Jan 13, 2010

My Eris, just updated on Monday for the lock up from sleep Anyway, I am a low user of the phone and keep, wifi, Mobile data off unless I am using it I have noticed the last 2 days the battery life is improved. yesterday, phone on at 6am off at 11pm, 65% left, no data used, few Txt messages and about 45 min of phone calls Today so far, on at 6am, WIFI, Mobile data off, one 6min call and one txt, at 9am, still 100% battery. turned Mobile Data on at 9am now it is 11:50am and battery is still 100% my on time is 5:45, awake time is 8 min (2%) this is typical for me. I don't have email set to push, I refresh when I want it. I also use Advanced Task Manager. So maybe the issue that was fixed was also causing a battery drain and is fixed now?

May 26, 2010

My battery seems to be draining about 1/3-1/2 faster than it normally does over the past week or so. I'm trying to figure out if it has something to do with any apps I've installed recently. Is there a way I can figure out which apps are doing the most damage to the battery?

HTC Droid Eris :: Stuck On 3 Skateboarding And Battery Drain

Jun 22, 2010

My Eris is always getting stuck on the screen with the 3 skateboarding droid dudes. Here's the story of what happened and what i have done so far. I have an unrooted Droid Eris, OS 2.1 OTA been working quite well for the past few months now few weeks ago, my battery was suddenly drained for no apparent reason (it was idle), no programs were running in the back at all it went back to normal after i turned it off and charged it. It happened again to day and when i tried to turn it back on, i got stuck on the 3 skateboarding droids. So i tried battery pull, x123121 didn't work. i did the "hold vol+send+power", -recovery: it gives me this red triangle with exclamation point, i only found errors regarding this on rooted phones while on this screen, i pressed vol up+power, and tried all the option there and nothing worked, it still gets stuck on the skateboarding droids then i held the "vol+send+power" and tried all the other options there, and it stuck on same screen.

HTC Droid Eris :: Will Allowing Networks To Detect Position Drain Battery

Jan 6, 2010

Ok what I want is for whenever I move from one place or another ...maybe driving 30 mins or an hour the weather automatically updates to that location without me having to manually refresh.what do I need to turn on for that in the location services

"Use Wireless Networks/Mobile Networks" Location determined by wifi and or mobile networks
"Location Settings" Allow network to detect your position
"Enable GPS Satellite" requires more battery

These are the three options I can check...the first one is checked right now.if I check the second one will it update the weather automatically or is the first one all that is required and it says the battery will be drained in the third option but what about the 2nd option.

HTC Droid Eris :: Google Navigator - Battery Usage Tip

May 16, 2010

I did some testing with the Navigator yesterday and I have to say it's absolutely awesome. I'm not sure if anyone has posted this, couldn't find any mention of it, but I want to share my battery usage experience with it as well as some other cool things I noticed.

Very cool battery saver:
I used it for a 15-minute drive, keeping it only in the Notification Bar. When you are in the Navigation app, you can press the Home softkey to go back to your home screen. This keeps Navigator working in the background, but it is not drawing the maps and using the screen. You can press the Power button to put your phone to sleep, and the voice actually still talks to you and tells you when to turn. And even better, I started this trip with 76% battery and ended with 76% battery.

Now, the not-so-cool.
I used it for a 30-minute drive, keeping the screen on and letting it show me the map the entire way. I started the drive with 54% battery ended with 34% battery. So definitely keep it on the charger if you are using it for a long drive. But another awesome thing I noticed. I made a phone call toward the end of my destination, just to see what would happen. I used the Home key to back out of the Navigator (but keeping it in the background, as I said above), then made my call as normal. The Navigator still gave me directions while I was on the phone. It came through the earpiece now, so the other person doesn't hear it. How freaking cool is that?

HTC Eris :: Installed Nonsensikal ROM - Battery Drain

HTC Eris :: Will Screen Brightness Setting Drain Battery Quicker?

