Settings which discharge battery life FAST

Hi, my phone is not yet a year and I have had this prob before, but cannot remember how I solved it last time. Any ideas? I know it is something to do with the settings or some function which it seems automatically activates and discharges the battery life within 12 hours without any talk time. I have looked at the std setting options ie switch off time, screen brightness etc and even the lowest settings do not preserve life to any great extent. I KNOW THIS ONE CAN BE SOLVED please help!

Re: Settings which discharge battery life FAST

I'm not sure where you are, but I had the same problem in October 2007 and the help desk sent me a patch for the phone, because some MTN did some maintenances and changes that had the effect on the k-jam

My battery dies every day and when I plug my phone in it still says low battery

Hi, this is a very common problem with all smart phones they use so much of their battery that the battery life drops really quick the only option you have is to get the battery replaced this will then solve your problem for a while but its not going to last forever, if you go to your nearest phone shop ask them if they have got an heavy duty batteries for your phone, they do make them but are hard to come buy.

one other thing to remember is this, once a month let the battery go totally flat let it go so flat that the phone wont even light up when you press the on button, now do a full charge over night doing this keeps the battery at its best and prevent any bad cells forming so if you do this say once a month or every 6 weeks it will prolong the life of the battery by load so bare this in mind when you get a new battery.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How To Save Battery When Using Your iPhone 4s

The iPhone battery received the most troubleshooting requests by a wide amount during FixYa's FixMas report last year, accounting for 40% of user issues. With the newly released iOS 5.0.1 failing to fix the issue for many iPhone owners struggling with battery life, I figured it would be a good idea to break down some of the best ways to get battery life out of your phone.

The vast majority of these actions take place in the "Settings" section of the iPhone. They should be done in conjunction with one another in order to maximize battery saving effects:

  • Turn off location services
  • Turn off push notifications
  • Turn down screen brightness
  • Turn off Bluetooth and turn off auto-search for Wifi
  • Do not leave your phone charging overnight-- when your phone reaches 100% battery power, take it off the charger
  • Lock your phone regularly and enable auto lock (the shorter it takes for your screen to lock the better)
  • Fetch new data manually (emails especially)
  • Turn off Siri (4s users only)
  • Turn off time zone settings

Please keep in mind the historical issues of this phone when attempting to solve your battery issues-- while the phone itself is a work of art and functions wonderfully, the battery is a huge issue and something that will be a problem for you even after you implement these fixes into your daily routine.

In other words, these tips are merely a way to get more juice out of your phone throughout the day. They will not fix your battery issues outright.

That is something only an OS update from Apple will be able to accomplish.

Hello There, Sony Ericsson K810I the battery life of my phone goes very quickly and my phone is a sony ericsson K810I and my phones battery life is very poor when i dont use the phone the battery still...

How old is the Phone? Phone batteries usually only last a year. Go through the phone and make sure things like the gps wifi bluetooth are turned off. also a constant data connection for auto updates of facebook or email or weather will decrease battery life.

The battery life of my ku990 is abnormal

The two main causes of battery life loss that no one thinks of are:

backlight settings (if you don't really need the backlight to stay on for 60 seconds after the last button press, lower it. this is a huge waste of battery life and it is easily changed in the settings menu of nearly every phone i have seen)

poor signal areas (when you have low signal, you phone wastes its battery life searching for acquirable signal. if it is unable to locate the signal, it will continue to search. this search uses up your battery life quite rapidly)

My G1 battery charge does not last that long it discharges real fast

Well, the G1 is a smartphone and it's constantly on the internet so it's obviously going to use a lot more battery power. However 3 hours is ridiculously short! You could try recalibrating the battery. To do this you use your phone until it has completely run out of charge and switches itself off. Then you turn it on again and again until all that it shows is a red LED and it refuses to turn on. After this you charge it while it's off until the green LED has been on for 2 hours. Hopefully this will help improve your battery life.

HTC S710 - Battery issue

it could be either battery or charger, If the charger isn't supplying enough power it will fool the phone..
some 3rd party batteries and cheapo chargers can cause all sorts of problems like this.
best way to test is charge your phone by usb, it takes longer but will give you some idea of weather its the battery or charger.
Make sure that the box at the bottom of the power management window (dont charge by usb) is set to off. Also for best results remove any other usb devices from the computer this will leave more power for the phone.

Best of luck

Sounds like your battery has had it mate - grab yourself a new generic, see if that fixes the problem, otherwise try a complete software reinstall
