    So ... The battery problems. I don't know what to do. Because battery magic is saying I have alot of time left on my battery. But it's complete bullsh*t. I'm scared to exchange it for another one. Like it was just 85 percent 2 minutes of browsing and it's at 80. On low Brightness. No apps in backgroun. What to do

    I think my battery is kinda weak too. I notice when browsing it drains pretty quick. I think because apps stay open, it causes drainage too. I'm getting a replacement from Apple soon I'll see if that ones any different.

    Charge your device completely, then use it until it dies. Then charge it up once more completely. That will re-callibrate the battery, and should be more accurate.

    Also, a tip on better battery life- charge it ONLY when it's below 20% (10% is better). Don't take it off until it's above 95% or so. Charging it while it has 50% left will really kill the battery. It's not terrible to do it every once in a while, but avoid that. Its kept my iPhone 3G going for over 2 days at a time, while actively using it.

    If you do that and you don't notice a difference after about a week, you might have a defective battery. But re-callibrating and charging it correctly should help, or at least tell you if you have a good battery. Hope that helps

    In Battery Magic, there's a setting that gives you the slider to select you battery's health. Accurate health info gives a better estimation.

    Don't replace it. Just try what I suggested, and if that has absolutely no effect then you might have a bad battery. For the most part that will fix any rechargeable batteries.
