    i don't know whats wrong i can be fully charged and use it and my battery will drop from 99 to 60 within an hour and will be dead within like 2 or 3 hours...its so strange, i usually get 7 to 27 hours depending on use... not 3 hours doing nothing

    is there anyway to see if an app is causing a conflict with widget locker? i am getting intense drainage with it on but the general opinion is i'm the only one...its annoying going from 100% charge to 60% in less than 2 hours without touching the phone...and my battery is constantly hot...i'm befuddled.

    What do you have on the widgetlocker homescreen? Widgets that are trying to pull data? Constantly updating?

    Also, make sure its not in "easy wake" mode. I.E. all hardware buttons wake the device. I have my phone in my pocket and it would constantly causing pressure on the button, waking the screen in my pocket.

    i have the vilingo widget, and a premier league widget but i turned up the automatic update and i have the news republic widget but i also turned off it's automatic update, extended controls widget... plus one app icon that pulls in no data and the date and time widget that comes with it.

    easy mode is on but its not being a problem for me...i keep the phone in its case and holster all of the time....

    i'm going to try switching to my extended battery and see what happens....then see if i remove the widget that use data...maybe they r still calling for data somehow...

    very frustrating

    I found this old (well not so really old) thread with my same problem. I had horrible battery life on my new bionic to the point it wouldn't even go 6 hours without a charge and that is unacceptable, I was ready to go back to my iphone. In desperation I did a factory reset and slowly started putting apps back on it in roughly reverse order that i put them on the first time. Battery life was great after 14 hours of regular to heavy (for me) use I still had 30 to 40 percent left. Now this I could live with. When I got to widget locker horrible battery life came back. Today, 3 hours and 55 minutes and it was down to 50 percent. I uninstalled it and charged it back up to 100 percent with a car charger and after 10 hours of heavy use, lots of app downloading, zynga type game playing, skype experimenting, map browsing and at least an hour of voice calls I am still at 30 percent. widget locker never showed up in any battery monitors that I tried.

    I love this app!! I need this app!! But I cant have this short battery life.
    I will email the app creators hopefully I can have my widget locker back soon.

    Ive tried WidgetLocker several times on multiple devices running all different ROMs. it ALWAYS seems to noticeably reduce my battery life. i like the app but its just not worth it to run it for me.
    Later,
