    Every day, after school I have track and I leave my phone in my locker. By this time my phone is 70-80% and that's fair. So I leave my phone for an hour or two and EVERY day I come back it's down to 45% or less and I ALWAYS have a notification. Is this drain in battery due to me having a notification and the light flashing?

    It could also be from low signal in your locker.

    yea same thing happened to me I had gym I put my phone in my locker and it died from low signal and the low sgnal made a lot of heat so make sure to turn the phone radio off.(sorry for the run-on sentence)

    I don't think that one LED draws enough juice to drain the battery any significant amount. Just IMO.

    It's not the LED, it's ur locker killing reception.

    I havent done anything differently but my battery life is significantly WORSE since moving to 1.4. There's nothing different about my phone, my apps, my usage, or my location. I leave my phone in the same spot at my desk all day like I used to, but when I get home, instead of having 70% left I now have 40% left. It's a major difference and I havent changed anything! Very frustrating.

    Try updating your network settings and the PRL in the phone app preferences.

    Well, there is quite a simple test to resolve this. Tomorrow before putting your phone in you locker, just turn the LED notification off. My guess is with the rest of the responses above -- its reception, not the LED that is killing your battery.

    LEDs take amazingly little power to light, I bet the LED could flash several million times before you would even notice any drain on your battery.

    funny, I was gonna post the opposite. I normally have 30% or less this time of night. All things were equal, played on it the whole bus ride(30mins) work is slow the first 2 hours so I played for another 20-30mins sent 10+ txts, browsed precentral and tech crunch on both lunches and also took a 7 min call. All normal usage. I have 53% right now.
