    as above it goes' from 50% to 22% in about a hour ,if i leave it for a while its' back to 30/35%.
    then down to 22% even as low as 9% .i have checked my battery health and it is 80%.
    i thought that was good .what do you think and is there any advice you can give me.

    It’s not charging itself but the charge indicator is giving an incorrect indication of the charge level. You could try recalibrating the charge indicator. To do so; let the battery run down completely then connect the iPhone to the charger and don’t use it until the battery is fully charged. Let us know if this helps.
