I have a Droid X2 I bought off ebay and the battery drains very fast. I purchased a new battery so it is not the battery. Under Battery Usage my Phone Idle is at 70%. I don't know how to fix my battery draining so fast. Also if my battery is fully charged and I Power Off my phone for the night, I can't Power Up my phone in the morning unless I plug it in again to charge the battery. I have No Apps running and I have not loaded anything. Also, I did a hard reset / factory reset and after that, under Battery Usage it still states my Phone Idle is still at 70%. I need help in fixing this, please help me.

Download an app called gsam battery monitor. Use it for a while and tell us what is using the battery.
Also, are you rooted?

Hey I'm am old DX user. Try calibrating your battery. There are instructions here and at droidxforums.com. It's been a while since I've had to do it so i don't remember the steps completely. I do remember it's not hard to do and makes a world of difference.
