Camera kills battery?

Hi;  I have a G2 that normally works fine.

Whenevery I use the camera, after a few pics (1-3) the camera powers off for low battery. after restarting the battery has taken a massive drain of approx 20% but still has lots of power left.

Using the camera is the only time I have this issue.  There is no camera app other than the stock Moto app.

Other than that my battery usage is pretty good.

What can I/you do to remedy this?

Sounds like the battery is failing to me.

 

Its quite common for them to show a decent %, then power off/restart.

If the battery in there is genuine and hasnt been repalced since new then its probably on its last legs by now with the age.

Battery holds a charge just fine 4-5 days between charges. It is just when the camera is used the drop off is immediate.
