I have been having a strange problem for a couple of weeks now. While charging the phone, the battery level:
- jumps around all over the place, going from 9% to 67% in a couple of minutes, staying there for another few minutes, then falling back to something like 8%. I managed to charge it to 60% before I went to work, and not 5 minutes after I left it was down at 45% (I'm not sure if this was down to the battery level actually decreasing that much, or if it was a false percentage from the start).
- switches the charging on and off rapidly. This is especially annoying if I'm low on power, since it will beep to indicate low power everytime it switches off - so around once a second until it actually starts charging, which can take a few minutes and a lot of fiddling around.
- drains the battery while still plugged in to charge. One minutes it will say "Charging (65%)" and the next minute it will say "Charging (59%)".
Is this a problem with my charger, or my phone? I have tried charging both in the wall and in my USB port in my laptop. Could it be the cable that needs replacing?
I'd be grateful for answers.
