Day one of tweaked power usage stats. This is a chart of calculated battery usage per minute (mAh/min) for the phone minus screen power, just the screen itself, and the phone as a whole. The screen calculation was calculated only using screen on time, while phone minus screen and combined was calculated using the entire time off of charger. I'm trying to isolate the screen power usage to see how it is affected by the custom brightness settings. I'll do a few days worth of this on the revised settings I made and then a few days on the stock settings and compare the two. Hopefully I'll see a difference of a couple of mAh/min for screen power usage per minute.

As you can see, the screen itself uses up around 8 mAh/min while just the phone uses around 1.5 mAh/min. Combined, which is the most useful stat, is up around 3 mAh/min which translates to 11.6 hours typical usage per charge.

Great advice, Early. But I also had to laugh out loud. What are the odds I come back, and within my first 100 posts we need a PSA.

I loved 24. The only bumps in the road were the storyline where his daughter is being hunted by a frakking cougar, and I think they needed to go out with more of a bang. Frankly, he needed to die in the series finale.

Just not understanding - how is combined lower than just screen?

Mind expanding a bit? Would absolutely love to see results of this test and some tweaks we can do to increase battery life.

Me too. Running Patient Zero version 15. Many speed tweaks and other bells and whistles, but battery life is atrocious. It went from 84% to like 42% overnight.

I'm told it needs to settle for a bit. I don't know why roms have to settle. They're not frakking houses.

Nah, you just have the same problem I do. You think something and so you say it, lol.

But there's hope for us yet! BB made it to guide status. She must have had her filter cleaned out.

Calculated the screen usage by calculating the mAh used as follows:

2100mAh(battery capacity) x percent used total x percent used by screen
Divided that number by the screen on time.

For combined I just divided total used mAh by total time off the charger. So where you have maybe an hour of screen on time, you've got 9-10 hours off the charger.

True...however BB knows what she's saying most of the time. I'm oblivious to the fact that what I'm saying is offensive until someone takes offense and then I try to explain what I meant and that offends them even more

Edit: I don't know why they didn't just PM me instead of bringing it to the thread. I say in my sig that if you have a problem to PM me and we'll sort it out. I'm really not difficult to deal with

Go on wifi when you can -- if I leave my phone on Wifi but off charger overnight I lose 6-7% of battery (1% / hour). Its amazing the difference between wifi and cell radio.

I didn't single anyone out, so no need to go there, honestly.

It was just a general notice.

I wonder if you can have a script (Tasker task) then runs every 10% of battery that writes to a file or something.

I know I know, but I started down the road inadvertently and then tried to clear it up and made it worse. Not mad at you or the other mods, just seems I can win for losing sometimes.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. Its hard after shooting the breeze with everyone for months, to remember that we are all quite different from each other in our actual lives, and we get a little too comfortable. I will be honest, I tried going over into the Politics forum, but decided that I didn't like bringing the real world into the forum, which for me is mostly fun. So I will just stick to phones, food, fun, family, and forum games.

P.S. I honestly think you and I would get along great in real life. Other than the fact you are an EE Damn sparkys.

I tried regular Hulu when they did not have Hulu Plus. Now with the plus, I am wondering what has really changed?

Obviously I'm following this with great interest and look forward to hearing the whole story.

My wife asked me how I would react if my copilot locked me out of my cockpit. (I'm sure many have been tempted) I'd probably be banging on the door and foaming at the mouth too!

Like i said, looking forward to the whole story.

Time for a little diversion...

The German company "Style your Garage" makes posters as overlays for your tired old garage door. Great optical illusions!

Mind forwarding this one to my kids? I'd love to have it for Father's Day!

I know at least one classmate who has opened a restaurant. It's a ramen shop in Brooklyn. Would love to check it out.

Both of you are talking about 10 year reunions!! I just had my fifteenth year. About 25 people showed up, but there was alcohol, so Yay! And here I thought I was one of the younger ones (in age too, I already knew how noobish I am technology wise)!

You guys are out of control chatty tonight. I just got home from work and am listening to some very soothing music that I got into in NC. Julie Loyd is fantastic. I saw her once in Asheville and convinced her to play a small concert at my culinary school friend's apartment. I was able to jam along on one song on my little mandolin. Fun times.
Should anyone be interested in some jammy folk music here's her MySpace page:

Boy, now I feel old having said my 20th is next year. Am I too old to be a tech geek?

Well, you are one of the younger ones compared to some of us, speaking only for myself if course.

I'm actually surprised how many older folks are on AF sometimes. CR's comment just made me remember that I'm closer to 40 than 30. Oh well, still not a class reunion type.

Hey Chief, skipped the 20, skipped the 30. Looks like you and I are about at the closer to, ok almost at, 50 mark. Hmmm, I don't feel THAT old, you?

Not to one up you chief, but I missed my 10th reunion 27 years ago.

Eight track car stereos, computer punch cards and Mannix was cool because he had a CAR PHONE! And lets not forget side burns and bell bottom pants.

Nope, not at all: they say 60's the new 40 and I believe it! Hitting the big one in August, and not that concerned about it at all.

Maybe I'll start getting senior discounts at Waffle House

Never been to a reunion...didn't much care for the kids I went to school with when I was there and never been back so why start now? Been 35 years this year. Not that I am telling my age...I graduated very young. Yeah. That's it. I was a babe in arms when I graduated.

All this talk of old technology reminds me if my first computer. The year was 1984, I was in graduate school in Connecticut and I bought a used IBM PC for, wait for it, $3500! 2 five and a quarter disc drives, no hard drive, cpu was 4.77 MHz and the memory was 16 kB ~ 256 kB . First connection to the internet was actually Prodigy, but it was more like a bulletin board, no world wide web, lol. Now I Swype away on a four inch device in the palm of my hand that cost pennies by comparison to all of you great folks all around the country, almost instantly. WOW! What was your first (computer BB, computer, lol.)?

Its not a stoopid question. I use Photoshop. I don't draw them myself. I take pictures I like and recolor or add clothing or shoes and change backgrounds.
Thanks!
