    Hey guys,

    I had the battery loss problem a lot of people are having when they upgraded to .113. I was losing 13% an hour.

    I changed a few things on my Storm:
    1) Changed the mobile network from Automatic to 1XEV. Helped a little
    2) Changed the Screen brightness from 100 to 30. Helped a little.
    3) THE FIX!! Weatherbug was DRAINING my battery. Even though I turned MY LOCATION off in previous versions, it did not save this setting. I hadn't gone into WeatherBug since I upgraded. When I went into it, I turned My Location off and changed the update to 4 hours. Now I'm losing 2.6% an hour!!

    Using .113 with weatherbug and location on all the time and brightness at 100%. Battery lasts me over a day with heavy use (web, voice, 3 email accounts, slacker radio and text).

    I don't understand why so many people have so many different end results with the same OS build.

    In any event, I'm lovin my storm. Everything is running smooth as ever and battery lasts to my hearts content! I wish the same for everyone else.
