    I think I need a little help calibrating my battery. When I 1st initially recalibrate my battery I will get between 28-40 hr before the battery is dead. Now after the the calibrating has finished and I recharge my battery the life drops down to 14-18 hr.



    The rom I am using is (Virtuous Unity 1.31.) and this is how I have been going about recalibrating my battery, I 1st charge until 100% and light is green, I then shut down phone and charge until light is green again. I then pull battery and put it back in and charge until light is green, I turn on the phone and charge until 100% and light is green. I use the app (battery calibration) and calibrate my battery. Like i said the 1st charge after calibration is great better then I ever expected out of this phone but after that is is down hill.


    I have found my self calibrating the battery now every time the phone dies just to have the great battery life, Am I doing something wrong is there a way I can get great battery life with out calibrating every time my phone dies?

    Boot into recovery and go into advance and wipe the battery stats. There also is a free app in the market for battery calibration. Hope it helps

    I actually downloaded this app but it requires that I root my phone first. Rooting seems to be impossible... Z4Root does not seem to work on the Droid Pro. I remain frustrated with the short battery life. Here it is after 5:00 pm on the west coast and my phone battery had about 10% remaining. If I am not any place where I can plug it in, I am out of luck :(

    Is there no other way to root that phone? But yes to that the phone requires root access in order to use that app.

    Just the first time. You run the calibration program after installing a new rom or restoring a backup. You only need to run it once at a 100% full charge. After you run it you unplug from charger and let the phone almost run out of battery completely before charging again. After that your bstats should be good to go.

    Thanks again for the info! I have used the (battery calibration) app before in other roms I have used but for one reason or another it did not want to work properly
    with my current rom. I can happily confirm that clearing my battery stats in CWR has done the job. I am able to charge my battery regularly now with out doing a calibration every time and still have great battery life.

    I wonder is there anyway to speed up the battery drain for calibration purposes for instance I charge to 100 percent then run battery calibration then is there a way to drain battery completely at a much faster rate then charge back to 100% I know it seems stupid to ask for a way to drain battery but just curious if there is a way..

    Turn your screen all the way up and start playing some music at full volume. That will drain it quick maybe play some Pandora radio.

    Be careful you don't overheat the battery though if trying to drain it.

    And running it that long with the speaker all the way up can damage the speaker. I would run it at lower volume. Also, if you have videos you can run, that would be faster than music.

    Just run the phone normal until the battery dies naturally. No need to overtaxed or overheat. When the phone completely dies from battery discharged, remove battery and put back in, and the key is too charge it with the phone powered off (don't turn phone on to charge). Then when fully charged, remove the battery again & put back in, and charge what little bit needs charge again in the powered off state. All Android phones charge better in a powered off state. My Charge says don't use the phone in a low powered state while charging. This like ritual can re-vitalize a battery.
