    Well i have had great battery service from the time i got this droid in Nov, but now it has gone south, at night i turn the droid off with a full charge and when i wake up its down 40% and this morning 50%.
    Ok so i figured it must be a bad battery but what i dont get is that it runs just fine while its powered up.

    Please advise.

    I'm amazed that you actually have that much left at the end of any day. I'm also amazed that you turn it off. ;)

    Other people have reported losing power with the Droid off. It's not a bad battery it's just that it's a very high tech phone and goes through a battery rather quickly. Best suggestion is to charge it at night, then you have full power for the day.

    Smoked Glass 5.0, can find no app that would do this.

    Hook what the hell are you talking about??? When I turn the droid off before sleep 10:pm i make sure it has a full charge, when i wake up 5:00am and power it up its down 50%

    If it drains that much battery overnight while it's off, but runs normally while it's on... why would you ever turn it off? :confused:
    I know I've seen other posts with people saying they were losing significant charge overnight while the phone was off. I don't know that I've seen any consensus on why or any solution, other than just letting it charge overnight.

    I'm having a hard time understanding this problem. Leave your phone on, and on the charger at night, problem solved. Now if you have a quickly discharging battery during the day, when it's on, then thats a problem.

    Mine also drained when it was turned off. It drained faster off than it did on so I haven't turned it off since November.

    Whats hard to understand about this? I never owned a smartphone before that i could not power off or had to run 24/7 to keep a charge.

    I admit a 50% loss is way too much. I kind of wondered why you were sticking your tongue out at me, lol now I see what happened.

    I have read other threads where people report huge losses like you're describing. I did some research so I could give you a helpful response this time and from I read it is a hardware issue if it doesn't pass this test:

    Simple test
    1. power phone to 100% - enable "Power Off" - wait 6 hours - check battery status --> mine typically drained from 100% to 70%.
    2. power phone to 100% - enable "Flight Mode" - wait 6 hours - check battery status --> mine held its charge 100%.

    If you get results similar then you probably want to exchange the phone.
