    I had to put my beloved 950 on the shelf when I went to a new mobile carrier that did not support my phone. I recently got a bluetooth home stereo system and thought that it would make a nice digital music player for the stereo so I bought a micro SD card and loaded up all my music. I was having serious battery and random restart issues before benching it, so I bought a battery off of ebay for $10 that seems to work.

    The problem I have now is that when I place the phone on a wireless charger with less than 100% charge it will charge up until full (100%) and then stops. I do not remember this behavior previously, but I've read that it is by design to avoid over-charging. I think it signals the Qi charger to stop, or something? In any case, once hitting 100%, it starts a steady decline in battery remaining until it hits 0% and shuts off. If I take it off the charger for a minute, turn it on, and put it back on the charger it will recharge, but I don't use the device every day and it is often dead when I want to use it.

    What is going on? Can I do something to make it stay charged on Qi?

    Your old battery burned out on you. And your new battery is cheap and has also burned out on you.

    If you want a stable phone, your best bet is to buy an OEM battery.

    If you're in Europe, i'd advise going with https://rounded.com/microsoft-lumia-...h-0670775.html

    If you're in the US, i'd recommend calling Palcotech (https://www.palcotech.com/) and placing an order on the phone.
