    Lately my battery has been dying rather quickly, compared to normal. Today it was sitting unused for 7 hours and it was almost dead after I picked it up. I used to be able to use it moderately all day and still have a 60% charge.

    I'm running bugless beast v.06 if that helps.

    I heard you could somehow reset the perimeters but I don't know how to do that. Thanks!

    Once in a while, after a Market Update of several apps, mine does the same thing. It seems like a couple reboots fixes it. It's annoying when it happens cuz I am never near a charger when I notice the battery drain.

    Reboot the phone by long pressing the power button two times and see if that fixes it.

    If not, go into settings, applications, manage, and delete cache on the latest apps. Tose apps will resync and burn up some battery in the process so it is best done when you are near a charging source.

    I do use cachemate. My battery is only a few months old, so I'd like to keep the one I have if possible.

    I'll try out that defender app.
