    Hi all, I have a rooted Xperia Sola that has been running a custom Jellybean rom for nearly 8 months. However around a month ago, I noticed that the battery started to drain really quickly for no reason at all (about 5% per hour when idle) and thought maybe the battery had become weak (since I had been using my device for nearly 2 years with overnight charging every other night).
    So yesterday I bought a replacement battery and installed it but still the problem does not seem to have been solved. In fact, the new battery drains at around 1% every 10 minutes! I tried a battery calibration app from the Play Store but still no luck :( Can someone give me a hand over here please? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    Look on XDA for better battery stats

    Or better yet, buy the one on Google play. That will show the offending app and let you make a decision from there.
