Battery level is crazy

Hi guys

 

After update I noticed that battery level is very random....

 

Let me explain.

 

If I have 100% of battery and start recording......after some time battery will drain to ~50% level  and this is OK, this is normal. I turn it Off. After turn it ON my battery level is 60% and in the blink of an eye falling to 53%. I see it like timer......level is going down and stops. This is not bothering me as much as another situation:

 

I charging my battery, camera is OFF. Because I dont see andy battery level I turn it ON. My indicator shows 53% after two blinks of an eye rising to 60%.....67%.....73%........and stops. Weird isn it ?

 

It is not a big problem for me but at all it is better to wait some seconds to see the real battery level....Maybe software or sensore is retire ? :)

 

- yes I have correct SD CARD - got from GP with camera. 

- yes I have correct battery - oryginal 2 bateries from GP - first = Samsung and this other  second = **bleep**ty one from "MuhenTuhen in Badenbaden " (Amperex)
