Re: HTC EVO Battery Drain Signal Fix

I am still leaning towards it being a "Charging Problem" and not a Battery problem.. Yesterday i was running the EVO stock battery that was charged in my TP2 craddle and i got over 12 hours of use and was at around 30% when I plugged it in to be charged last night...

I am at 3 hours this morning and am at 50%

I am going to swap to my TP2 battery and charge this one in the cradle again....

Re: HTC EVO Battery Drain Signal Fix

I think I figured out what worked for me:

1. I did the GSM to CDMA fix on the phone.
2. I then did the HTC suggested battery fix on my TP2 Battery but not the EVO battery. This is why My TP2 Battery was preforming so well. After testing the 2, I found the EVO battery was still having issues.
3. I then preformed the HTC suggested fix on my EVO battery and all seems to be well. They both seem to be holding up the same now.

GSM to CDMA Fix:
HTC EVO Battery Drain Signal Fix

HTC Suggested Battery Fix:
Possible battery fix from HTC!

Hope this helps!!!

I never got it to the point that when I plugged it in the light went green immediately. It would take a minute or so to go from amber to green.

These were the steps I took:
1. With the phone on, I charged till indicator was green.
2. Disconnected the phone from charger and then powered off.

3. With the phone off, I charged till indicator was green.
4. Disconnected the phone from charger and then powered on.

5. Repeated steps 1 & 2.
6. Done.

I did the same as you by continuing to charge alternating on and off waiting for it to be green immediately but after the 10th time I figured that was enough. Still seems to have made a big difference.

Re: HTC EVO Battery Drain Signal Fix

Does anyone know if this GSM to CDMA "fix" has any effects on their 4G (WiMax) service?

Mine took about 6 times but finally went to green right away. My battery life greatly improved today over the previous week.
