    [Sorry my english]

    Well guys i have some problems: i have a 16GB BB PlayBook and my battery drains like 1% per minute using only Wi-Fi and browsing,0 brigtness, no Bluetooth n energy saving config. In like 1-2 Hrs as much, my battery is 10%. i never use Bluetooth i have no bluetooth devices or something liek that, i am happy with no brigtness i hate the light on screens but why is my battery duration so low? What's the normal battery duration of a PB like mine? TY BT

    Your playbook must be getting very hot. Usual advice is to get Battery Guru to get some numbers on charging and power draw in operation. In your case I would suggest going into airplane mode and see if that makes any difference. You can also do a hard reset. You may be able to get rid of an ill behaving app. Have you side loaded any Android apps? Check how you have apps like email and others which are checked for notifications set up and disable them temporarily.

    It must be a hardware defect of some kind. Battery drain that fast (1-2 hrs) is well beyond what any bad app or configuration could do.

    When was the last time you rebooted the Playbook?
    I think there is an app that's running in the background. Maybe it never shut off properly and that can be eating up your power.
