Bizarro Battery Drain
Howdy all. I'm not a big poster here but I am a big reader and I love this forum and hope someone can explain this.
Charged up the DROID to 100% yesterday and headed out to watch a few football games at the pub. Checked a few scores every now and then, and then about an hour later without touching it, I went to check something. Red light is flashing and battery life is at 5%.
Was getting ready to leave anyway, so I put the car charger on it and it comes up and says charge is 60%, and the icon shows about that.
Take it home and plug it in and four hours later, it is still at 60%. This morning, it is at 70%.
Turn the phone off and back on and it says CHARGED.
It has been fine all day today with no problems. Anyone else had this issue?
Thanks in advance. I appreciate the knowledge on this forum.
Get rid of your Anti Virus application. It will work fine without it and that is your problem. The update had a glitch.
No AV app installed, so I'm still mystified.
you install any other apps recently? or any apps had an update recently?
Actually, yes. During this period I installed SportsTapp becuz I had heard so much about it. When I saw the HUGE battery drain, I immediately uninstalled it. I had been checking scores with Live Scores. But the more I thought about it, I could not imagine that was the problem. Think so?
I use Sportstap on a daily basis since the first week i had my Droid and no problems. Whenever I really want to close it all i do is kill it with ATK.

I use ATK as well. The DROID came alive on November 27. No problems before or since. I know the display is the biggest battery drain, but there is no way it was on for an hour.
Is that sport app a "live update" app? Might have kept the data connection open and running until it was shut off (i.e. restart or something), just a thought.
I was haviing similar battery issues I deleted my ATK app cause I read several post sayingd its not needed to keep the software running well....however not killing apps kills battery! Re-downloaded it and battery power greatly improved..
