    Hi,

    I'm just a new Android user, and I have a question, couldn't find a related post. I've been trying to extend the battery life of my Epic 4G Touch, It lasts all day 7a.m until midnight or so, with as much as I use it... down to about 20% battery when I plug it in before bed.

    My question is... I have pretty much everything turned off, wi-fi, 4G, GPS, the works as far as the setting go... use power saver after 50% battery, auto screen brightness....

    I have this widget, the only one... called, Battery Monitor Widget.... it lists some things like usage, temp, available, voltage.... and it has a button for History...

    When I click that, it shows a draw of -8mah, every 5 minutes on the button... sometimes more...

    Now I close all apps after leaving them through task manager, and even with the phone idle... screen off... there is still this draw...

    Is that just the phone.. or have I missed some sort of sync? I have the sync options to off also...

    just playing around and had this question I couldn't find an answer to?

    Thanks.

    Your missing the fine print of the applicatoin. It works great with HTC and some Motorola devices, however most Samsung devices are not supported.
    I had it on my EVO 4G, Epic 4G, EVO 3D and EPIC Touch and its worked great on the HTC devices but not so great on Samsung. I keep it around because i like the Red LED type of notifier in the status bar. But for accurately meauring current drain or charge its not working on our devices.

    Is a 1% loss of battery every 30 minutes standard while in 'stand-by' or 'idle' mode?
