My battery hasn't been too bad but recently it is dropping quickly and when I check it is the Calendar application that is taking the most by some way. Any ideas as to why this might be? I have turned off the weather update on it but that made no difference.

TIA

That seems kind of strange to me because by the end of the day when my battery hits 40% i check the usage and live wallpaper is only 3% of the usage.

Live Wallpaper has barely any effect whatsoever.

Thanks arlrb interesting figures.

Mine after 30 mins.

Calendar 43%
Display 41%
Android System 4%
Cell Standby 3%
Live wallpapers 3%
Phone Idle 2%

I just can't see why the calendar is taking all the power, I have removed all the calendars and taken it off my front screen. So it must be one of the apps doing it. Will now try uninstalling the likely candidates one at a time.

Update :- looks like it was eboBirthday doing the deed, I have removed that and the problem has stopped.

Depends. If you want an expensive paperweight - that's great. Good Job.

If want to actually use your phone however well that's a different story.

Default My DHD battry configuration

Here are mine specs for battery:

Uptime length: from 7 am till 10 pm, then on charger (mostly still got 30%)
Accelerometer: on
3G Or 2G: 2G, at school sometimes 3G
Wireless On: at home (from 4 pm till 10 pm)
GPS On: always on
Automatic Brightness: yes, auto

Misc: I sometimes look at Twitter etc, but auto sync is totally of. I text about 10-15 times a day, and call is about 5-10 minutes. I have live background Nexus or photos (changing). All 6 panels full with widgets. At home is skype logged in, otherwise I shut it off.
I have also Advanced Task killer installed, with auto-kill frequency 30 mins. Every time I used an app, lock/unlock screen I kill all tasks. Task killer helps a lot.

Ps: my Android system uses only 3% of my battery, my screen 60%

I used to think like that, but try it without, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Tongue Got the phone yesterday

OK, Amazon price was great on the phone. Every phone I have ever owned had/has removable batteries. I ordered a pair of 1600mAh batteries, a USB cable, AND an out-of-phone charger. I can have one in the charger to switch when I get home and I carry a spare battery with me. That's 3 batteries (for those keeping score). That package was $30 on eBay (USA seller, I don't love ordering from Hong Kong) and hasn't arrived yet. I'll report on the 1600's when I get some data. WHAT I WANT is a replacement battery cover! If I'm going to be swapping batteries often, It looks like I'll be needing one (Murphy was an optimist). Car chargers start at $10, so ease up on the bitching, everyone. Battery tech has improved tremendously - but, of course, like highways and hard drives, the demand grows even faster.

I dont bother with replacement batteries, if I am going to be out for a long time or am on a trip without a charging source I use one of these. Small enough to sit in your pocket next to the phone and charge it and it is good for 2.5 full charges before it needs recharging. Simples

This problem also occurs when Flickr is linked to the phone.
