Excessive battery use with 2.1.8

Matt Carswell 7 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 7 years ago 1
it seems like 2.1.8 is using a LOT more battery than previous versions. After being on battery for only 5 hours, and listening to xiialive for 15 minutes, i'm down to 20%. normallly i can go 12-14 hours before getting down to 20% battery. See attached screenshot.

There 12hrs? wow that's a lot of streaming hours :) What phone do you have?

There are a few little details that I just discovered in regards to the widgets... I'll be putting out an update most likely next week. I'm not sure these changes make a huge difference on the battery usage.. but it's worth a try...

I didn't mean 12 hours of streaming, i just meant it usually takes 12 hours in general for my phone to get down to 20%. Today it was down to 20% after only 5 hours. If i'm reading the screenshot above correctly, only 15 minutes of that was streaming, but xiialive kept my phone from sleeping for 2.5 hours. Maybe that's why?