Oct 18, 2010

Does everyone keep their screen brightness on auto or do you set it manually. I notice when it's on auto, sometimes the screen doesn't light up all the way. Will setting it manually drain the battery quicker? I notice in my battery usage that it says display is at like 74%. Not sure if that's normal or not. I have the brightness set at about 1/4 of the way up.

Motorola Droid :: Battery Wipe (inconsistent Battery Drain)?

Nov 13, 2010

Rooted Droid 1, running LFY 1.9 with it's 1ghz kernel, SPRecovery. Had a weird issue recently; the phone displayed that my battery life was at 40%, then probably ~30 minutes later it was down to 20%. I wasn't using it during that time, I just unlocked the screen to check something. Anyway, I opened my browser and within a minute or two I got the "15% battery life remaining" message, prompting me to connect my charger. I decided I would allow the phone to just die and shut itself down. So I waited ~45 minutes and it went down to 10%, then almost immediately to 5%. I turned on the GPS just to make it drain faster... I watched a one-hour television show and when it was over, I glanced over to the phone to see if it had died - nope, still on. I turned the LED light on, leaving the GPS running for ~25 minutes and it finally powered down. Then I plugged it in to charge and left the room. Came back in about 2.5 hours later and picked up the phone - it was very hot. Unlocked the screen and checked SetCPU and it was running ~135?F but it immediately started cooling down. It was fully charged, however so I unplugged it. I went to bed shortly thereafter and the battery life displayed 90% as I set the alarm to wake me up the next morning. I happened to wake up shortly before the alarm was set to go off and I picked up the phone to disable the alarm and noticed the red 'charge me' light blinking - unlocked the screen to see 5% and just then it powered itself down.

TL;DR -- Phone only got hot that one time, phone hasn't gone dead in stand-by mode again like it did that night. Battery drains at a seemingly normal rate based on my regular use from 100% down to 40%, then it rapidly drains after that, always skipping 30% and when it gets down to 5% it stays alive for quite a long time under heavy load. Is there a way to 'teach' the phone how to check and calculate actual and remaining battery % and to display it correctly? Is it kernel-related? I heard somewhere about doing a 'battery wipe' but I am unsure what that entails and searches are proving fruitless for me so far.

HTC Droid Eris :: Hour X Hour Battery Usage (Manually Update)

Dec 12, 2009

I manually updated my Eris the other night and I must say I am happy with the update, it has really helped with my battery. What I have done is installed Battery Indicator by Darshan Computing. This puts a battery percentage indicator in the notifications area. I have set the built in timer for an hour and when it goes off I make a note of the battery in form of a percentage. Here is what I have so far.

Hour/Percentage of Battery Remaining
1/98
2/85
3/82
4/80
5/77
6-70

HTC EVO 4G :: Cell Phone Transmitter & Battery Drain

Jun 3, 2010

A cell phone is a transmitter just like a radio tower, and higher power is required to send the signal farther. Every modern cell phone automatically adjusts its transmitter power based on reception. Fewer bars means faster battery drain when you are using your phone. Switching to 2G will not necessarily save battery. If you have a 3G tower nearby, then your battery will last longer. And if you have a spotty 4G connection, you'd best plug in, or don't use it. However, given equal signal strength, a 4G signal is MORE efficient per byte than 3G.

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Drain Phenomenon On Phone?

Oct 14, 2010

Is it me or anyone else experiencing the rapid drain of battery after the recent OTA update from T Mobile for the Vibrant. Prior to the OTA update, my Vibrant charge used to last 2-3 days of normal use before I had to charge. Now the battery life is considerably shortened and from 100%, it goes to below 20% in 12-15 hrs, most of it is idle time. My normal usage has not changed at all before and after the update but I am experiencing this rapid battery drain phenomenon on my Vibrant.

