[Q] Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 Battery Life Extremely Low. How to Find Cause?
First post, so hi everyone!
I bought this Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 about a year ago, it runs the original firmware with the recent Samsung update to 4.2.
Lately the battery life has become very short. This was not a gradual change, but something that seemingly happened over night. I charge the device with a travel adapter that claims to output up to 1 A. The battery monitor shows that charging works as expected and the device charges to 100 % .
In use the battery shows 100 % for a while, but after about 20 to 30 mins jumps to 4 % , giving me the low batter warning. I am travelling and the only change I can think of is, that mains power here in Canada is 110 V instead of the 220 V back home in Europe, not that I expect that to be a problem.
I don't notice the device getting warmer than usual, so I don't believe, that the battery really charges to 100 %. Is there anything on the software side I can do to investigate this further?
Thanks for any advice!
