Re: drain battery

i normally put it on the charger when i get home from work.... normally it doesn't get below 50%... and every once in a while i like to clear batt stats. so instead of waiting for it to die, i'm hoping there's an app or something to drain it faster.... i'm downloading ubunto to it via wifi... 700ish mb... it's draining... also, i'm testing different kernels on it, and sometimes don't want to wait for a full drain/charge when flashing new kernels... that said, i couldn't tell you if that REALLY gives me more accurate usage statistics (full drain, clear, full charge, flash), but from what i've been reading around, a good drain/charge is recommended for better reading..

Re: drain battery

I would recommend downloading a flashlight app and let the run. Those consume alot of the battery because it will use the led flash on the phone. Depending on how long you let it run will determine how much battery life is used. Its a great way to kill some battery life, or just download some angry birds and go to town lol

Turn the screen brightness up all the way and then watch a netflix movie. That should do it!
