    So I had a z10, was getting poor battery life like 4-5 hours sent it back and got a brand new one, this then lasted 6-7 hours, got my BlackBerry how I want it now. (everything's turned off to save battery) I use bbm, instagram, kik, and snapchat and a bit of Facebook and my battery has drained rapidly! As you can see in the screen shot if It carries on draining it'll last about 2 hours! Yes I have side loaded apps, but I don't even have any email accounts set up, I just use bbm/Facebook and the side loaded apps, my phone is pretty much empty still, also its getting hot! I don't wanna reload the OS again but it looks like I might have to!

    Well, at the drain rate of >3Wh you can expect the battery to empty in just over 2h. I don't see what is abnormal here. Clearly one if the apps you are using is messed up and sucking way to much power.

    You're using something to drain it that fast, it just doesn't do it by itself. What apps are installed? What's open?

    It's very clear that at 12pm something changed. What was it?

    Use to use KIK. had to dump it. Was using battery up like crazy. It was constantly polling the network. This was on a 9650 and later tried again on a 9930. Fail.

    The only apps I've installed are kik instagram snapchat then I got CB10, camera timer, Vodafone, battery guru, I'll do a wipe when I'm home and install them again 1 by 1!

    All kinds of things can contribute to fast battery drain. I haven't used battery guru myself, but from what I'm hearing in general, apps open in Active Frames are still running apps and they will use more power than if they are not running at all. I do find myself that BBM can be a power hog; my batter does drain faster if I happen to be using it a lot during the day. Many graphics-intensive games are horrible power hogs, too. The strength of your network signal can also have an impact.

    If I want to rape my battery, I just play some games like The Dark Knight or Asphalt 7.

    I had this same problem and I did a lot of testing like installing and un installing lots of apps and I can say that it two things apps or Os but as of now my phone is running great again. I think it's more to the OS but that's just me. I have started a post here before about this and I hope BlackBerry next 10.1 will fix this. All in all phone is great last the hole day.

    Tip If you see your battery and phone getting hot turn airplane mode on for a few minutes then turn off. has worked for me. Seems that the phone is drawing to much so doing that stops it.

    Nope only used it for about 10 mins, main usage is bbm, other apps i check them for about 5-10 mins thats it!
    Also my phone takes about 3-4 hours to charge using a normal plug and the charger that came with it, how are you getting 4W of power from charging? i get about 1W if im lucky!
