Razr Maxx: Charging & Battery problems
Is anyone else experiencing charging & battery problems w/their Motorola Droid Razr Maxx on ICS? I got it last night, and the first time I charged it I used the charger that came with the phone and it went up to 100%. I then unplugged it around 1:30 AM and went to sleep (the phone went to sleep, too). When I woke up at 8:30 AM, the battery had drained down to 20%. I haven't downloaded a task killer app yet, so I was thinking that that may be the problem: too many apps were running in the background and using power. Now I am trying to charge it with an old mini USB-cable I have at work, and it is not charging the phone at all, not even with it being turned off. The battery level indicator keeps showing 0%, and the USB cable is plugged into the wall, not a computer.
Should I only be using the charger that came with the phone. If so, then how does it explain the quick battery drainage overnight? Was it due to the lack of a Task Killer app? Please help!

Hi, thank you for replying to my post!

A Verizon Wireless customer service rep. told me that is probably why the battery drained so quickly. Actually, the Razr Maxx always wants to switch to WiFi when first using it, but then stops trying to switch after turning it off a few times.
I will recharge it tonight and see if anything unusual happens.
Thanks again! I will definitely post to the forums again if I have any trouble!
