    Is having the NFC turned on a heavy drain on the battery life or almost no drain?

    Keeping NFC on should be almost no drain. It should also turn itself off when the screen is off, so it's a very limited security risk as well.

    I just ordered an Inspiron 1501. When I first started using laptops a year or two ago, I was told the best way to preserve the battery life was to charge it up to 100%, and then drain it as far as possible, before re-charging it. Occasionally (not necessarily intentionally), I have drained it to 0% before recharging it again. When should I plan to start re-charging the battery? Should I wait till it is 1-2%, or should I charge it sooner? I was told that if you start re-charging the laptop battery when it is at, say, 40%, that will create a new ceiling of battery life, and it will only charge up (in future charges) up to that 40% level, but no more.

    The best way to hand a lithium battery is to do frequent shallow charges. 1-2% is too low to allow the battery to go.

    Hi,

    I updated to KitKat (4.4.2) a few days ago on my Samsung Galaxy S3. Since then my battery hasn't lasted nearly as long as it used to. The stock battery monitor (under Settings) shows 'Android System' is consuming way more battery life this ever used to. Upwards of 25% - 45% at any given moment I check. It's now the top battery drain when the Screen used to be.

    Things I've done:

    1) Leave the battery out for a few minutes

    2) Wipe the system cache partitiion

    3) Factory reset (several times)

    4) A combination of 1,2 3.

    I've also done a factory reset and left the phone alone (no extra apps, airplane mode, no use) and the Android System still consumes all kinds of battery life. This looks like a OS-level bug.

    DB:4.02:Battery Life??? 37

    But I get 12 hours on the built in battery, and I'm pretty much addicted to the phone, especially for email, web access, not that many calls. I charge once per day.

    So you are either more addicted than I am, or your battery may be going out, or, more likely, your charge circuitry never gets a chance to calibrate it self by running into the red.

    In the normal course of use, I end up running the battery into the red once or twice a month, thereby satisfying Apples recommendation to drain the battery at least once a month to calibrate the battery charge circuitry.

    Sometimes the shut down happens up to 3 times consecutively.

    Also, I recently purchased a new battery. The older battery which worked well now doesn't work at all which leaves me wondering if it is related to the other issue.

    Can you help?

    DB:3.70:9790 Ghost Battery Drain m9

    I also have 9790. Problem comes with what apps you use - some apps drain your battery for 30 minutes and the battery is then super-hot. I avoid using such apps. Sad but true.For example install the Fashion Icon game - it's cool game but drains my battery for 20 minutes. I deleted the game. This is just one example.So check when this happens - for sure you are using some app which drains your battery. Find out which app is this and delete it. Sad but true.

    thanks

    Alot of the debate goes back to signal strength. It seems to be the common consensus on the 'net that wifi will use less power if both signals were the same strength. It also comes down to your usage while you are there also, if you are using the data constantly, wifi will be better, but if your phone is not doing much, I have seen reports that your phones data radio will turn off after a while of non-use.

    It also comes down to your data plane also, as compared to battery life. Do you have an unlimited data plan, or are you on the tiered plan? If you are on the tiered plan, then running wifi whenever possible will save you on your broadband usage.

    Whatever you decide, do not run both of them at the same time. If you are going to run wifi, turn mobile data off. If you are using mobile data, turn the wifi off..

    The first thing I can think of is this. When you are doing using anything on your phone don't use the red hang up key. Click on the menu key and select exit or close. Otherwise you are just leaving the apps running in the background. This happened when I first got my BB because I never closed the browser.

    Yeah, regular cellphones don't have the same power hungry processors as smartphones, so they can typically last much longer. Most smartphones often only last the day, if that (for example, many people have totop up the charge ontheir iPhones or Android phones at least once throughout the day if they use them extensively, and heavy BB users can often end up needing to do the same).

    Good luck and enjoy your new BlackBerry!

    I got mine from the BB World and after being pretty sceptical in the beginning,it really gave me approx 35% longer batteryduration!

    Not quite the times, the old NOKIA 63X0 phones provided, but still pretty neat ;-)

    Cheers

    dont i have to let it drain then charge all the way? can someone help?

