When did you buy this phone?

Often when the battery starts to show signs that it is no longer able to hold a charge or the battery charge rapidly depletes shortly after charging, it's time to replace the battery. As a precaution, stop charging the battery. An overheated battery could cause fire or explosion which could result in personal injury. If purchased at a Koodo kiosk and the phones' battery is the original that came with your phone and under one year old, the battery is replaceable under warranty.

There was a recall for the S4 battery in October of 2013 so if you bought the phone before then definitely check to see if the battery is swollen (puffed out) and definitely don't charge it anymore like Rikkster suggested if it is. Take his suggestions seriously.
i only purchased the phone dec 2 2014
