Re: N9 average idle consumption

I'm guessing you are using the app called battery usage and getting that message.

 

Are their programs running? I know that the battery monitor for the N9 gives me that same warning when I'm listening to music, even though I wouldn't consider that being idle. There's nothing that I know that you can do about it besides e-mail the author of the app and tell them about it.

Re: N9 average idle consumption

26 is good. my unit shows 46 at idle, because i have so mony things running in the background.

wp7.5 is much higher than even mine.


you have nothing to worry about with that number. :smileywink:

Re: N9 average idle consumption

Thanks for the info.  Previous phone was an E6 which despite some faults had fabulous battery life.  N9 seems to lose 30% of its battery life in <6 hours. Is that what I should normally expect? Have updated soft ware and hopefully adjusted settings for minimal battery drain.  Is there an N9 list that you know of or is it just what one always does w Nokia to conserve energy...

Re: N9 average idle consumption

I don't know of any best practices lists for the N9's battery. I do know that there are several threads that you can search for on this site about the N9's battery drain.

 

losing 30% < 6 hours doesn't sound normal. Even doing some texting and light web browsing at work, I can usually get through a 9 hour day at work (including one for lunch) and still be at around 70%. Less if I listen to music of course.

 

Maybe a stray program running in the background?  Also, how's the reception that you are getting most of the day? Where I work, I'm ok as long as I don't have to go to the underground part of the building. If I go there, any smartphone I take (if I don't remember to put it on offline mode) will start losing power pretty quick searching for a signal.

Re: N9 average idle consumption

Hi guys! My N9 looks little bit confused. After long time i downloaded Battery Usage app again to see what my consumption looks like. First day in Idle consumption was about 5mA when i didn't use N9 and after listening to music it was about 18mA. I think, that's ok. But than, i tried how much will Power Saving Mode improve the N9's battery life. I turned it on 13h ago (in the evening, so i didn't use N9 all the time) and now it shows me, that Avg Idle consumption is 24mA!

So i just turned on even flight mode and I will let you know how it behaves.

But, don't you know why is Idle cons. higher with psm? PLEASE help me with this! Thanks!
