Your battery may not be holding a charge because it could have been by fall or water damage. Any damage to your battery may cause a phone to no longer hold a charge. Also, it could be the charger input or the charger itself is damaged. Check out our troubleshooting page at HTC One M7 Troubleshooting for a detailed description. However, the main things would be check your charger, check your wall outlet, reset the charging logic, or replace the battery.

Have you checked the battery usage history? Sometimes I get a rouge app like Facebook Messenger that eats a large portion of my battery and I have to force stop it. Apps that use location services can be pretty power hungry too.

That being said, if there's nothing suspicious in your battery usage history, it could very well be a battery defect. If that's the case, Jeremy left some pretty good suggestions to resolve it.

My wife has 2 HTC One Androids. The first one you could charge 100% unplug it not open it all night and have 30% battery the next morning which tells me something is draining it. After continuing to have issues since she loves the phone I bought another one right out of the box and it does the same thing. At my wits end... If anyone has any ideas please share.. Thank you in advance for your help!!
