My 2G mini... its battery jumps. I mean like I fully charged it overnight... listened to it for 15 minutes... then it says my battery is dead. So 10 minutes later I turn it on, and the battery is pretty much full.. is this a known issue? And it wasnt a one time thing, it happens like every other day.

Have you tried calibrating the battery? Let it run until you know it is completely flat and cannot start up again. Then charge it up to 100%. This technique helps align the firmware's idea of how much charge the battery can hold with the actual physical amount of charge the battery can hold. :)
