    Default Battery question

    Hi!

    recently my battery life has been terrible so i've decided to restore as new via iTunes. That helped and now it looks much better (1 day standby & 5-6 hrs usage) which is good i think given the fact that i'm using twitter a lot with banners etc.

    But.. I've noticed strange behavior. Right now i'm charging my phone, it was at 14% and suddenly while charging the battery percentage dropped to 10% and of course the warning message show up. Is it normal to see something like this while charging? At the time i was using "kitcam" app and app store.

    Sometimes when i'm at 20% for example (not charging) i see the battery percentage drop to 10% in just a few seconds. That happened even before the restore.

    So. Should i be worried about this? I'm open for any suggestions.

    iPhone 4s, iOS 6.1.3

    Thank you!!!

    Try charging with a different charging cable just in case yours if damaged. Also, you might want to make an appointment with a nearby Apple Store, just in case.

    Thanks. I'll try with another cable and we'll see.

    I'd also try a different charging cable and a different outlet.

    Was your iPhone plugged into a computer or to a wall outlet when this happened?
