General :: Toggling WiFi On And Off Drain Battery?

Jun 3, 2013

Will toggling Wi-Fi on and off drain your battery? I'm asking this because I read:

[URL]...

Essentially, you want your Wi-Fi sleep policy to be "Never" because when the Wi-Fi sleep policy is "Always," your phone searches for Wi-Fi more often and that drains battery (I think that's what it is saying).

At the moment, I toggle the W-Fi on every time I'm using it and off as soon as I'm done using it in an attempt to save battery. I'm not sure if this actually works or it's actually draining my battery because it would search for Wi-Fi every time I toggle it on.

On my Samsung Galaxy S4, I can't find Wi-Fi sleep policy as mentioned in the article, but I found "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep." Am I supposed to set this setting as "Always" to save battery life?

I toggle Air View and Smart Gestures on a frequent basis as well--not sure if I should do that too.

General :: Battery Drain On Wifi Off / Sync On?

Sep 30, 2013

I was wondering, if I set wifi off but I keep the global sync option on in the 4.2.2 tiles, does the apps will try to sync even if wifi is off, and then drain a little bit off battery ?

My Samsung galaxy 3 mini is with o2 and reception at home is poor to zilch and keeps coming and going. I have therefore installed tugo, but the phone keeps toggling between wifi (tugo) and mobile reception, if and when i get it.

Is there a simple way to turn off the phones mobile connection to force it to stay on tugo via my wifi, while at home and then enable mobile connection when I leave home ?

HTC EVO 4G :: Wifi Is Disconnected When On Standby - Battery Drain

Oct 18, 2010

At home i've noticed that even though I have wifi on, it'll drain 15-20% of my battery over night (8 hours). When I turn the display on it'll show that there's no wifi connection available, but wifi is still enabled. After i turn the display on, it'll quickly connect to my wifi. Is this normal? How do i make it stay connected to my home wifi when the display is off/phone is in standby?

Motorola Droid :: GPS - BT - Wifi Battery Drain When Not In Use

Feb 15, 2010

Just to clarify, is there in fact battery pull and drain from BT, Wifi and GPS even if you are not actually using them as there no app running needing them and no icon showing them active in the menu bar?

I am curious if they are sending out polling or searching signals and thus, still draw the battery down? It seem they must, agreed?

Is it a substantial pull? I kind of want to leave them all on, but have started the habit of having them off and just using a widget to turn each on - 1 by 1 - as needed.. but that is kind of a PITA and I wonder if it is not even necessary?

HTC Incredible :: WiFi Connection Turned On Drain More Battery

May 8, 2010

I know the WiFi uses less battery than the 3G. My question is should I leave the WiFi on all the time if I only have WiFi at home? Will it be actively searching for a WiFi signal when I am out of range of my home network and drain more battery? I have the Network notification unchecked in the WiFi settings if that helps at all. Basically I just want to know if I should turn WiFi off when I leave my house.

Sprint HTC Hero :: WiFi More Of A Battery Drain Than OTA Network

Nov 27, 2009

However I wonder if it is less of a battery drain to use my WiFi at home / work than to simply use the Sprint network / Ev-Do Rev A?

I figured that since it can read my WiFi easier, it might use less power, then again it is a function on the phone that needs to be launched and therefore might be draining more.

Motorola Droid :: Wifi On - Cell Signal Weak - Fast Battery Drain

Nov 21, 2009

I think I figured out why sometimes my Droid stays on for 1.5 days and sometimes after 6 hour of just being idle the battery is drained.

When wifi is turned on an connected to a network, the cellular signal is way low and it just drains the battery.

General :: Battery Drain On AT&T GS3 With CM 10.1

Aug 10, 2013

For some reason my battery drained extremely fast while it was idle. My phone had about 50% left and an hour later it got all the way down to 14% without any usage. Wifi was on and I didn't get any notifications. I know there are background processes but to have that much battery drained is really strange.

General :: Quickest Way To Drain Battery?

Nov 17, 2011

What's the best (read: most efficient) way to drain the battery? this is after a new kernal or ROM and during a battery recalibration. I'm thinking WiFi off, GPS on, even better, searching for a signal; screen brightness at 100%, no auto dim; lots of apps in task manager; streaming internet video.

I can leave 4G on, with no 4G coverage within 50 miles of me that should suck some more power. I thought the vibration buzzing might be a pretty decent power hog, but a) not sure how to make it stay on, and 2) not sure I could put up with hearing it for that long.

