Default HELP! Battery Not Working right...

Hey everyone - glad I found this forum

I have a S50 from last year - about three weeks ago, I found that when I used the S50 on battery, it would go from 100% charged to 10% in an hour or so. Bought a new battery, charged it - and now it seems to not work on battery at all. The battery is fine (bought a second s 50 and it recognizes the battery is 100% charged as well as the old battery is 100% charged) but immediately when I take it out of a dock and use it portably it says "Battery Low" and shuts down

Anyone else have to deal with this?

I just bought that second s50 since it was $70 and I was afraid they're phasing these out. I would have upgraded to Stilleto but considering the s50 cost over $200 last year, the home dock was another $99 and then the executive unit was another $200 - I've kind of invested enough in this thing that I wanted to keep it...

True you have to `eat' the home dock (and I never did understand why anyone would buy one of those executive docks in the first place), but after reading this forum certainly it can't be a huge surprise to you that you likely just threw another $70 away.

Unless you bought an extended warranty, of course.
