It seems like the phone uses a lot of power or you talk a lot on the phone. If your buying a cheap battery just remember you get what you pay for. This site here has some batterieshttp://www.shopping.com/xPO-Vtech-VTECH-V-TECH-Cordless-phone-battery-for-IP811-IP-811-NEW Otherwise check Ebay or Amazon. Hope I've shed some light on this for you.

You could try leaving it on charge a bit longer but if it keeps happening it either means dock doesn't charge the battery any longer (check for the charging symbol on the phone when in dock), or the battery in the phone has had its days.
Open your phone and
check it, but I think this
is the right battery. Batt-6010Vtech 89-1326-00-00

Almost certainly you will have to spend $50 or $60 on a new battery. Assuming it has a removable battery, which most cordless phones do. Take the phone to Radio Shack and see if they have the proper replacement battery.
Your phone may have a faulty sensor. If the only notification is that your screen displays low battery, and there is no interruption or disruption of service or quality to the product you can most likely leave it as is. If your phone is still under factory warranty, do not replace the battery, ask for a replacement for a faulty product. I would personally test the lifetime of your phone by leaving it off the charger for a day, and if it lasts the entire day without dying, then it is a problem with your phone's sensor / battery indicator. If the phone dies after a few hours of use or standby, then there is a problem with your battery and your battery tester.
buy a new battery from ebay. just type in the search box, 80-5808-00-00 (the battery number) You should be able to get a replacement for around $6 incl shipping. This worked for me anyway. (Same symptoms you described)
