2.2 Kills Battery

Since the update to 2.2 I have had to recharge my battery twice today.  It will completely drain in about 15 minutes of viewing something as simple as twitter. Before update I charged the phone every night and it lasted all day.  What changed?

I've read about this on another board as well. Mine seems pretty good however.

 

Their solution is to try this - charge the battery with the phone powered on. Once it is fully charged and it pops up battery full, unplug it and power down. then plug it back in until the battery is fully charged again. They seem to think the meter is not reading the battery fully and this procedure is referred to as a "bump charge". Dunno if it will work but.....hey...cant hurt right?

Battery life has been hit and miss with Froyo.  Some like yourself report horrible life and some report not much if any difference than Eclair (2.1).

 

I have been reading on this and a couple other forums about folks having allot of issues with the stock version of Froyo in the short time it has been officially out.  I hope it wasn't released to soon.

I know the procedure you are referring to however you have left out one step.  You need to clear the Battery Stats, but it can't be done without some other procedures.

Battery needs to be recalibrated, you'll be fine in a few days

I am experiencing the same problem with battery life. Pre-Froyo, I was thrilled with my battery life--I used to brag about it to my friends with other Android phones, who had to charge their phones multiple times per day. Mine would last almost two days!

 

Last night, I went to bed with the battery at 100% and this morning woke up with 42%. What gives?

 

I will try that bump procedure. Fingers crossed!

After first installing FRYO my battery life was terrible. Today I noticed that it has improved considerably. Like some one ellse on here mentioned about giving it time I would agree with him.
