    I think these random battery performances is due to your software conditions (background apps, wifi/nfc,bt on) at that time or a faulty hardware.

    But try these tips, see if following these gets you a consistent performence.

    Here a few pointers.
    settings/ rightswipe and check whats running in the background.
    Some apps are a real drain.

    Then check your mailaccounts, how often does it sync and is it realy necessary, better is to check manually
    Same as wheaterapps, how more often how much more its drains
    Dim your screen.
    Doubletapp to wake is nice but not necessary, so turn it of.
    Wifisetting/advance, turn the first three of, the last option, timeout can stay activated.

    And if you dont use Gps, turn it of
    Same as bluetooth
    Only turn these options on when needed.

    Mobile Data is always a battery drainer. Keep it off whenever possible. WiFi is the best option. And if still your problem persists, try a hard reset.

    In my expirience with multiple handsets and operating system, from all data connections WIFI uses most energy. The minimum energy consumption is 2g, followed by 3g. WIFI is good for big downloads, but it is worst for battery, thats why it automatically gets shut down when handsets get into standby.

    But if it persist............well its not always the software, it could be a defective unit or battery........
    So he could go to a service point to rule that out.

    I got 3 days from my 520, two if i have to use it al lot.

    Nothing, it takes longer to charge and of course you have a longer batterylife
    If you refer to the cheap chinamodels, i must warn you.............they are quite good in relabeling ;-)

    Yes it will
    It only takes twice as much to charge.
    Example...if your charger lets say delivers 500 mh/h its 1430 : 500 = 2,86 ( about 3 Hours )
    With the new batery it would be 2850 : 500 = 5,7 ( about 6 Hours )

    IF its not a ripoff
    I ment with nothing that nothing bad would happend ;-)

    Well if the specs are right, you get twice as much juice, so doubble livetime.

    You can buy the original ones at a servicepoint.

    At first a new battery needs some time to perform.
    Mostly after a couple of cycles

    At first you check whats running in the background,
    And look at the bluetooth and gps ....turn it of when not needed.
    Also look at the sync of your acounts.
    And ofcourse the wifi settings, if you go advance you find a couple of settings there.
    Turn them al off exept the last one.
    Also if you dont need double tap to wake, turn it of.

    There are a lot of tips giving here on wpcentral.
