    Is there any app that will tell you which app is producing the most battery heat on your phone? I know spare parts tells you what's using the battery the most but nothing is being used really under that and my phone on average hovers around 100 to 115 degrees.

    my right leg is officially ready to be served for dinner :thinking:

    i'm not sure that what you're asking for is possible. the temp is just read from a thermometer basically i would imagine. if you're still on darchdroid, it would be news to me that you're having battery heat. with 2 darchdroid roms and froyo my battery stays pretty cool. when i was on fresh roms, it was regularly running about as hot as yours is now. it's likely being caused by a combination of things...apps running, clock speed, battery itself...heck may not hurt to get some can air and pull out the battery and sd card and blow out the phone and battery cover...i've started doing this on occassion, and maybe it has some minimal impact.

    i think that spare parts can tell which apps are using battery because it knows how much cpu/memory apps are using though...the battery is not reporting that data back to spare parts

    thx my fellow texan..do u think having over 100 apps is the cause? i use just about all of them lol..

    how about all the widgets i have on my screen? was running with 9 screens but stopped that since i thought that was the cause of the battery overheating..i didn't get high levels on fresh but i'm on darchdroid 2.7 and it's getting hot whenever i play music or just run simple apps.

    how do i read spare parts? i go to battery history, then go to partial wake time usage and it says android system is on top..isn't that the way it's supposed to be?? is there a way to tell what's running in the background? i guess that would be my question

    Spare parts wont help you determine specifically what's causing your battery to get hot. Sounds like your clock speed might be stuck high, are you using setcpu/oc widget? Try downloading system panel and watch what your clock speed is doing.

    i think darchdroid 2.8 comes with overclocking automatically..so i'm running neither widget..it's gone down some lately, but i'll try your method
