Default Battery draining

Anyone with high battery usage? I just powered on my tab and in 7 minutes I got 5% battery draining with screen off...

I had a similar battery drain on my Tab S on the first day, there was a service called I think IndexService draining a lot of juice. It doesn't seem to be there in the battery list any more so maybe it runs when you first insert a MicroSD card or transfer a lot of media over to the tablet?

I would highly recommend turning off Wi-Fi during sleep, I do this on all my Android devices and it saves a lot of battery life. Go into Settings, Wi-Fi, Options, Advanced and change the option "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" to "Only when plugged in"

This morning I've powered up my tab after one night long charging and battery it's 98 😮
It's my tab or a know issue?

I've not noticed that on my T700.

I've just charged this morning from the wall socket adapter at about 30% battery remaining. It's taken about 2:15 to reach 100% and I've been using the tablet for about 1 hour during that time.

I do loose about 1-2% charge overnight when the tablet is unplugged and on standby (not switched off). I'd say that this is about right for an android device and certainly no worse than any other tablet/phone I've ever used.

Same this morning. I've charged over the night with tab turned off. The Green battery on the screen says 100%. I powered up my tab and battery is 98%...

So...or powering up cost 2%, which is strange or there is something wrong in battery stats I think...

Have you tried charging with the tablet switched on (in standby) rather than switched off?

Maybe it needs this to calibrate the battery.

Yes, charging in stand by mode tab reaches 100%. Tonight I'll try again in stand by mode...

My "screen on time", is the same as my " battery time." I had my battery on 50% and it was also on power saver. The only time I don't use power saver is when I'm using games. My battery drain was for watching videos (YouTube, Netflix) ,Tapatalk app all day, and web browsing.




Almost 7 hours with 53% battery drain. That's fantastic for me and my usage.
