The only recent change has been the Facebook update and an AK Notepad update...

It's the Facebook update isn't it?

Battery life down to 2-3 hours with little to no use.

Sprint HTC Hero :: How do I determine what is killing my battery life?


Sprint HTC Hero :: Recharging Battery - Want To Make Sure Not Killing

Dec 31, 2009

I know that it used to kill batteries when you would recharge it before it was low and needed to be charged. I also heard it was bad to take an item off of the recharger before it was at 100%. Does any of that hold true with today's batteries, meaning the one that is in the Sprint Hero? Can I recharge it at night if the battery is at 48% and have it not hurt the battery or it's life? Just wondering because I have a charge at work and home and wait till it is in need of charging. That is sort of a pain, I would rather turn the phone off at night and charge it and have a fresh and fast phone in the morning.

Motorola Droid X :: Poor Reception Area - Killing Battery Life - Disable 3G?

Aug 2, 2010

I am currently on a new client where it's constantly on 1X and occasionally switches back to 3G with 0 bars, then back to 1X. I got in to work at 8:30 am and by 5:00 the battery was at 30%. Battery Manager shows Cell Standby as 21% of the battery usage. I had about a 15 minute call this morning (presumably on 1X, I didn't check) and have not used the Internet at all for the rest of the day. This is obviously unacceptable. On my Droid Eris, there was a way to turn off the Mobile Network and use only 2G/1X for calls. I have researched and not found a similar option for the Droid X (Why would Motorola leave this out?) Does anyone know what my options are? I've heard you can go into the #*#*INFO*#*# menu and set it to 2G only, then restart, but that would be a pain to do every morning.

Sprint HTC Hero :: How To Get A Better Battery Life?

Jan 22, 2010

So, I rooted and installed fresh 1.1 a few days ago. The question I have is how is everyone getting better battery life, because mine has not changed, even a little? The speed has increased, but it's nothing to write home about. I guess I would like to hear from other fresh users to see what you have done to get more speed and better battery life and your overall experience with fresh so far. Don't get me wrong I love the look and it is faster. I'm just wondering if there is more that I can do to make it better?

Sprint HTC Hero :: GPS And Battery Life

Mar 1, 2010

A month or so back I started running mine with GPS toggled ON all the time. (For apps to find a lost Hero it seemed the only effective way to find it was if GPS was on). GPS is not powered (or maybe very low powered?) UNLESS the GPS Symbol is showing at top of screen?

I've noticed NO difference in battery life with GPS toggled ON vs OFF over the last month. GPS (when toggled ON) appears to be actually turned on or off by particular Apps that use it.
Anyone? Am I correct?

It seems to be "common knowledge" and I think Android even says to toggle it OFF to save battery life but this seems to be not true?

I DO have an App that does turn GPS on but does NOT turn it off when I exit, which does drain the battery until I manually correct, which could be a problem, but I do see the GPS icon so I know it's on and draining.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Improve The Overall Battery Life?

Feb 12, 2010

I know there are thousands of posts on this forum discussing how to improve the overall battery life of the Hero. Most people advise others to root the phone or buy a larger battery. However, most people forget that there's a lot you can do without taking such drastic measures. I've found that simple lifestyle changes here and there can turn into huge power savers for your Hero. So here's my quick guide on how to maintain a battery charge.

NOTE: Take all of these tips with a grain of salt. None are guaranteed to drastically boost battery life individually, but the gains will be noticeable the more steps you utilize.

1. Use the Best App for the Job. The stock apps that come with your Hero may do the job, but many have bugs and issues that place a severe strain on your battery. See this post to find a comprehensive list of alternative apps (as well as some must-have advice) that may help to improve the overall efficiency of your phone..................

Sprint HTC Hero :: Getting Longer Battery Life

Dec 3, 2009

First, I've got to give credit to the other post for figuring out the main reason for the short battery life I was getting. If you're already getting good battery life - ignore this post.It only took me two months to figure it out (I had this phone since the pre-release Friday from Best Buy), but the main culprit was the HTC clock with weather widget (or the TWC app). By process of elimination I tried literally everything but ultimately figured out that it was either the default HTC clock widget w/ weather or the "The Weather Channel" widget, or both. I got rid of both and my battery life has improved dramatically.I used to unhook my phone charger at 6:30 a.m. and my battery would be less than 15% by 5 p.m. with moderate use (few texts, few calls of 5 minutes each, and three emails pulling every 15 minutes). I tried lengthening the time interval to an hour for email pulling, changed the "default" mail account to my yahoo account from my activesync exchange account, unchecked "always on mobile", "background data" sync for google, no gps, no wifi, etc. but still couldn't last a 15 hour day without the battery dying. I did the SMS fix, got the MR update and still got crappy battery life despite never exceeding 18% awake time.Finally, last night I got rid of the HTC default widget clock w/ weather as well as the weather channel widget and today I went through 15 hours with heavy usage (more calls, longer calls, more text messages, and more emails than normal) and still at 30%.While this isn't earth shattering, it is a significant improvement than before. Hope this helps somebody.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Actual Use Battery Life?

Oct 13, 2009

Now that the Hero has been out there for more than a few days, how about a daily rundown of battery life. Day 1: Fully charged to 100% at 10PM. Left on overnight and the next morning was at 78%. Used moderately just trying to figure stuff out and adding a few apps and had 23% by 3:30PM. Day 2 : Fully charged to 100% at 9PM. Turned off. Woke up to 100% at 4:45AM. Used sparingly (3-4 quick 2 min calls, a couple texts, and jumped on web 1-2 times for less than 2 mins ea) and by 4PM had 28%.

