Samsung I7500 :: Secret To Extended Battery Life

Nov 9, 2009

I cannot take credit for this as it's mentioned in multiple threads here, I would just like to bring it to the attention of anyone that doesn't already know.Disabling APN when not required has allowed my phone to run for 3 days and still be at 70% battery.To disable APN I installed the app WiSyncPlus from the app store.This app can be used for controlling network/data access on your phone in multiple ways, but all I use is the very simple APN toggle widget.I only toggle APN on when I require data access for web/email/market etc. then switch it straight back off. When APN is off you can still use the handset as an old school phone, for calls and texting, but not mms.There are multiple options in this app for controlling syncing etc. very much worth a look if you use your phone for email too.I also have my Samsung switchers widget app next to the APN widget, so if I have a wifi connection available I use this instead of enabling APN to surf the web etc.There is also a free app called APNDroid that can disable APN but I haven't tried this so can't comment on it's usability.

I have close contact with one of their employees, and she is willing to try to make it happen if enough people wants it.

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Icon Does Not Reflect True Battery Percentage

Aug 5, 2010

On my Vibrant I have both the standard "green battery" icon in my taskbar, as well as a downloaded battery percentage icon. I've noticed that the standard icon does a really poor job tracking the actual battery percentage. For example, the percentage will show 35%, but the icon will still appear two-thirds green.

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Just Draining

Aug 3, 2010

The last day or so after charging my phone to 100% overnight (phone is on when charging) and then putting in standby mode I'm losing like 5-7% of battery every hour.Over the weekend I was losing just 6% every 9 hours in standby mode. Today in 4 hours time I'm down to 65% already with mostly standby mode and a few minutes of browsing. I even had JuiceDefender installed since last night and it's not helping at all.To me it seems that something is in the background that is draining the battery though I when I check running services I don't see anything that shouldn't be there. When I was losing only 6% every 10 hours I did have a live wallpaper, weather/clock widget, and task killer. I didn't change anything on the next charge and now I'm constantly losing battery even in standby mode.

I have Wifi/GPS/background data off, brightness at minimum, no animations, etc. So pretty much followed all the battery saving pointers. I thought it was working good when I got just about 36 hours over the weekend with standby and moderate usage. So I don't know what has happened to my battery all of a sudden.The two times that I have managed to do 30+ hours on a single charge I had Advanced Task Killer running.However, even after doing 36 hours on one charge the next day even with ATK the battery started to drain a lot every hour in just standby. Anyone else having similar issues? I don't know what else to do at this time. I've uninstalled many of the apps thinking it might one of them causing the issue, but still having issues.

Samsung Vibrant :: Why Battery Life Sucks

Sep 15, 2010

Well after trying evereything under the sun to get better battery life out of this vibrant, including atk, turning 3G off, installing battery apps, rooting, setcpu, lag fixes, now custom roms today. I finally know why the battery blows. I simply can't stop messing with this thing that is why! It's always in my hand like a nice comfort toy. Reminds of when the iPhone came out and I was hacking that thing to pieces updating unlocking jail breaking selling buying.

Samsung Vibrant :: How To Got Awesome Battery Life?

Aug 24, 2010

This is a great thread to read on tips for saving power http://androidforums.com/samsung-vibrant/138944-how-save-power.html But this is something that people over look, its mentioned in a few places but I think it needs to be promoted more. I'm talking about, well I guess the word for it is conditioning the battery. Basically you drain the battery down till its dead(though in my case I went down to only 5%), turn the phone off and charge back up to full. One thing I noticed right away was how long it took for the phone to recharge. I have not hard data, but my experience up to that point was charging before didn't take that long. But now that I've done this, battery life is great. I've been listening to music for a couple of hours, some light browsing, viewed a youtube video, took a few pictures, and I have background sync on and I have both twitter and facebook installed with notifications set to their shortest time span(15min and 30min respectively). Currently at 8hrs since unplugged and at 61%. Not bad I'd say. I also have rooted my phone and installed the lag fix. I'm not running BH_MAN's cut down rom, I am still running stock.

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Life Is Horrendous

Sep 12, 2010

Wow, I'm not sure what it is but my battery life has been horrible for the past week or so. Very minimal usage has me at 20% in 5 hours. This is unacceptable. The most I do is browse the web or play the occasional game for a few minutes. Recently I installed launcher pro, is this program known to worsen battery life? I don't even have that many programs on this phone. I see peoples screen shots with 7 pages full of widgets, I have 3 pages and only two are "full" of widgets.

I'm rooted, on stock rom, bloatware removed, and overclocked @ 1.2Ghz. I'm aware that overclocking is harder on the cpu and can worsen battery life, but my phone isn't always running at full speed. I have all my profiles set on conservative. When the screen is off I have it set to clock at 600Mhz max, 100 minimum. Does anyone know what might be causing the problem?