    DB:3.63:How Do I Extend The Battery Life? dm

    Yeah, let it drain and re-charge it a few times, and the battery life will increase.
    EDIT: When I say drain, I mean down to a few percent, not entirely.

    Do you mean 6-7 hours with continuous screen on and surfing 3G internet? That would be normal I suppose.However, you can check battery drain with BetterBatteryStats app. Can pin down the culprit if too much bat drain. A very good guide here:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1433309

    DB:3.63:N86 Battery Drain zp



    Hi, Have N86. Recently battery drains to zero in 4 hours. Have second N86 which battery works fine in. Have reformatted with no change in battery life. Any suggestions?

    DB:3.63:N86 Battery Drain zp


    Swap batteries over. If the one in the fast draining phone works ok in the slow one then the fast draining one is faulty or you've left it doing wifi scanning, email checking or something else. If not, then you need a new battery. 4 hours is fast. That would suggest a constant connection to something or a duff battery.

    I have a application running in background, the background Thread Sleep for 15 minutes then executes once. I don't know how effect of this background Thread to battery level. Does it drain the battery?

    DB:3.62:Thread Processing And Battery Level m9


    The internal electronics are problably largely CMOS, any thing that changes the state of

    a gate takes charge at Vdd and moves it to ground so sure that came from the battery.

    Radio and peripherals and light of course use battery too. I have seen infinite loops

    create battery drain as you may expect if power management is good.

    I guess I would request a current monitor on future phones.

    Battery is draining so quickly after ios 7.1 update.

    DB:3.61:Battery Drain jd

    Since you appear to be using an iPhone 5S I am guessing that the battery is still OK to recharge. I would try the following:1. Shut down any apps running in the background. Double tap the Home button to open the multitasking window. Swipe up on the screen shots of the apps running in the background until they are all closed.2. Restart your phone. Hold down both the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons until the Apple logo appears and your phone restarts itself.3. Power cycle the battery. Let it run down to the point where it won't start your phone back up anymore. Plug it into a wall outlet and let it charge over night. Let it charge awhile past when it reaches 100%.I do this everytime I update the firmware on my phone and it seems to help. I don't know what causes it, but when Apple released new firmware it sometimes messes up the battery meter so that it looks like your phone is dying very fast, even though it isn't really. Doing the battery cycle routine once a month seems to help keep the meter calibrated so that you see the actual battery drain.Also turn off as many location specific features as you can. Anything that uses the GPS will really take a hit on the battery.And if you can set your email to manually fetch rather than push that will help too.Until battery science moves past smartphone feature sets I don't think we will get to use them as the always connected, always on tools we really want them to be.

    DB:3.61:Battery Drain When Using Google Sync f9


    I noticed a little extra battery drain since I set-up the google sync (Exchange ActiveSync). I am only syncing my contacts. Can I turn off the syncing of my contacts and turn it back on whenever I want to sync to conserve battery life?

    DB:3.61:Battery Drain When Using Google Sync f9

    I went to my google account settings, but I don't see anything there about sync options. I even looked under my gmail setting. Nothing there.

    FYI, this is the way I set-up my google sync (to sync my google contacts to my iPhone)...

    Has anyone else suffered rapid battery drain after updating to ios 7.1?

    For users with battery drain problems also look at this message from me in another topic. Maybe it also helps you to find a solution to the drain problems on your iPhone. I would also suggest to read the complete blog post by a former Apple Genius bar person.

    One zone in my security system continues to drain door sensor batteries within 30 days. Is there a remedy?

    DB:3.60:Short Battery Life - Door Sensor fa


    It most likely has a weak signal to the touch screen. Ask for a tech to come out and check the signal. If you have a siren repeater try moving it closer to the sensor and reboot the touch screen

    You can try resetting the SMC and NVRAM.http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1379http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3964You can also try running the short and/or extended Apple hardware test by holding D button while booting up and then following the instructions.http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1509If that doesn't work (seems not extremely likely that it will) you can backup and try reinstalling a fresh OS.If that still doesn't work maybe the battery is bad. If you don't feel like messing with all that just take it to Apple. They should have a test they can perform.
