I used:

W= Ui - Uf

U= 0.5CV^2

Uf= (0.5)C(k*Vi)^2

Ui = (0.5)C(Vi)^2

Vi=initial potential difference.

I have tried to double check the math, so I guess I messed up with the formulas. Where did I go wrong?

In such processes where the battery is disconnected the charge will remain unaltered, not potential difference.