I heard that some custom roms improve battery life. What else can I do to improve battery life? If launchers can cause bad battery I'll just use touchwiz, doesn't bother me. I'd rather have good battery life over good looking screens. Also, my screen is on the lowest brightness setting for most of the day. Today for example, I had my phone fully charged. Took it off the charger and texted my girlfriend for a bit. Browsed maybe 2 sites on the web. I took a 2 hour nap. Woke up and played Nova for 20 minutes. I check my charge and my.phone was at 30%! Unacceptable. It was off the charger for less than 5 hours!

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Indicator Is Wrong?

Jul 17, 2010

When I have about 50% battery left, the indicator in the notification bar makes it seem like I have 70-80% left. Does this happen to anyone else? Just wandering if anyone else noticed this or maybe it's just me. I've had it happen to my rooted G1 before and it was a software issue.

Samsung Vibrant :: Charging Battery From PC - Is Different Plugging USB Cable?

Sep 26, 2010

With the Samsung Vibrant there is the USB cable and the charger that you plug the USB cable into (to charge it from the wall). I was wondering if charging the battery from a PC was any different the plugging the USB cable into the wall charger? I would like to just keep the USB cable plugged into my PC and charge it that way but I want to know if it will get the same charge as it would with the wall outlet.

Samsung Vibrant :: USB Connection Drains Battery Fast

Aug 16, 2010

I got my Samsung Vibrant yesterday and like it a lot. However, I have what I thought was a faulty battery problem. The battery would not charge when hooking it up via USB to my desktop or AC.I took the phone to the Tmobile store and they swapped out the battery for me. The battery runs fine unplugged but as soon as I plug in the USB adaptor it starts losing a % of charge every 10 secs. As soon as I unplug it the draining stops. I called the Tmobile store again and they said it may be the USB adaptor. Well, I have a spare cable. I used it and the same thing happens.Is there something wrong with my phone? Is there a setting I need to adjust? Anyone experienced this yet?

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.

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Fully Charged Notification

Oct 14, 2010

Ok i promised I searched and didn't find a resolution to my question... Got my Vibrate on launch day. Love 95% of the phone. In a perfect world I would tweak a few things but by and large I am happy. HOWEVER after this most recent patch my battery full notification now also plays my notification sound. I.E. The very loud MP3 I have to wake me up in case I get a text in the middle of the night, now is going off at 3am to say "HEY battery is charged!!" Personally I would like to get rid of the battery notification all together, but I can work around everything but it playing that MP3. I know I can silence the phone but I WANT to know if I receive a text in the middle of the night. If it isn't possible to disable this alert I will simply not charge my phone at night so I really don't need alternative ideas, just to know if it is possible AND to provide feed back to someone this is less than an optimal situation if not.

Samsung Vibrant :: Leaving GPS On At All Times Drain Battery?

Sep 2, 2010

So I was reading forums on how to better my Vibrant (hence so many posts by me in the last few days, ). I came across this somewhere online last night and again today on forum.xda-developers.com

Before I apply this on my Vibrant (I'm on page 6 reading user posts) I wanted to know if it's a good idea to leave GPS on at all times?

Does it drain the battery?
Does some other apps post your location on the web (like how facebook 'places' is starting to do now)?

Samsung Vibrant :: How To Recondition Or Improve Battery Life?

Oct 18, 2010

I'm using the standard 3.7V Li-ion battery that came with my phone, and i'm finding that the battery drainage is quite high. I've had my phone for about 2 months now. I'm running a couple of programs that run all the time - Executive Assistant, and Widgetlocker.I also installed JuiceDefender which is set to enable data connection for 3mins for every 15 mins.
My battery seems to last about 8 hours with not much use. (i checked email and sent a few text messages today)When looking at Battery usage, it seems that the screen brightness is what's taking up most battery, but i have this set to the dimmest in Settings. I also have widgetlocker that locks my screen 1 minute after idle.Can someone please guide me on:

1) what other settings i could check to figure out why my battery is draining quickly
2) how to recondition or improve my battery life (i'm not rooted)
3) give me some idea of how long your batteries last?

Motorola Droid X :: Where To Buy Extended Battery?

Oct 12, 2010

I love my Droid X and I get awesome battery life under the right conditions. Using Tasker extends this even further, but even without a tasker profile today, I unplugged at 8am and at 4pm I was at 80 percent with moderate usage. This was after doing a full cycle charge last night. However, I'm greedy for more and I want to buy the extended battery but not sure where I can find it for a good price.

HTC Incredible :: Venison Extended Battery

Jul 29, 2010

My dilemma is not with Android, but the Dinc. I absolutely love Android and will definitely be staying on Verizon and with a Droid phone. I have, however, had the Incredible since launch day. I love pretty much everything about this phone, except the battery life. I really cannot stand the constant need to be near a charger for fear of my phone dying. Should I buy the Verizon extended battery for another $60 and deal w the clunky bulk or get the Droid X or Samsung Fascinate. I think i can get a good price for this phone on eBay w it being an original in mint condition and there still a shortage. What should I do? Is it too early to go for the Samsung? I will miss HTC Sense.
