Lithium batteries don't last forever: and how you charge them makes a big difference. If you habitually leave them charging to "full" that can drastically shorten their life - charge to only 85% of capacity and they last a lot longer! (My phone has a optional software cutoff at 85% to do just that for me.)

Have a look here: BU-808: How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries - Battery University[^] and get a new battery!

Were you affected by the geomagnetic storms this past weekend?
Communication disruptions, electrified pipes, random unexplained blue-screens in Windows - the list of effects is terrifying.
