Battery Issues Reappear

A couple of months back I reported how my original K2 battery was quickly discharging. I purchased a new battery & all was well. Now 2 months later it's back to quickly discharging. In fact 2 days ago I noticed it had dumped 1/2 the battery (whispernet off) so I held the on switch till it fully blanked out. About as off as one can get with a K2. Today I pulled it out & the screen is on & says the battery is fully discharged & must be plugged in for charging. Obviously off is not off. Any ideas here about what's could be causing this? I'm thinking of shoving the original battery back in & just sending it in to Amazon & telling them to fix it.

Did you recently add any books? It uses a lot of battery power to index each book. So much that you can practically see it going down.
