When new, the E815 would run for 8 days in standby. In the last year or so, the phone must be charged every 3-5 days. I bought a new battery, but it didn't help.
It also often makes the sound it normally makes when shutting down, usually twice in a row.
I'm sorry to hear you're having battery problems edjack. I know it's essential to have a battery life to keep up with your day. How long have you had the device? Are there any other issues? Have you tried a different charger?
