    Hi WPCentral,

    After my phone had been updated with the latest 8.1 which promised battery life increases, my phone suddenly stopped charging anything beyond 80%. Any suggestions on how to fix without ditching 8.1?

    Thanks all, and regards,

    Are you using the stock charger? Have you tried a soft or hard reset?

    Am facing a small issue with the battery in the Lumia 1320 after the 8.1 PFD update. The battery life has dropped and takes quite long to charge to a full battery level. what to do? will this get rectified ??

    I am facing this issue too...it takes too long for battery to get charged 100% ..I checked with an app. the charge rate is 18% per hour...something is broken in this 8.1 DP..I use stock charger and have already done hard resetting after my phone got hanged for three times in last month and a week.

    Not got my 1320 but I kinda have the same on 625, it lags, crashes, restarts and,
    short story,
    It only gets to %38 or so.
    long story,
    Before I sleep, put my phone on charge with the old nokia charger (for 620 or so), the new one died lol ;)
    This doesn't happen all the time but something similar but more ****ty happened too, It was just like this, but it was also overheating. It fixed self, weirdly ;)
    Today when I woke up, It was 100%, when I just unplugged it, It restarted itself, my battery was 30%.
    Weirdly, I used my phone non-stop for the last 7 hours. It is 21% now.

    It seems to be about DP, not just DPU2...

    oh dude. Today when I woke up, It was burning. Checked hot places, here is a example pic, Attachment 68617 , red places are hot places. Also 625's battery (how can I say it), you can't take it off, battery contacts can't be loosen. About damaged, maybe, but this is not happening all the time. Wait, It can be damaged, It only charges up to %33 and after a few hours of F U L L use It gets to %21 and stays there, for more hours, also I dropped my phone accidently and... the glass of the screen is dead ;) touch is still working. maybe the battery is damaged too?
    whatever, this was a gift from nokia (kinda, nokia sends phones to these guys to send them to their businness partner, they sent me this) and now I send them the details, they are going to send me a 1320 and take back my 625, I just have to try keeping this phone alive for a few days (i hope)...

    ps. I'm not that pictures content owner, click the link below to see the original one.
