My battery died at work today. i threw it on the car charger hoping it would eventually turn on, but did not. I then took it home and threw it on the wall charger, that was 4 hours ago!!!!!!!!! Ive drained my battery before, and its never taken this long to boot...i cannot afford to wake up tomorrow without a phone....any help please? also, i've searched the forums, but its getting late and most threads dribble out into some other topic or solution that doesn't ever solve the problem...

When this happened to me, the only charger that would charge it was the one that came with the phone.

First off, is your phone rooted? Or is it stock? Secondly I would suggest you remove the battery from you phone for about 30 seconds then put it back in and try to turn on.

If this doesnt work. Do you know anyone else w/ a droid so you can test there battery on your phone. You might take it to a verizon store and see if they have a spare you can test it with.

This is not a battery problem. I've just rooted my phone and for the first time, my battery won't charge. I have two batteries and they both do the same thing. They all worked prior to rooting. I left my phone on the charger for the past 8 hours. It was 70% charged when I first put it on the charger and was 50% when I checked it just now. I'm running BB FRF83, but had the same problem on the the previous BB release. I've checked every thread I could find, but nothing on this issue. Do I need to change ROM or the kernel? Any fix appreciated...

Ok... I tried a couple of the other P3Droid kernels and none of them would charge the battery... I was stuck at 20% for over an hour. After a bit of searching, I downloaded the Chevy kernel version 2.6.32-lowV-1.1Ghz and my battery is now at 30% and growing... It's no longer hot, which it was with the P3Droid kernel as well. I'm still running Bugless Beast V0.3.

Chevy kernel's here... http://chevyno1.richstevenson.com/froyo/4.2/kernels/

Update... it was the kernel that caused the battery issue. If you're having battery issues and using a P3Droid kernel... you should change it to a different type. I changed to Chevy and my phone has charged to 100% and has been charged all day... So now running Bugless Beast and Chevy Kernel on Froyo and the phone is running great... Now to work on the WIFI.

Well, you can't really put it like that because every single Droid is different. it wasn't the kernels fault since the kernel is fine and a lot of people use it. It's basically just your cpu could not handle that particular kernel. Every processor in the Droid is different from each other. Some can handle some kernels and other can not.

I somewhat agree, but for users of the same droid, it shouldn't be an issue. I also noticed the baseband had a lot to do with how the battery worked. I'm using the following and my charge can go a couple of days with limited use:

Baseband is c_01.43.01p
Kernel is 2.6.32.9-g103d848
Bugless beast version .4

Been using P3 kernels since Froyo came out. Wouldn't think of changing to another one.

I don't have any idea what caused your issues but i like P3's kenenls and I'm staying with them.

I had the same problem and it was caused by an incompatible overlclocked kernel. I downloaded one that was for an older build and it completely drained the battery within seconds. Slapped it in the original charger and booted to recovery and deleted it. It then came back just fine.

No issues here with the P3 Kernels.
