Battery autonomy?
« on: April 23, 2011, 05:11:51 AM »
When i got it from the ups, with froyo, it was half battery full, and it lasted 9 hours, i didn't play too much with it.

- 1st full charge: 8 hours
- 2nd full charge (done with the mobile phone turned on cause with CM7 stable it automatically turns on when is under charge) 7 hours............(GPS always on, BT and WiFi always off)

I used it a lot doenloading mod, trying applications, surfing internet and listening music all the time, considering it's my first smartphone i can't say if is good or not...........my old phone could stay on for 1 week :)

And you? How long your zero last?

I noticed that the back of the phone get warm if you run a lot of apps back to back........like my laptop :)

3rd charge almost 24 hours........using it in a normal way......some messages, a couple of calls, a little of internet and a couple of apps dowloaded.....better but not enough................

Ah yes, 1st,2nd, and 3rd time i was using Cyanogen 7......my impression is that thi rom sucks much more battery that the stock one, that lasted 9 hours the firs time, with less than half battery, using it.......

Same here, I left it like 14 hours charging at the end of second discharge.
So far its the Third charge and has lasted for about 16 Hours Which i find reasonable so far, since the display shows that i still have 48% juice. Which, if true would last for at least another 12 hours or so, as long as i can go around with 24+ I dont think is bad, at least compared to my other gadget: an old 2Gen iPhone Touch

I am using CM and since I have stopped spending hours downloading new apps and roms and playing around a lot, the battery lasts for almost 2 days with some phone time and a few sms every day, so I guess that's alright for a smartphone :)

I'm having terrible problems with my batter life.

for example, i went to bed last nite and left my phone charging. got up this morning at 10:30am and it is not 13:45 and i had to charge my phone otherwise it would die.

i have found that even after charging it overnight, when i plug it out the battery icon at the top right does not indicate a full battery.

is there a standard procedure one has to take when they get a new phone to ensure there battery will work properly in the future?

Is my battery faulty?

Im off now camping tonight and I have serious doubts that my phone will even last until tonight.

My old Nokia phone would last for about 4 or 5 days. My new smartphone lasts about 4  to 6 hours.

I don't use the gps that much yet so i leave it turned off. i also leave network data turned off. but i would have wifi on.

Is there a battery report I can upload here and maybe someone from Geeksphone can review it? Maybe I'm not doing something right. Or maybe I've a faulty battery.

Thanks

Dan

Personally, my battery seams to hold good enough as long as I don't do any battery intensive stuff (ie games and such).
Note that I have 3g, wi-fi, gps off as an habit. Maybe one of these three thing uses battery more than should be ?

It seems it's a battery indicator gui problem. An issue is already opened.

Anyone tried using an usb wall charger along with the cyanogen ?

After a morning charging, the zero still says the battery in at 22%, even after reboot.

I think it's more some issue with the charging itself. AS if the phone detected something wrong stops charging to be safe.
I don't think the battery meter could be THAT far off. It worked ok so far.

Let's make this methodical :

 * What version do you use? Stock or CM?
 * What seems the be the problem : display or charge process?

For my part, it's Stock and display (whenever I reboot and/or heavily use battery, the levels seem to update themselves).

Cyanogen.
Charge process seams to be the problem there. As you on the stock rom, i sometimes noticed the indicator taking some time to refresh, but never in such a drastic way.

Maybe the wall charger is faulty.

What if you charge it from a computer's USB port?
