My wife and I both have LG cellphones. Both are less than one year old. And both of them have batteries that are failing to hold a charge for more than a few hours EVEN WHEN THEY ARE “ON” BUT NOT BEING USED.
Main LCD backlighting is set to “Always Off”; Keypad lighting is set to “Always Off”.
When placed on AC/DC wall chargers (we have two and have alternated their use), these batteries go to “Charging Complete” in approximately one hour. After an hour of “ON” but non-use, less than 2 “Bars” of battery power is indicated.
The battery in both of these phones is an LG Lithium Ion, 3.7V, 1000mAh;
LG part number LGIP-A1000E
The solution, according to Verizon (who supplied the phones in this case) is to replace the batteries, at the pro-rated cost of $40 each.
Are any of you experiencing the similar problems with your LG phone batteries?
