Help Inconsistent battery life anyone?

sometimes my battery doesn't make it a whole day, while other times it makes it a full two days without even shutting it off overnight. The usage during either of these scenarios is about the same. anyone else have this?

It's possible that your battery has more charge in it than is being reported by the battery meter and stats.

There are a couple of ways to remedy that, the simplest being to boot into recovery and wipe battery stats (it does not matter how fully charged your battery is at that time), then remove the battery for a minute or so, put it back in and run your device to as low as it can go in percentage according to the meter, then shut down the device and charge it fully.

A few cycles of that and your meter will give more accurate readings, as if it had been "calibrated."
