    TERRIBLE battery life

    tl;dr - 8 hours of battery life. wtf.



    For some reason, I have absolutely horrible battery life.

    I fully charged it at about 2pm today.

    I downloaded a few apps, did a little browsing, not much texting today. I listened to Pandora for a while, and I had my facebook and twitter widgets open, and this one for gaming news widget, and played a game for maybe 10 minutes

    8 o'clock rolls around, and I have to go into work for a couple hours. My battery is at 45%, I'm like "Ok this will last me until I get off work at 12."

    I get to work 8:45, turn on Pandora, send a few texts, and just let Pandora run.

    10:30pm my phone dies...So I went through a full battery in 8 hours. How is this possible?


    And I was killing tasks that I wasn't using with Astro.

    Pandora is a huge battery drainer.

    Is it? I love it too much. I've grown bored of my iTunes collection so this is great to listen to at work

    Is Slacker as bad or any better?

    All the radio apps are battery drainers. Why don't you just bring in a charger to work? Also, you can turn off auto sync if you want. Turn off wifi and bluetooth when not using it. turn down your brightness

    I have it on Auto Brightness, and I never have WiFi on unless I'm at home, never have bluetooth on either

    I bring a charger, but idk, I'd still like to not have to worry about that

    Is this battery worth it?

    Try turning it down to the lowest brightness.
    Also, IMO I don't think that is worth it because you can get another standard battery off amazon for 8 bucks instead of spending 60.

    Seidio has had some customer service issues in the past...search the forum and see if you can find a rant or two.

    Haha indeed. When I first got my phone my battery lasted almost? 6ish hours. Can't remember, but it died SO fast.

    If you wanna dive into root, undervolted kernels will extend your battery alot. Pandora is still a thirsty app, but it gets more manageable with a good kernel. The native Froyo kernel is even better than stock 2.1 for battery life. Another battery saver is actually wifi. A poor 3G signal eats more juice than the wifi radio does.

    I had the same problem until I decided to uninstall some apps I had downloaded over the last week or so. Must have been a bad app because that solved the problem. Battery life is back to normal.
