    Hey guys.

    Anyone ever experience this problem with their iPhone 5 before? I mean, my iPhone turns off at like 8%, 7% or just now at 16%. It's acts as if it died and had no battery left in.

    But as soon as I plug it in, it turns back on.

    Any suggestions or anyone had this before?

    I had similar behaviour with the Nike app open on my 4S

    Run the battery down completely, charge it back to 100% without interruptions (don't unplug it, try not to use it), and do a hard reset by holding power and home buttons before unplugging it.

    Should take care of the issue. Mine liked to do it to me when I would use the camera flash below a certain percentage. I would assume it had died but it would come back on with 20% power the moment I plugged it in. Fun.