General :: Battery Drain App With Time Log

Sep 16, 2012

Android app that will use a lot of battery (maybe using the phones functions like wifi etc) to drain the battery and then when the battery reaches 1 or 0% it logs how long the battery lasted.

This could then be used to compare battery life on a range of Android devices.

General :: ZTE Grand X In Battery Drain

Apr 11, 2014

There are many battery drain processes, applications. I saw that one of the biggest issues related to my ZTE Grand X In battery drain problems are mostly related to WiFi.

Explanation (all in sleep mode):

- When WiFi is off (and Airplane mode on) battery drain is 0-1 % during 1 hour;
- When WiFi is on (and Airplane mode on) and I am at the home Access Point environment, battery drain is 1-2 % during 1 hour;
- When WiFi is on (and Airplane mode on) and I am outside any Access Point environment, battery drain is 2-3 % during 1 hour;
- When WiFi is on (and Airplane mode on) and I am at an Access Point environment where Android is getting connection but does not get IP address so it is repeating obtain IP address process, battery drain is 4-5 % during 1 hour;

On ZTE Grand X In there is Android ICS 4.0.4.

I am emphasizing that I have Huawei Ascend Y300. It has Android JB, and it is almost not affected at all by mentioned WiFi issues, all the time, in any environment (I mentioned in this post) it has low battery drain.

As I saw there are some programs which are checking those WiFi different situations and then try to resolve issues. For Huawei, I simply do not need any program, everything is okay. For ZTE seems that there is no perfect program, I have to say there are nice programs, but still not perfect for resolving this issue.

What would be the best to do (on rooted Android smartphone) to change frequency (inside build.prop or any other file) of checking, obtaining IP address, to optimize that, not to have huge battery drain because of WiFi environment?

General :: Battery Drain Much Faster Than It Was Before?

Jul 5, 2012

i've just flash a new miui rom on my o2x. and i found that the battery drain much faster than it was before. last night i had 14% of battery left on my phone, and this morning it shut down due to out of battery. so i pluged in my wall charger while my phone was off. and when it showed the green fully chargeed bar i disconnected the charger and boot my phone in to CWM recovery to wipe battery stats. then i reboot the phone into android and u know what? the phone show 100% of battery only in 3 secconds and then it show 1% left. i connect the charger and the phone show that it's being charged? how can it charge a fully charged battery? and the charging speed is faster as light. it's has been charging about 15 mins now and it show 46% charged. may be google was wrong saying that batterystats.bin does not affect the measurement of battery level.

General :: Battery Drain For No Apparent Reason

Jun 1, 2013

Just recently, my captivate battery has been draining very fast. I've been going from 100% to 0 in about 8-12 hours. The main battery consumer is Android System. There are no processes that are keeping the phone on according to BatterBatteryStats. I loose about 7-8 percent every hour while it is in idle/deep sleep. If I enable the extreme setting on Juice Defender, it bumps up the battery life to about 45+ hours. But if I use juice defender, sending and receiving mms is very difficult. I tried it on another spare battery and it gave me the same results. This problem started earlier this week and was present when I first flashed a ICS rom back in June and hasn't gone away yet. I did not change any settings or flash anything new to my phone. One day it suddenly went from 100% to 40% in 5 hours and after I rebooted it dropped to 5% in a matter of minutes. I recalibrated the battery but that did not do anything.

General :: Completely Random Battery Drain?

May 11, 2013

My Xperia Arc S has a really, really weird battery draining issue. The battery drains in 10 hours on standby. It seems completely random and happens as long as the battery is in the phone (even when it's off). I was rooted and had a custom rom and kernel but I've switched back to the stock firmware and guess what: the battery still drains randomly. I also bought a new battery with twice the capacity of the old one but nothing changed.

Jun 12, 2012

I am a long-time lurker of XDA Forums and had an issue that I could not resolve on my own. I have upgraded my Xoom 4G to 4.0.4, stock, locked, not rooted. Factory reset recently and have tried everything to my knowledge to fix the following issue.The mediaserver is in a constant loop. There are no music files, pictures, anything on the device right now. Here are the few logs that have looped (I used OS monitor to find)

Code:
setup_dma
cpcap_audio_configure_power: regulator -> stanb
cpcap_audio_configure_power: regulator -> enable
[code]....

It happens every few seconds and keeps the tablet awake constantly. The battery is in a huge drain.