HTC Incredible :: Phone Running HOT W/ Rapid Battery Drain

Aug 15, 2010

About a week ago, at random times, my Incredible will become "Incredibly" hot in my pocket, and the battery begins to drain at a rapid rate (from nearly 90%+ to <20% in an hour).This seems to be accompanied by an icon resembling a "refresh" symbol at the top of the screen (a circle consisting of two arrows).I can't determine any common denominator as to when this takes place, it seems pretty random.I added Google voice and Shazam to my phone just prior to this problem beginning, but have noticed no usage relation. Please feel free to direct me to another thread / lock if this has already been discussed.

HTC EVO 4G : Unusual Battery Drain - Phone Won't Go Into Sleep Mode

Nov 13, 2010

Last two days my battery has been draining like crazy and my phone won't go into sleep mode. I charge before I go to sleep and take it off when it's done and it will die before I wake up in about 8 hours .
Use to be at like 97 or 95 when I get up

I've gotten pretty good at managing my battery life , I use superpower and juiceplotter to monitor it .normally I waist less than 1% an hour when not in use and the phone is asleep

I've deleted every app I've installed since 1 day before this started. Only thing unusual I see in my logs is this message (Adding Alarm{464294e8 type 2 com.android.phone })

And this

Alarm triggering: Alarm{46354990 type 2 com.google.android.location} Adding Alarm{465bbb80 type 2 com.google.android.location }non stop repeatedly every second when phone is not in use.

Samsung Captivate :: Battery / Phone Causing Quick Drain?

Aug 1, 2010

So I have had my phone since before launch and I have noticed the battery drain as others have but here is my question. Do you think it is the battery or the phone?

If I can go to the store and just get a new battery that would be nice because I have rooted and customized and downloaded apps and if it is the battery that is causing the problem it would be so much more convenient to get a new battery.

HTC Incredible : Battery Drain - App - Phone Was Locked In Awake Status

May 4, 2010

Upon starting up my phone was locked in awake status and I couldn't figure out why.

So against my will, I've downloaded ATK.

I noticed that upon killing ANY application that was loaded by the system at start up (besides ATK) would allow the phone to sleep.

So FM Radio, Footprints, Docs to Go....

Killing just one of those or I imagine just about anything else that loaded from the start, stopped my wakelock.

Also I noticed by putting the phone into airplane mode, and then taking it out, seemed to work as well.

General :: Micromax A110 - Phone Not Charging After Battery Drain

Feb 24, 2013

I have a Micromax A110 with the details in my signature. I flashed the ROM of a different Jellybean phone since it was the same and rebranded model.

After my phone drained out of battery, it wasn't charging even though I connected it with the charger. The phone wasn't being detected through USB also. So, I used an external battery charger and the pushed it in the device and it started up.

Motorola Droid X :: Battery Drain Due To Software Bug With GPS?

Jul 30, 2010

When I ran it, my phone had been unplugged for about 12 hours and I found that Spare Parts showed my phone to have been Running (not sleeping) for 100% of that time. After being methodical and getting data points after opening various programs, I determined that after I opened any program that accessed the GPS, the phone no longer would go into sleep mode. To get the phone to start sleeping again, all I have to do is toggle GPS off and then back on again. It's completely reproducible every time on my phone.

Now, I don't know what kind of effect this will have on battery life, but seems like it probably would have some effect. If others can test this and see if it affect you at all, it'd be helpful to see if there's a potential major software bug here or if it's just something with my phone.

Easiest way to test is to start with a fresh reboot with GPS toggle on, install Spare Parts, plug in the phone for a second (to reset the counters), let it sit sleeping for a few minutes, then read the Running % in Spare Parts. Should be pretty low. Plug in the phone to reset the counters again. Then start Google Maps or any other program that will activate your GPS. Close that program and then let the phone sit idle for a few minutes. Check Spare Parts running time again and, for me, it's pegged at 100%. It stays like that until I toggle the GPS off or reboot the phone.

Motorola Droid :: GPS Battery Drain / When Plugged In

So I've noticed since I've gotten my phone that even when its plugged in (100 percent battery to start) if I use navigation for 45 min or so the battery will drain to around 80 percent. I don't understand how its doing this if its plugged in and the battery has the charging icon on there.

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?
