time issue like the camera auto focus was. Twice now my battery suddenly went to 5% and a few hours later my wifes droid did the same thing. We bought them on the same day at the same store. That is too much of a coindicidence in my book.
