Windows Central Question

So I got an old Lumia 930. It's running the latest version of W10 and my battery app says the battery is 100% healthy.

Whenever I use it the battery plummets. Usually by about 30% an hour.

I have turned off:
nfc
4g
Location

No joy. Please help.

did you check battery stats to see applications hogging on your battery. Most times apps I have open and suspended on background still eats battery. Try to minimize background apps

Might simply need a new battery... The previous owner may have put it through a lot of charge cycles and exhausted it...

Another issue might possibly be if you upgraded it to W10M and then did not do a Reset followed by a clean set up from scratch (no restoring a back up). Many agree this is a good way to avoid issues after upgrading...
