    Is there an app that tells how much battery each app uses?

    My phone is literally lasting me about 2 hours before the battery dies.

    It started before the facebook update so it's not that. I looked at my battery stats, it just says android system 99%

    I am getting so frustrated.

    I may try flashing back to littlekernel, I have meatkernel now.

    Check battery history using Spare Parts from the market.

    Also, use the pull down there to check "partial awake usage" to see if something is keeping your phone awake.

    the best thing i've found so far is

    SystemPanelLite Task Manager | AndroidApplications.com

    the link is for the free version, i bought it.

    it will not tell you how much battery an app is using, but WILL tell you how much CPU time an app has, which is the next best thing.

    also, go into menu/settings/about phone/battery/battery use
    there is some valuable info there.

    many people are finding the facebook app is preventing their phones from sleeping which is way bad for battery. a recent update reportedly fixed it.

    make sure if you just upgraded to froyo, that you uncheck auto sign in within the gtalk app, as it was reset during the upgrade

    and go into sprintzone (bundled app) and just uncheck everything if you do not use it.

    I guess I should have added, I'm on a rooted moment, I was running meatkernel, just switched back to littlekernel. ;)

    I'm going to check out spare parts. I have been checking out that System Panel Lite app, it's pretty cool too.

    Well, flash back to little kernel and it seems to be better now. I guess it was meat kernel? It started before I updated facebook, so I don't think it was that.

    I had the same problem, my phones wake time was equal to the up time, checked partial wake usage and it said android system was at 99%, took the battery out for a minute and rebooted the phone and my battery easily lasts the whole day now

    I don't know if it was that (I did a battery pull too) or me flashing back to little kernel, but it's better now. :)
