i just got a replacement 3G as my old one only had a battery life of up to 6 hours and i was pretty sure i had double-checked every single app that could be the caus for this. now with my replacement and the synced back prefs and data, the battery life seems to be the same. so hooray for getting a new 3G, but my bad, apple.
i do use push email and listen to my ipod a lot, but 6 hours is just ridiculous. i reduced screen brightness and unchecked automatic brightness, unchecked sound-check for the ipod, bluetooth is off, ssh is off. not sure what else i could do to extend my batteries lifetime.
so there might be an app problem here. i do have the following apps installed:
- boss prefs
- mcleaner - could it be that mcleaner runs in the back even when disabled?
- status notifier
- xbmc control
- iblacklist - same goes for iblacklist (i am currently evaluating if i pay for iblacklist again or use mcleaner)
- scrobble - can't eat that much battery or can it?
- google earth
- remote - "stay connected" is known to eat some battery but not if i'm not in my wifi network, right?
who could be the cause for this?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