Day 3: Charged to 100% at 8PM. Turned off at 10PM with 99% showing. Woke up at 4:45AM with 99% and made a couple quick calls, sent 2 texts before 11AM and was at 78%. Then added 40 contacts to phone and by 2PM it dropped to 38%. By 4:30PM it was on life support at 11%. Day 4: Charged to 100% at 10PM and left on overnight. Started day at 7:45AM with 89%. Used moderately for similar tasks above and now at 3:15PM its at 65%. So there you go. I'm not really happy with the battery life, but this is my first true "smartphone" so it might just be the norm. Seems a bit much to be struggling to keep above 30-40% battery life after only being on for 12 hours.

Sprint HTC Hero :: App To See % Battery Life Left?

Mar 5, 2010

I can see my green battery icon at the top next to the time, but I'm reading folks who are saying they have a certain % of battery life left....are you estimating, or is there somewhere I can see this? Or is it an app? Or are you all rooted?

confessed newbie overwhelmed by possibilities trying to configure it all out.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Battery Life - POP Vs IMAP?

Nov 22, 2009

IMAP is supposed to be more efficient (and thus may save battery life), but either way on the Hero you must tell the phone to check for mail at a specified time interval (for example every 5 min.) Thus it seems that in this particular implementation neither POP or IMAP would be more efficient than the other. Anyone tested this in terms of battery usage on the Hero?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Not Satisfied With Battery Life On 9 / 18 Nightly?

Sep 20, 2010

My battery life is...well you read the title. I went from 100% to 78% in less than 30 minutes this morning. I'm on CM6, Collins battery tweak with the min, max configs at his suggestions. I checked my running apps, installed ATK to see if there was an misbehaving apps, nothing. I have to read up on how to use spear parts but under "battery history" most of the bars are in blue except the programs under "since last unplugged" & "since boot" (I just did both) so I guess that's good. My battery was excellent with the 9/11 nightly (my 1st flash) so I'm thinking of flashing back but nobody else has mentioned having this problem since flashing 9/18 so I'm thinking I did something wrong but can't pinpoint it. Yes I wiped before I flashed, reconfiged Collins. Everything is basically the same from the 9/11 flash to the 9/18 flash, meaning I didn't add any apps. Also my benchmark went from 4.8 to 1.45 (phone is still very fast though???) Any suggestions?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Overclocking Bad For CPU / How It Affects Battery Life?

Jun 29, 2010

I realize how much faster the hero can be when its wimpy processor is overclocked. I would imagine that ocerclocking would be bad for it though, to push the CPU faster than its made to be, but most people don't mind it. I'm wondering, realistically, if it is hard on the CPU to be overclocked and also how it affects battery life. Keep in mind, I'm talking about overclocking the ROMs made to be like zen, aloysius, purehero, busted, etc.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Markedly Improve Battery Life?

Nov 9, 2009

I disabled the auto backlight. I then manually adjust it depending on my needs. I spent the whole day at airports going from Pittsburgh to Denver to see the Steelers beat the Broncos tonight and I still had 25 % battery after multiple calls, dozens of texts and surfing the web for many hours. I also used handscent for sms. The autobacklight is set very bright. I am trying to find a good app to add as a widget to quickly manually adjust the brightness. I found one but it did it in too big of steps.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Battery Life On Latest Leak

May 18, 2010

I have to tell you, I am getting hella better battery life out of the leaked update versus 1.5 on the Hero. I am sitting at 1.5 days since last charged, and am at 50% battery. On the old firmware, I am possibly close to dead at this point. I wonder if the native support in 2.1 for the Sprint network is making that large a difference, or if wiping the phone somehow purged an energy guzzler from my machine. Whatever it is, I wondered if anyone else who updated is noticing a similar gain in battery longevity.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Updated To 1.56 - Battery Life Noticeably Better

Nov 22, 2009

First off, love this phone! Before the 1.56 update, battery life sucked, but awake time was around 20-39%. After update, battery life is noticeably better, but awake time is never under 100%. I did a factory reset and it went down to 85%, but is back up to 100%. So, should I just ignore the awake issue since battery life has improved or should I take it back for a new hand set? I can go about 8 hours with moderate use and its about 70-80% battery life.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Improvement In Battery Life By Turning Off Sense UI

Apr 5, 2010

I've never had "bad" battery life but have always felt that the battery does die pretty quick. I'm text up to 100 texts a day tops, pretty heavy internet (checking work emails all day), a few phone calls here and there. Maybe some music here and there, nothing to justify the less than desirable battery life. Spare parts never showed anything out of line either. Rooting was something I had no desire to do (I tried it and found it useless for me). Like a few others, I'm patiently waiting for *whispers* THE UPDATE. Anyways I turned off Sense the other day and DRASTICALLY improved my battery life. Sense ON- wifi off, gps off, location off, mobile internet off. pretty much EVERYTHING off. By 1pm my battery was usually 50-60%. By 10pm my battery was dead. Sense OFF - wifi on and mobile internet on ALL DAY. Now by 5pm my battery is usually around 70%. Running music/HEAVY internet for the rest of the night leaves my battery at 35% by night end.
