    ... was doing fine until rain was coming, then battery dropped big time.:eek:

    Charged last night before bedtime, didn't use my phone all day and checked a little bit ago and was down to 50%. Normally I'd be at 80-90% under similar circumstances.

    Here's the confusing part (Battery use):
    42m 36s since unplugged.
    Display: 67%
    Cell standby: 26%
    Phone idle: 8%

    EDIT: BTW, this is LIVE weather.

    Rain quit and rain animation also quit. I charged and unplugged before going to bed again and again with little use, I'm at 90% again.

    I'm now have CPU Hog (nicer animation) unchecked, which gives a jerkier weather animation, but we'll see what happens when it rains on Sunday.

    Battery use seems more accurate this time:
    22h 30 m 17s since unplugged
    Cell standby: 68%
    Phone Idle: 23%
    Display 10%
    Wifi: 2%
