    Re: How to keep the iPhone from running out of batteries quickly

    Hi All,

    I have had my iPhone since day one in Australia and it has been adequate in terms of its battery usage for day to day activities.

    However in the last 24 hours something has changed and I don't know what.

    During this time I noticed that the iPhone is quite warm to the touch, this typically only happens when using 3G and GPS to navigate for a period of time in Google Maps.

    To test this I put the phone in flight mode to disable all of the 2G,3G,Wifi and GPS services, and sure enough the iPhone cooled right down again.

    I have installed no new application
    I have changed no settings on the iPhone

    However today the battery went from 100% to 10% in just over 4 hours, during this time:
    - No calls were made or received
    - No sms were sent or received
    - No wifi usage was done
    - No GPS usage was done
    - No specific Optus 3G data was done (ie: no browsing, etc.)
    - Push email was operating over Optus 3G to my work mail server

    Something is very wrong here.

    I have restarted the phone, and it has made no difference.

    I am just recharging the phone via USB and have disabled Push email and will let it run again for 4 hours or so and check the battery usage.

    I have made a pre-emptive Genius appointment at the Apple Store at Chadstone tomorrow just in case none of this testing changes anything

    Check out Wikimap in the app store. It allows users to save open street maps (osm) for offline map navigation. Offline mode means no 3-G or Edge access. This significantly extends battery life.

    I have learned if you keep it off of 3g, and play less games it doesnt kill the battery as much
