    Horrible battery life out of nowhere? Bad battery?

    Over the past couple days my battery has recently just been terrible. I go 3.5 hours, screen on for 22min an my battery is at 60%. I use to get around 14 hours out of my battery an now its not even close. I haven't changed anything recently, still running BB.4. Could my battery just be near its end an its just starting to deteriorate now? I know batteries get worse the more they are charged an lose their life. I've had my droid since release. Is this possible?

    These batteries are only good for something like 500-700 charge cycles, so maybe it's time for a new one. I think they're pretty cheap.

    You could try another kernel/OS or at the very least reboot into safemode and see if the problem goes away.

    There has been some new games but nothing that I would think would lead to this dramatic battery decrease. Yeah it could be that time where I need a new battery, because this is horrible I barely used my phone an its this low. Battery usage doesn't show any unusual apps that aren't usually there, so I don't think its any app. How do you boot into safe mode on a droid?

    okay thanks. I'm thinking I'm just going to get a new battery. I can't see what else would be the reason for this.

    I don't know, it could be an app. It could be some instability in BB.

    Maybe charge it up, boot into safe mode, and let it sit off the charger over night. If it's still got most of it's charge in the morning then you know it's an app.

    What do your battery statistics look like?...percentages and what's using power

    Display is at 26%
    Voice call is 14%
    There's no app that appears to be taking battery. I looked in running services and there seems to be things running that I don't use?

    The running services are probably OK...I think.

    Your percentages look pretty reasonable, I suppose, since there's nothing that stands out.

    Oh well, maybe you do need a new battery.

    If you are looking for a new battery, Verizon has a slim extended battery for the D2 that works perfectly with the D1. It is 1820mah. It will set you back $50 and the battery cover will be blue, but you will have extra life and a new battery.
