    The OPO doesn't "need" Root, just as any other android need it. But to truly enjoy the capabilities root is a pleasure

    download advanced battery calibrator; charge phone to 100%, then run the app, press button on app, restart OPO, and you are up and running. What I did read is that it's important most of the time to use the original OPO charger as maybe it contains other Amps then other chargers. true or not, this sol worked for me. No need to root the phone by the way..

    I too am facing the problem of charging the phone which is currently at 40%.. it refuses to charge using the original OPO charger when connected to a power socket. Had charged it to full 100% the previous day.
    However, when OPO charger was connected it to my PC the battery charging status was up. Phone was also able to charge with other Charger but not with the OPO charger.
    Can anyone let me know the reason why the phone doesn't charge with OPO charger?

    could be a defective charger. does any other charger (e.g. any USB will do) have the same symptoms?

    Right now I'm using Moto G charger to charge my OPO and it is charging fine.

    To be honest I'm not sure, I am currently talking to OnePlus about my random reboot issues. They have given me a few steps to try in an attempt to solve my problem. This is one of the steps. It didn't solve my reboot issue but I figured I could pass on the information and maybe help someone else out.

    Symptoms say: a failed battery's characteristics is something you describe, drops voltage earlier - e.g. when your phone thinks there is still 30% juice available - and this dip forces your phone to shut down or turn off. Your battery should also be distorted - but it's hidden behind the back cover...
    There is a small chance that the battery is not properly charged and the charging circuit is weak to recognize the problem (don't start flaming fanboys, almost all devices use the same creepy boards).
    The best would be to charge the battery 100% outside of the phone with the proper lipo charger - but as it's not replaceable, your only option is to follow addam's steps...

    These type of battery calibrators do nothing but remove the battery statistics file - with battery usage statistics, including information on wakelocks, processes, packages, and services - used to persists information between reboots. This has no effect on charging!

    Well it solved my problem, now phone starts from 100% and shuts at 1% as it should..it is worth a try since it's the easiest.

    You are totally wrong, because the % indicator are not right, if the battery neds calibration!

    Thats not that easy.
    First: the 500 cycle is a very good value!
    Second: if a battery has 500 cycles for 100% DOD (depth of discharge, 100% means fully discharged), the battery would do some 1500 cycles with 50% DOD!

    yes, as always... Having my old phone handed over to family member after 1.5year all I had to do is to buy a new battery and replace it myself.

    correct. 100% displayed on your android screen is not always 100% in your battery.
    The problem is that the integrated charge circuits are not programmable, you can't always calibrate your battery with those boards - that's why it would be recommended to do a real battery 100% calibration with an external/professional charger/calibrator.
    TI: try to cool down your device/battery after charging it to 100% and then continue charging for some more time.
