My Droid X BH5X batterty has begun discharging completely in just a few hours. I have begun turning off BT and GPS routinely while at home.
I purchased a BH6X which arrived today. It is supposed to have a slightly higher amp hour rating. When I installed it and placed it on the charger, the initial response was that the battery was not a true Motorola battery and could not be charged. The paper wrapping on the battery is similar to that on the BH5X and indicates that it is a Motorola battery. I left it on the charger for about two hours. The M logo would come up whenever I pressed the power button. Twice, I got a battery meter reading, first at 30% and later at 80%. I was able to start the phone while it was still connected to the charger. The battery indicator showed a question mark (?) in lieu of a battery charge status. When I removed the charger, the screen went blank. I could not turn the phone on with the new battery installed.
Has anyone else tried this battery as a replacement? If so, what was your experience?
I decided to reinstall he battery to see what would happen. When I turned on the phone, the, the battery indicator indicated that the battery was fully charged, thereby showing that the phone was recognizing the battery after all. The problem I described is solved.
