    Since I installed the BBM channels beta on my 9900, I've noticed that my battery is sometimes draining around 30% in a matter of seconds. I believe it's caused by the BBM beta because it's only been happening sine it was installed, and I haven't added any new apps in ages. Has anyone else experienced this?

    No. I haven't seen a change in battery drain since Tuesday when I installed it.

    My battery died quite fast after installing it today, I'm gonna give it a day or so before I can say anything.

    Me also using BBM beta, no issue of battery draining. Try restart phone by pulling battery for 2 min and observe .

    My battery has been fine the last few days, minus installing leaks. No drain connected to bbm channels.

    Well I'm officially blaming bbm channels beta for my battery drain issues, I reverted back to the regular
    bbm about 4 days ago and my battery life is back to normal.

    I would have to concur - I have it installed and following a dozen or so channels... had to swap battery 4 times yesterday :O

    I'm hoping it's a 'beta' thing... but I have 2 spares so I'll stick with it - love the BBM channels
