Phone will not fully charge batteries

Blackberry Storm 9530. I have tried 2 different batteries and have tried the batteries in another phone and they charge to 100% fine.  It is sporadic about how high it will charge. Sometimes 55% other times 80%.

 

Any ideas? I've tried pulling the battery and replacing it.

Re: Phone will not fully charge batteries

Sometimes it's not the batteries... it's the device's own on-device battery meter that is wonky.

 

  • deliberately discharge your battery to 10-15%, and fully charge to 100% afterwards. This will help maintain the accuracy of the “fuel gauge” on the device (your battery meter or scale). It has nothing to do with the battery memory (as mentioned, Li-ion batteries do not have memory) but helps maintain the accuracy of the device’s percentage of battery charge left
  • Don’t drain your battery every day to 10-20% of its charge. You can actually expect battery problems by draining the battery. Again, to repeat, top-off your charge during the day whenever convenient – even ten minutes in the car or at your desk will give you an extra 20-25% charge.
