Massive battery draining
Have been using desire since last 2 years. Upgraded to gingerbread last year. Everything was working fine until recently, when the battery has been giving a lot of problems. With internet (3G) turned on, the battery drains out in 5-10 mins. Also, during charging it is back to 100% within 30mins to an hour.
Have tried looking for possible reasons & solutions (done battery recalibration, battery data wipe etc.) but not able to find one. After installing battery monitor widget, I can see that battery range (0-100%) is 3542 mV - 4236 mV and after switching on 3G, battery drains rapidly (like 98% to 0%) within minutes. It is showing that battery's health is good. Not sure whether this is battery problem or hardware/software issue?
Please help me out. Planning to use my phone for another year atleast.
Thanks to SUroot and gang, have rooted my phone using revolutionary. Let me know if changing kernel or flashing custom ROM could help?
