Help with batterySupport

    I've read all the threads, I've deleted all the samsung apps but damend Jellybean has changed my battery life. I have lost 15% in 9 hours. (8 hours sleep) Before I'd use about 2%. This may still sound good but I want it as it was before!

    What can I do? I don't have apps running like GreenPower or Juice Defender as I was told they hinder and not help. This is my GSAM from when I woke up this morning:

    15 percent with 9 hours of inactivity sounds about right. I only get 2 percent overnight when I put the phone in Airplane Mode. Weren't you running a tasker that did that automatically before and you accidentally changed the settings?

    Sorry - it was in airplane mode. (Tasker profile)

    My phone clicks into airplane mode for 7 hours when I'm in bed.

    Some nights it uses 2% overnight and some nigts it uses 10% overnight. Why?

    yes mine uses around 15% too overnight. maybe time to install
    juice defender again to keep that data activity in check

    How can it be doing this if it is in airplane mode though?

    sorry.mine isn't in airplane mode. just standard connection.
    hence I might try JD again....but then i generally charge overnight
    so not too much of an issue for me

    Have you tried pressing and holding the home key and using the task manager to close running programs before going to bed?

    I lose about 3 to 4% over night. My WiFi goes off when sleep. I use tasker to turn off DATA at home and at night time, and kills Groupon at night. Phone stays on incase of emergency calls or text. No battery saving apps. Debloated, and removed stock video app(stays on constantly). Set my background process limit to 4 and always clear recent apps before bed.

    What's group on?

    I do similar but I have airplane mode turned on via tagsker. I rarely use mobile data and have it turned off 95% of the time anwyay.

    Sorry, that's my GROUPON app. It likes to run constantly in the background.

    I think I found the culprit:

    99% of the time, excessive battery drain is due to one of two things:

    1) a rogue app polling data in the background constantly
    2) a weak cellular signal

    people install dozens of apps all willy-nilly and don't use the back button to exit out of apps, and they remain open and kill the battery. i try to use mobile sites instead of apps whenever i can, and they're getting a lot better these days.
