I don't know about PineBooks, but somebody with a PineTab had a similar issue: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=12319

This is generally what scares me about these larger lithium polymer batteries - personally I prefer to work with lithium ion hard shell batteries - but that of course doesn't work for the form factor.

I suspect it was a manufacturing issue with the battery that's slowly developed, rather than a piece of hardware that has failed. These LiPos have a relatively high failure rate and I highly doubt Pine really do anything to test them in any sense (especially given the selling price).

I don't know what recourse you have for getting your machine repaired/replaced. I would hope that Pine would want to test the motherboard to see if there was some power management failure of the battery, but it didn't look like they wanted to test the PineTab, so who knows?
