    Astro killing my battery?

    On the 23rd I downloaded Astro, At night I turn my phone off and the next morning my battery was down 30%, It was down 30% again the next morning. Does this app do this to anyone else. On the 21st my phone was at 100% before I turned it off and on the 22nd in the morning it was still at 100%.

    Astro is not killing your battery. If you want to find out whats using your battery check your battery use in the about phone settings.

    Yeah , I've had Astro for a month now and upon viewing my batt useage, it doesn't appear to be much different. It must be another app.

    Ricks....are you using an app killer? Those things will suck you dry.
    Still rockin' the original DROID!!! It just keeps going & going & going....

    Re: Astro killing my battery?

    There are also several apps in the market that make battery info readily accessible, including what apps have been using it.
    I've had these mysterious drops overnight and wondered about it myself. The biggest drop I had was when I had monitoring enabled on System Panel App.
    The problem is all the battery info apps only tell you what's happened when the phone is on. How do you find out what makes it drop while the phone is off?
    I've also wondered if some battery loss while off overnight (or all day) is normal behavior.

    All I know is that this did not happen before. It all started the day I downloaded Astro. I had a few updates that day also, Skyfire, facebook touch and Fx Camera. Thats all that happened that day.

    When I first turn my phone on in the morning the battery use starts from the moment it is turned on. I cant see what happened over night. So I cant rule anything out.

    I don't think it's Astro either. It doesn't run all the time. My guess would be the Facebook update or something else that runs or syncs on its own.

    Wait...the phone is off and you're losing 30% of your battery? That's not an app issue, there's something else going on.

    Ok, the last couple of days after charging my phone at night and turning it completely off, as I do every day, I wake up the next morning and power up my phone and it was at 100%. This morning it was at 70%. What is happening again? The last time this happened, I uninstalled Facebook Touch and it was ok.
