    Hi all

    I'm new in here. My first time posting. My SGS battery drain like mad. Fully charged over night but will not last for a day. Seeking advice.

    Do you have android 2.2.1 installed if so how do you use your phone?
    Many games or long screen on

    Hi

    Thank you for your reply. Sorry for the late reply. I have Froyo 2.2 installed. I seldom play game. I turn on my screen just to logon to facebook after which i will turn off the screen. But I have background data sync though and 3G on all the time. Will that consume a lot of battery?

    Thanks,

    there is a truckload of threads on this already. Auto sync is fairly hungry. I recommend having only what u must have syncing selected and turn the rest off.
    Most of the drain will come from your screen. Search for threads on display as well.

    Use the juice defender app it saves a bit.
    Dont use atk.
    And don't use 2.2 go for 2.2.1 it's les battery consumig (espaccially with 3g

    Hi all,I have had this problem as well and somebody gave me the advice to turn my background data and autosync off and it seemed to work. albeit only gave me a couple of extra hours but at least i can almost do a full days work without my battery fully going before i get home!a question i have though. if i go on 'manage applications' in my settings, there is an option on the applications to 'clear cache'. is this similar to cookies on your pc and is it beneficial to do regularly? are their any consequences to clearing an applications cache.thanks

    also, on the same screen there is an option to 'clear data' on some apps such as facebook and pingchat. what sort of data is this? such as my saved conversations and profiles etc? is this beneficial to clear as well?(sorry for being a pest lol)

    The clear data for the application, is information such as your login info, saved data for that application, on games for example it will be your game progress and so on. It is not beneficial for data consumption as it might use more data when openning the app because it has to re download that info again if needed. But it is good to use if you are having issue with the application.

    mgee88 think about it like a browser, you have data and cache, so the data is saved information like your password an so on, the cache is anything downloaded to the app. Not all apps have both. Take for example Pulse news reader, it has both delete Clear Data and Clear Cache. The clear data will remove the selected news sources, the cache is the downloaded articles for these sources.

    Autokiller would be the best for Juice Defender
