    I had 56% battery left at 7:30p. It is now 9:22p and I am at 15%.

    Time to drain it to zero, or till it dies.
    Then you start recharging, hoping that the meter will re-sync , and start giving normal readings.

    But do you think it is draining unusually fast? It is 5% @ 9:56.

    Actually I agree with the suggestion to just let it drain until it shuts off then let it charge back up to 100% so it will reset the battery percentage indicator.

    Maybe what is draining is not the battery - but the meter :confused:

    I know this. I just wanted to see if anyone thought my battery doesn't last very long.

    I guess no one can answer my questions? I'm not asking what to do.:(

    There is probably nothing wrong with your battery. It only appears that your battery is draining faster than you are used to seeing. I guess what we are trying to say is that the percentage indicator goes gefundershnitz and gives innacurate readings and this procedure usually takes care of that.
