Droid Charge Battery Life


Sunday 05th of February 2012 / androidforums.com
I have tried several things to improve the battery life of my droid Charge including: manually killing running applications, have wifi turn off automatically after no activity in a short time, loading an application to manage the power better. As time goes on, I have found the battery life to be pathetic. One of the reasons I bought the Droid Charge was that it supposedly had more run time life than others. I have found the idle time power usage to be pathetic. I do have a backup battery, but I am beginning to wonder if you need 2 phones if you have a smart phone. One which has a battery life to perform as a phone, and the other a smart phone with its capabilities but an unacceptable battery life. Charged the phone yesterday and after the charge I only accessed it briefly last night to clear some mail, and then this morning after being idle over night with only 13hours it only had 23% charge from 5 minute use the night before. Am I missing something or is this supposed to be acceptable. If it is, Samsung should include a secondary cheap phone with its smart phone so you can still use

Is everyone going to agree with everything said here in these forums? Exactly. I was just pointing out the fact that 4x more is a ton of bat

Something with data service affecting my battery life lately?


Sunday 01st of May 2011 / androidforums.com
I've been running the seidio 3500 battery in my evo for several months, and had been consistsntly getting around 3 1/2 to 4 days of life. The last couple weeks though I'm down to just 2 or so days. I started to zero in on the most recent launcher pro update as the prime suspect, but now im not so sure. After tracking my device usage in system panel for about a day, I'm noticing that the quicker battery drain only seems to be happening when I'm off my home Wi-Fi. Is it possible that something's going on with my data service recently that's killing my battery more quickly? Anyone ever notice this? How might I go about troubleshooting??

Something is KILLING my battery life!!


Sunday 09th of January 2011 / droidforums.net
I have installed juice defender and it says I'm saving 1.5 etc as far as I can understand it. I just know that since I have installed JD I will loose alot of battery. For example I lost 10% in the first Jr with the Droid just sitting. And down to 50% in three hours. I am about to uninstall JD and see what is going on. Sent from my Droid using DroidForums App

Serious Battery Drain...HELP!


Monday 05th of March 2012 / droidforums.net
I just picked up and activated my Nexus on Saturday and got all my apps on it and set everything up. But my problem is last night I went to bed, my phone was at least at 75%, I woke up and it was completely dead. So I threw it on the charger before I left for work, got to work, and the phone has been on the charger all morning and the battery level is dropping. I was at 51%, and then after like 20 minutes I was at 48%, now it's been on the charger for about 30-45 minutes and it's only at 55%. Something is killing my battery and I don't know what. I checked Battery under Settings and nothing absurd is using up all the power, I set my apps to not sync constantly. I have the power control widget and the only thing enabled atm is data sync and the display is on the lowest setting. What the heck is going on with my battery life??I do not get 4G in my apartment, I found an article on how to shut it off in Settings because it supposedly is a huge battery waster. I might just cancel 4G all together, I don't get it at work, I don't get it in my apartment, the only time would be if I was out o

Messed up battery


Thursday 27th of June 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
So a few days ago, my battery was fine. Wouldn't really drain at all when not in use. For the past 2 days it has been acting up, though.In about 2 hours, it went from fully charged to 49% battery life while just sitting on my desk, idle. Then I went to do some stuff to save the battery such as killing apps, removing live wallpaper (been using it 2 years, didn't have problems with it draining life), etc. Just some simple stuff. In the 5 minutes that I did this on my phone, the battery went from 49% to 41% which has me worried now. I removed the battery just to see if the interior of the phone was damaged or something, but saw that it looked just as it has for the past 2 years since I got it. I put the battery back in after taking it out at 41%. It tells me my battery life is at 6% now just after taking it out for 1 minute from 41%...do I need a new battery? Something is clearly wrong with my phone. The battery won't last long if it is like this. What should I do?

Verizon Login killing my battery!


Saturday 20th of September 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
So I upgraded my Maxx HD to the Droid Maxx and since day one, my battery life isn't getting me what my Maxx HD got before the Kit Kat update. It seems Verizon Login is absolutely demolishing my battery life. I've cleared it's cache, I've disabled the app and it still runs. Am I missing something or am I stuck?

Nexus 6 - battery drain overnight!


Monday 06th of April 2015 / forums.androidcentral.com
I've only had my Nexus 6 since Thursday but over the last few nights I've noticed that I've gone to bed and the battery percentage is around 85 but come to it in the morning and it's around 15! As fart as I can tell I've no major apps draining the battery. However wifi is on and so is Bluetooth (for my in-car connection) but in saying this, I had the same set-up with my Note 3 and its battery didn't drain like this at all (it was running 4.4.2) What am I missing, have I done something wrong or is there an app running in the background that I can't find killing my battery life? Cheers
