    I am a rooted user and yesterday updated to the Pardus HD Rom as my phone was running slow

    But since then, the phone has chomped through the battery a lot quicker than usual, and also it drags it's heels on charging when you get to around 80%

    Even when it was on for 5 hours charging last night, it only reached 94% and after using it on standby for 7 hours and screen for about 20 minutes (internet browsing) it was back in the 30's

    There are no other reports of issues with the ROM, so I can only assume that's it's a coincidence that the battery has become flaky

    I have ordered a 4300mah extended battery and cover that got good reviews on DealExtreme, but would also like to fix the problem on the current setup

    I have had similar problems on my s3 with different aosp roms that others have not reported. My battery would take 4-6 hours to charge if not longer and sometimes would never even fully charge. Even had times when the battery would drop a few percent while plugged in. Since using a couple different stock based roms I have never had that problem again

    Thanks for that, I quite like this Rom, so will keep it if possible. But if not, changing is no big deal. As it is, I charged the phone while it was powered off and it went up to 100%

    I will leave it plugged in till work tomorrow morning and see how it goes
