Is this app worth the purchase? I haven't had great luck with battery life on ICS so far. Seems like most people are getting good results but my ICS results are nothing like what I was getting on .905. I did a FDR before going to. 232 and then I used HOB to go to .247. I've erased tons of apps hoping to eliminate the culprit but its still not even comparable to what I got on .905. I'm just wondering if this app is worth the money and if it will be of any help. I realize the app is only $3 which is cheap enough to give it a shot if it'll actually be of value. BTW I have a Moto extended battery.Originally Posted by bbtkd
What do you mean by bad? Since getting an extended I don't really worry or pay attention (just need to get through day) but I generally get a full day and put on charger at night by 10 or so. Here is today's use (if it attaches). I had it plugged in to go back to .246 then on 15 ride home.

I downloaded GSam and now I've got another question. When I checked out the apps that are draining the battery the top thing listed was "kernel" and when I opened that up it said fancy Widgets on the top line. Fancy Widgets was on the list as well but it only shows 1% where kernel is showing 36%. I'm not quite sure what kernel is referencing but id like to fix that if anyone has any suggestions. If it means I have to get rid of FW then I will but I've really liked that app for a clock.Originally Posted by bbtkd
So far this morning i've had the phone off the charger for 1 hour and 20 minutes and I haven't used it at all and the battery is down to 93% and under App Usage its shows that 62.5% of the battery was consumed by kernl. I don't see how this can be normal. I used to get a full days worth of moderate to heavy usage with no prolem at all and now I'm needing to charge my battery before I go home from work just to have enough to last the rest of the evening. Is it possible something just didn't sit right when I loaded up .247 and I possibly need to re-install using HOB?
