Prior times I had not received Low Battery Notifications, so at least I got one this time.

 

however, the Notification stated it was at 4%.  Course it died two days later.

 

So I understand measuring battery levels can be a tricky thing, but I was hoping for a bit more lead time.  Luckily I had just got back the prior day from a week long vacation..otherwise it would have been dead during our trip.

FYI:  I'm using these Batteries:

Not sure why you got a messg with 4% left.... usu they are higher.  My last two emails were 11% and 15%.

 

Maybe due to usage?

I don't think usage was an issue, I don't get much activity on it.  That battery had lasted a long time.  I had seen it go down one bar from full a couple days prior on the phone gui and I was interested how long it would last from that point.  Not long apparently.
