    Anyone with Battery issues after 2.2 take a look at your processor activity. Is your phone warm or hot? Then its running all the time. Try system panel (lite). be you will find your processor pegged at 100% and running at 500+mhz. I did and a hard reset seemed to fix it.

    #1 stop using task killers. they are bad for the phone and you don't need them. #2, froyo is a lot faster with a lot more enhancements, meaning the battery will not be as good. my battery seems to run down pretty fast. i go from %100-%60 within 5 hours of heavy use

    I am having the same problem, upgraded to froyo manually, battery lasts only about half of what it used to. After reading this thread I uninstalled the task killer and I can NOT say that it is much better. Please help

    I've also seen a dramatically reduced battery life. It is not due to different phone use after the update, as it's been consistent across a few days of work where I hardly use my cell at all. I used to be between 60 and 80% after a full day of work...now it's nearly dead by the time I get home.

    Regarding the known battery killers with 2.2
    • I don't have any task killing apps
    • I don't have a facebook account and don't have the app running

    I'm on rooted FRG22.

    My top 2 battery users are Display (my brightness is set to the lowest level with 30 second screen timeout) and Android System.

    Has anyone with a similar setup found anything that helps?

    vanepelw, read the threads. Something on the update is note playing right. fast fix. do a factory reset (maybe tray flashing it again to be sure) and add one app back at at ime to see what one does not like 2.2.
    android system should not be 2nd on battery use.

    I have also noticed mine going from 100% to 70% rather quickly, but it takes twice the time to get to 40%. I also have no complaints about battery usage. I charge it every night without fail. I accept that and am completely ok with it.

    My battery life has dropped significantly since the 2.2 upgrade. It was fully charged at 5:30 last night. Did not use it all. When I came to work it was completely dead. Had to plug it in and start charging it. This never happened before. I am also experiencing heat build up as well. Something is running in the background that didn't before.

    Maybe I'm just lucky. I did the manual update. There has been no change in my battery usage and my phone only gets warm watching youtube. My Android OS is 4th at 7%.
