Trouble with battery in brand new PB

I have recently bought my PB and I wonder if this is normal behaviour when in use: Fully charge battery will work normally until reaching 65% when it drops immediately to 0% (normal LED and sound notification is present and battery indicator shows no power in battery). Short time connection to charger (5 seconds) restores battery indicator to previous level ie 65%. Than unit work until it reaches 55% and scenario repeats as at 65% level. What should I do? Cheers

Dragon, Thanks mate for the advise. The problem existed prior to upgrade to new os. I have already enquired with seller. Rgds
