Extreme/Strange battery problem

i am having a quite unusual problem with the battery on my TP. it is hard to explain but i will try my best to do so. While i was casually surfing the web while on the charger i noticed that my battery started to drain ( this is the more ordinary problem that has been posted on many threads ) but this new situation is. The indicator lights and meters within the TP indicate that the battery is charging yet it still drains. I tried turning it completely off and removing the battery and then putting it back in and charge the unit for one hour. After one hour it charged to 20% which is reasonable enough for normal use, so i turn it back on and continue to use the device again the TP still indicates that the battery is charging after listening to about 7 songs i get a very low battery indicator warning (at the same time the battery indicates its charging) there is NO overheating and when the battery reaches 0% it does not die the screen just goes off and i can turn it back on and still recieve the low battery warning but what i cannot do is use data or even turn the phone radio back on. I am on the NFS 1.05 ROM, any suggestions?

Flash back to Stock and see if it continues is what I would do.

Re: Extreme/Strange battery problem

Have you installed anything recently or changed around settings? Possibly something that could be conflicting with your phone. Sometimes I see my phone draining quicker than than usual, although not as drastic as your stated, and a soft reset usually sets it right.

Re: Extreme/Strange battery problem

You said charger...

But do you mean you have it plugged into the USB, or you you are using a wall charger? I believe NSFFan has Fast-USB charge enabled by default (or at least I think he used to), so if you are on the USB, that could be the problem.

Re: Extreme/Strange battery problem

My old TP's battery would run down faster than it could charge if I used Pandora or just about any other media streaming app. I know a few other people that didnt have this problem, so it may just be we had defective phones.
