LG KS20 Battery Level Issue

My phone, 2 months old, has recently started displaying 100% charge constantly when not on charge and also not displaying the correct indicator that the phone is on the charger. This, of course, lasts for a day and then the phone dies as if the battery has completely discharged. Is this a battery issue or software issue?

    Well I've the same problem. I wonder if I should send it back to LG, but I'm afraid of loosing my 29$-Invisible-Shield-Cover :-/
    Is there an fix out there?

    ...I have the same problem, the baterry indicator is continuously on 100%, then the phone shuts down after 1 day and impossible to start without plugging the charger in.  But afterwards it immediately says that the baterry is full. For the batterry lifetime it is very dangerous. I will try the hard reset but not sure if it helps...

    The battery indication remains at 100% and upon charging it, it replies that it is fully charged

    mine is 7 months old. The battery thing just happened. Hard re-set didn't fix it.

    My KS20 is also 7 months and the battery started to last only 8 to 9 hours and just like all of you it shows at all time that its charged at 100% only to die suddenly, i called customer service in the usa for a warranty service they said the KS20 is an international phone i had to call international customer service in Honk Kong i called couple of times i guess they were closed just got a recording in chinese ill try again, IF ur phone was purchased under a year u still have warranty on everything that comes in the original box

    Hi , I am from India ; annoyed by the LS KS 20 .... Shows full charge on the Battert Indicator .... Seems like this in a common problem with this make ... Has anyone tried to reinstall the OS of the mobile and solved this problem ???

  • Alegirl Mar 31, 2009

    I had the same problem. I send the phone to be repaired, where I bought it. 3 times! It came back with the fault again. They said there was nothing wrong! Fortunately LG and the shop agreed to give me back my money.
    I loved that phone for the first month. Nice size. But... in the end, to many problems.

  • 14 Answers guys, after one week of investigation I finally managed to fix this annoying issue. I made an update of the ROM - I had the German unbranded version 10a and I flashed it with the English (Turkey) version 10d (issued in May 08) and to my surprise, the battery indicator started to work properly. For more detail how to flash your device follow the link below (of course you must know what you do so read it carefully because you will do it on your own risk) 

Another solution is to send the device to LG / distributor as a warranty repair, they will probably replace your battery. Few users posted that they have done it this way and it also helped.

Here you can find all necessary to flash your device with new ROM version:

Good luck!

My lgks20 can't load to today desktop

It seems there is fault on your software and so might require a reinstallation . Remove the battery and then switch on the phone , if the phone seems to HANG up then the software can be the issue.
It is ideal to get this confirmed before you reload .

LG KS20 phone to my notice when I insert battery chargers used to purchase a few times. very happy to receive help

Not understood the exact nature of your fault but I feel that your battery charger needs a check on voltage at the pin and also at the battery terminals on the phone. If there is voltage then it is possible that the battery is a suspect.
Otherwise choose a good quality OE product -

Viewty's battery loses charge very quickly

with rechargeable batteries you have to fully charge it up then completely run the battery dead for the first 3 or 4 times this is what extends the battery life. I have had an LG viewty for 16 months and only charge my phone twice a week. this is a golden rule for all rechargeable batteries

Battery meter, no - If you have really LG KS20  there is known this battery issue, most probably caused by the LG battery driver contained in the ROM...
As I described many times here:
...this can be solved, but is not so easy if you are not experienced with flashing new ROM - already described here:

Good luck

having same specifications as 1050mAh Lion-POLYMER 3.7v and having equivalent Size that fit into the case.

2)Now open ur dead battery, remove the sticker slowly, u wil get the polythene bag carrying the charge sheets
3)Please note that dont not disturb this polythene bag... (cutting, drilling or pinning), else it starts burning.

4)U will see a circuit above the polyhthene bag having two poles (+ve n -ve) just cut the poles of bag from the circuit and keep the bag aside

5)Now do the same procedure with new batt and remove the polythene bag.. and soilder with
the dead battery circuit. (check the +ve n -ve by multimeter)
