    I phone stopped charging. Last night it wouldn't charge around 60 percent no matter what cable I used. Plug in and charge for 2 seconds. And then lightning symbol on battery widget went off. When I got the 15 percent warning it started charging and went to 100%. Or i f I turn it off it cahrges with the green light big battery symbol. But today it started the same thing. Went down to 35 percent and it started charging again. Something is wrong.

    Hi,
    The battery may be overheating. Try Battery Widget by Elvison to monitor temperature. Try using USB2 (computer) to charge at a lower current (& temperature). Were you using your phone a lot (games)? That will raise the battery temperature. I had a battery with a flaky temperature sensor that caused a similar problem when I was using the phone alot and then tried to charge with the high current OEM charger.

    That looks fully charged to me, and really cool... Try replacing the battery (if your phone is customized). With a device this cheap, just replacing it may be the better option.

    It is for a phone processor. On average, that's what mine runs.

    Mine auto stops charging at 115F. I used an app that measured proc temp because I had the same charging prob back in June when it was very hot in Ohio. Tech support said it was the default limit for the Avail. Once it cooled, it charged fine.

    Use CWM to make a backup file & transfer it to your PC. When you get the new phone use it to restore your new phone. Assuming your USB works.

    It wouldn't be a good idea. It would cause condensation.

    EBay has a battery & charge that is a stand alone. I think it was $30.
