    Hello.

    I have my Pre2 for a few months now with webOS 2.0 and 2.0.1 and got nearly 3 Days of battery life.
    After the Update to 2.1 it does not survive one day (not even the time i spend at Work.)

    I did not change any email settings or anything else.

    is someone faceing the same problem?

    did you get an official update, or did you do this with a meta-doctor?

    official update "over the air"

    the update notification was really annoying, that is why i decided to update the pre2 from 2.0.1 to 2.1

    check to see if something is set different, like email every 5 minutes, gas always on, etc. You should not have seen a decline.

    also check stop to see what is running.

    i already checked everything.
    i don't use IM on my pre, my emails are still set to one hour and i do not know how often the calendar is updating with google but no settings changed here.

    what do you mean by "check stop" ?

    Use forum search and check the other battery threads for tips to extend battery life.

    sorry, autocorrect should have left it alone. I was speaking of the JSTOP app in Preware.

    I too have noticed, not worse, necessarily, but erratic battery life. Some days I go all day, some days its stone cold dead by 1:00 P.M. No rhyme or reason that I can discern as yet.

    You should have never got 3 days of battery life to begin with.

    You were mistaken or something was wrong before. One day of battery life is normal.

    my pre2 walked through a weekend with one charge (friday morning to sunday evening)

    i don't use twitter, IM or facebook on my pre2. only email, calender and web browsing.

    i have read some other posts, but all they do is generally complain about the batery life, but not about the batery life getting worse after the update to webos 2.1.

    I find that hard to believe when the pre2 uses the exact same battery as the original pre.

    I dont think my orig pre has ever made it through 3 days.

    Unless the new processor is just that much better on power consumption, but I doubt it.

    Just out of curiosity, are you using Govnah?

    Are you using the built-in music player, or another music player like Koto or Music Player Remix?

    I ask because i'm trying to track a memory leak which seems to happen when i play music. Eventually this totally bogs down my phone, and i've seen battery issues as well.

    The other time i've seen battery issues is when i was leaving ~20+ cards open. This killed my battery at a much faster rate than with only a couple cards open.

    I have Govnah, but am running the stock kernal and dont really use it. There are clearly some sound related issues. I often get no sound after voice dialing, I have and use grooveshark and it often fails to close correctly. Whether these result in memory leaks (closing issues certain seem like they should), I can't say.

    I tend not to leave a lot of cards open and after grooveshark I tend to reboot.

    Some days battery life is just fine. Its the overnight behavior I find puzzling. Some nights I am on-call overnight and keep my phone at my bedside. Some nights I get a few calls and battery life is barely touched all night long. Other nights I get a few calls and battery life takes such a hit that by 4 AM i gotta go add some charge. Signal strength can't be the issue, I have an ATT microcell and am 5 bars in the house all the time, and use wifi for all data inside the house.

    Being in a weak signal area will chow down on the battery, I also work inside a jail from time to time and there is no signal in the jail. Too much concrete and rebar. If I dont go to airplane mode, a few hours and battery life is down to 20-30%.

    I have tried to be analytical about it, was the music playing? was the GPS on? did I reboot recently? Have I installed something new, add a new patch? etc etc. I still dont get it.

    I love the pre2 but i need to get trough my day like i did with the iphone 4. 80% of the iphone is battery... hp/palm need this too. I hope that the pre3 is much better in this case. maybe hp/palm can change something with some software updates. would love to see more "mini"-updates but much faster instead of 2.0 to 2.1...

    I experienced a huge drop in battery the other day after playing Pandora for a short time. I closed the Pandora app, and turned off the screen. Almost nothing was open, and my battery had been around at least 75%. A couple hours when i came back to it it was at like 45%!

    I'm still convinced there is a memory leak related to music applications. I've started a thread on it here: http://forums.precentral.net/general...mory-leak.html

    I think its a general Memory Leak or so. I've never used the Music App or Pandora or YouTube... so i think der is a other problem with 2.1 ... hope that 2.2 will come out very soon for Pre 2 and not only for the Veer at Launch.
