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.

  • GNC2K Feb 03, 2009

    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.

...so 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:

If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

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

...no, 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:
