Email ( using >80% of battery ?


I am pretty happy with my MT3G so far (except for the SD card issue). One thing I noticed was my battery life for the last couple for days was horrendous, to qualify this I mean in 6 hours it was ~15%. According to the battery utility, used 84% in that same 6 hours.

Yesterday after seeing this I shut down and started back up (must have been something hung with a server I thought). Today I am experiencing the same thing, before lunch I had <50% battery already, so I removed both accounts from Email (Yahoo and my personal mail server), but kept the Gmail account in the Gmail app. Now its towards the end of the day and like yesterday I am back down to ~15%.

Does anyone have any hints at what I can do?


Go into Settings > Accounts & Sync and de-select "Backgroiund Data". That should improve your battery life by stopping some programs from trying to sync when you don't need them to. Be aware, though, that you will likely come across some apps that want it on.
