I haven't experienced the same problem, but I have read many people use a hard shutdown to resolve their battery issues. To do this you hold down the power button for 20 seconds (and no less), this is done when the PlayBook is up and running of course. Give it a try and see if it helps.

It does nothing more than just using the battery icon and then RESTART

Plenty people had no problems.  What tips have you tried?

 

I would do a complete backup and wipe, or debrick, then any settings that may be causing it will be removed.

A NOTE ON DOING A "BACKUP-WIPE-RESTORE:"

 

My own experience with doing this is that certain information will NOT be restored.

- All your Contacts information

- All your Calendar information

- All your Email Accounts

- All the stock Wallpapers that came with the device

- the Demo HD video that came with the device

 

There may be more things that don't get restored, but I haven't found them yet. I'm not sure what the problem is, although I think it's with the Desktop software not handling the tablets properly - but that's just a guess on my part.

I've tried everything to restore the battery, nothing works.  My wife's is the same.

 

I got three hours of battery on Monday. It's not even worth taking out of the house anymore.

If you have not tried before do a hard reset.  Press AND HOLD both volume buttons AND the power button AT THE SAME TIME for about 20 (yes twenty) seconds or until the red LED blinks.  At this point. I can't recall it will either restart on its.own or you may have to press the power button. 

 

I had your problem after installing the latest OS. Now my PB works fine.  I would swear the battery now last longer. - but I have no proof.
