Battery Problem


I've been using my N97 Mini since Jan '10, and I still think it's a great phone.

BUT - my beloved N97 has developed a fault, and I can't fix it. This has happened suddenly, in the last week or so. I haven't changed my usage habits, or downloaded any new apps.

The problem:

Every night I switch it off, and plug in a genuine Nokia charger to charge overnight. When I switch on in the morning, the battery indicator shows "full".

All is well for around 5 hours or so, with the phone showing all 7 battery bars. Then, suddenly, it drops to one bar, and I get the low battery warning. Then the phone dies.

The attempted solutions:

I tried to find Nokia's battery monitor, but it's been updated for Symbian 3, and won't work on the N97 any more.

I bought some genuine BL-4D batteries, and tried replacing the original battery.

I tried a hard reset.

The problem hasn't gone away.

Any thoughts?

The battery life depends on repeatedly charging and discharging frequency, so should try to avoid more charge when the battery power, this will shorten the service life of the battery. Mobile phone off time more than 7 days, should first will phone the battery to completely discharge, enough electricity before use
