    I too am having this issue, getting new battery installed by local technician. I'll post some results after Christmas. Just limiting extra use without being plugged in. Stay tuned...

    Update!!!! 1-11 I had my local technician replace battery with an OEM 1520 battery. So far so good. I have had no shutdowns and all seems to be working correctly after 1 week. Hope this helps!!

    I have a Nokia Lumia 1520. feel so sad to do away with this phablet.... Even though the battery saver shows 70% charge left, the phone shuts down intermittently.

    Steve, let me ask you this.
    Does keeping a phone connected to a charger with a full battery damage it?
    When I went to a local battery shop to replace the battery on my Lumia 1520, she told me that keeping the phone on the charger "dries the battery"
    Actually, it isn't possible to say, without more information. It all depends on how smart the charging circuitry is in the phone. If it is really good, it will do no harm at all to leave the battery on charge all the time. Indeed, smart charger circuits can maintain the battery in tip-top condition pretty well indefinitely.

    Unfortunately, there are also "dumb" charging circuits, which can indeed shorten the life of the battery if left on charge all the time. I don't know whether it's literally a "drying out" process, or some other chemical changes, but yes - such a circuit can shorten the life of a battery.

    The problem is I have no idea how good the charging circuitry is in modern smartphones, nor do I know any way of finding out. Perhaps if a trained smartphone technician reads this he/she might have some inside information for us.

    I'm sorry I can't be of more help. :-(

    Unfortunately, there is no way to help other than replacing the battery.

    I bought my new battery on eBay from a seller called "TSCBARGAINS" and it had all of the Nokia branding and a manufactured date of July 2015.

    I replaced it in my phone last night and it works well. Like others, I had the issue where the charge status shows as 82% after a full charge. Total install time took about an hour for me. Need to heat the glue on the back of the battery with a heat source to loosen it up (I used a hair dryer) and then wedged the battery out with small screw drivers.

    I replaced mine with an aftermarket Nokia BV-4BW (not genuine) and can only charge it to 82%. Which indicates that it is actually a 3000 mAh battery and not 3400. Otherwise it works well, was easy to change out and now my Lumia 1520 is working as new with a full day easily attainable on one charge.
