Default Since OTA, my browser (Dolphin) is killing my battery.

Lately, after the OTA, my battery is going from 70% plus to nothing in less than a couple minutes after starting Dolpin. It shuts down automatically. It will restart , but for only a short period after which it shuts down almost immediately. Putting it back on the charger shows over 50% after a minute or so. All other typical battery draining apps maps/nav/ Waze seem to be ok.

I'm still on Gingerbread and have never updated to ICS. But I noticed some similar strange behavior from my battery after I installed a couple of power control applications like JuiceDefender from Google Play. The battery level would indicate 50% then in a few minutes show 2%! Then I could unplug it then re-plug it in and it might jump back up to near 50%. After I uninstalled the power control apps, the battery went back to draining normally.

Maybe the battery was always okay but those applications caused it to report the wrong voltage.

Well, tonight it dropped precipitously from 93% down to 50% where it shut the phone down. Starting it up again showed a low charge warning and it shut down again. After I connected the charger, I started it up and my battery graph showed it was only at 50%.

I have never used any power control apps on this phone.
