    So at work I generally keep the data radio off (I have the handy little data toggle homebrew app installed to make it a one click process). I forgot to turn the radio back on when I got home until about 8:30pm. I turned it back on, let the email update, checked that, and then put it down. 2 hours later I got the 10% warning (it was over 80% when I turned the radio back on). I had no apps running, nor had I really opened anything all day. The GPS was on, but I always have my GPS on and have never experienced anything like this before.

    Also, I haven't installed any new apps or anything today.

    Any idea of what this might be? How do I stop this from happening in the future?

    update: Just noticed that even after I turned off and pulled the battery and rebooted the device, it's still draining far too fast. It has drained 2% in the time it took me to write the first post!

    Have you installed any new patches or homebrews recently?

    Honestly, I have had that happen on both my phone and my wife's phone.

    My phone I have all sorts of patches and home brew apps.
    Hers has nothing but stock stuff.

    So, anyways I am not saying that it is not an app from home brew or even the app catalog that is causing it. I would venture it has something to do with a memory leak.

    But the way I have resolved the issue on both phones when it starts to do the super battery drain is to pull the battery for a bit put it back in and charge it up. I generally have to do that like once a month, and I just do a soft reset like once a week.

    Hope that helps.
