I have a problem with Fancy widget.
My battery takes about 2-3 days to discharge and I'm happy for this, but at the end of the battery, before charging it, if I open the menu Device Info - Battery usage, I can see that Fancy widget takes from 13% to 30%. I think it is too much. I have also tried to set Fancy widget without auto update and without auto location but with no success.
Is it normal for you, this battery usage?
Sorry for my english.

Could you post a screen shot where it shows Fancy Widget is using 30% of the battery ?

I think its highly unlikely that any widget could use that much battery.

Lol, a screenshot where a Galaxy R lasts 3 days would be more interesting!

This is a screenshot.
Sometimes Fancy drains battery and sometimes no.

My friend which widgets of Fancy Widgets are you using ?

To reduce the battery usage I'll suggest you do the following:

- Configure Fancy Widget => Refresh Settings => Auto Refresh Never.

In the same menu do the following:

- Refresh on Unlock => Refresh Weather Only

- Unlock Refresh Delay => Set to 59mins

- Refresh on WiFi only => Tick(Optional)

- Now go to Location Settings => Untick 'Geo Location' & 'GPS'(Put in the location manually)

Do update here if this helps.

I'm using 4x1 Fancy widget with Lg skin but the same was without skin.
Now I try your specification but last week I have set the widget with no geolocations, no gps and no auto update without improvement.

I have used the 4x2 widget without even the Fancy Widgets being shown in the battery usage list, well maybe I am using other applications more.

You can also try to reinstall the app maybe that could help.

^ ^ ^ From the battery screenshot we can ascertain that he uses his handset sparingly.
