    For 2 days my battery has been draining quickly. This morning it is dead in less than 4 hours. I sent four texts. Checking battery usage, this is what I found: com.android.launcher - 46%, Beautiful Widget (just uninstalled) - 37%. I have never noticed these processes taking up so much battery.

    Background: I have been receiving a low storage notice so I deleted some apps, texts and pictures and plugged in for the night. The next morning the severe battery drain began. I was concerned about shorter battery life after the latest update so I have recently changed my settings to lower frequency for refreshing email, etc.

    Any ideas?

    Could be a bad cell in your battery. Before I got my droid, I had a dare that had a bad cell in the battery. Every time I would make a call, I would get the low battery warning and my phone would shut off. Pull your battery and rub your finger across the face of it and feel for any raised bumps. That would indicate a bad cell. It's worth a shot.
