LiPO composite cell, probably swollen, and not reaching proper full charge due to anode degeneration.

Asploding batteries.

By the sounds of it, it must be really swollen/damaged.

If the phone has an user removable battery do so and change it for a new one. If not then take it to a repair shop of your trust.

Do not use that battery anymore and dispose of it on whichever way local regulations indicate. Do not pierce the battery or put it on fire.

But what if the local regulations say to do that?

Also if your far enough away from the fire when you throw it in what harm can it do?

I've had a swollen battery in my laptop recently. But this one isn't. The behaviour with the laptop leading up to the swelling was different too - that one would show full charge but immediately turn off if unplugged. But then again, that might have had more to do with unrelated differences in design.

Plugged it in for a while, and it seems to be holding charge normally now. I guess I'll be on the lookout for fireworks in my pants, eh?

If you recently updated, I've had phones do the same just once and then be fine for months and months. No idea the cause, feels like software burning the processor.

Could be a cell of the battery that is damaged. Either way, if is a serviceable by user one and you have the moneys, buy the replacement.

In Android phones, there are two "Fuel gauges" that track battery capacity.

One tracked by android itself, in the file system. (This is what gets cleared by all those "Battery doctor" apps)

Another backed into the charge controller of the LiPO cell itself.


It is possible that the one in the android file system thought the battery was full when it wasnt, until the voltage started dropping. Then the phone queried the charge controller in the battery and said "HOLY SHIT BATMAN", and promptly updated its internal fuelguage value, and shut down.

Shouldn't that be even more sudden, rather than gradual? I could see the charge level icon go down little by little before it turned off.

Yeah, I ain't gonna. Not because I can't afford it, but because I hate technology.

Picked up me trusty phone to check some article on the Wiki. Battery is nearly at full charge. Finished reading a couple minutes later - battery at 13%. Turned off data transfer and closed all aps - the phone kept losing charge until it turned off within seconds. What.
Another thing that could have happened is that the voltage was reduced by cold.
It is unlikely, since people's pants are generaly not cold places. But if it was very cold where you were, the battery could cool down and lose voltage that way.
It would not really lose charge, but would be unable to provide sufficient voltage.

That once happened with a tablet I was using. However, I was keeping it in a bag and was hiking across a mountain in the winter, so those were quite extreme circumstances.
