    My battery keeps getting really hot (goes up to 105 degrees) and drains in about 2 hours. I've tried swapping it with a battery from another eris but it still happens so I know it's not the battery. I'm using the eris official v.1 rom. This happened on our other phone when I was using plain Jane rom so I flashed that one to eris official and it works great. I'm new to all this so am confused as to what's causing it. I have the app killer set and everything seems to be turned off. Any ideas.

    I'd be worried about the device if it over heated two different batteries.

    However 105 degrees is not excessively hot for a device battery.

    Draining in just a few hours is the big worry, though.

    Take a look around your device to see what is running that could be causing the rapid battery drain: menu > applications > running services, etc.

    Think about any recent changes you may have made to your settings, or any new apps, etc.

    Check for a syncing loop by disabling google sync in gmail, etc.

    Turn off GPS.. look for apps updating in the background (weather, etc). ;)

    Yeah, mine was doing it too. Started yesterday, around mid-day. I checked battery usage and saw that cell was way up. Sure enough, it was stuck in a syncing loop, for contacts only.
    I turned off Google Contact sync and that solved it. Hopefully it was a problem on Google's end and they'll fix out today.

    105 degrees is quite COOL for a battery.
