My controller is acting strange. The battery doesn't charge as long as the controller is powered up. If it is powered up, the battery discharges until the battery is dead. I have confirmed that the cradle is supplying power to the controller. If the battery power gets low enough, the controller cycles between booting up and turning off repeatedly.
Is this a software problem? Version 7.7.3 r16662

I continued using Controllers long after others had migrated to mobile apps (what I do now). On multiple occasions I had to replace batteries after symptoms just like those described. I still have a spare.
You can easily find replacements fairly cheaply on Amazon (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Pack-Replacem.../dp/B00FABVIG4) and elsewhere.
