My Xperia V was draining much battery while sleeping, so yesterday I flashed cm-10.1.3-RC2 hoping it could get better.

But it's still draining almost 30% in a period of 8 hours, while I'm sleeping.
I can notice a huge drain caused by Google Services and have already greenified some apps.
It can't be normal, right?! Could someone help me?

Despite this problem, now I have a really better smartphone... So, thank FXP and, please, keep supporting Xperia V. :thumbup:

Not sure if this question belongs to be an own thread...but ok. here we go.
from my experience with Cm i can tell you, if you want better battery life, then you maybe should use a stock firmware!

I used CM and AOKP some weeks before, but the battery drain wasnt normal, not to say horrible.
But this is my experience. You should ask in your CM-Rom Thread, or CM Q/A Thread i think.

I'm a new member and I couldn't ask this in CM thread

I understood what you've said, but even using stock rom I was having that percentage of draining at night...

Do you have a Xperia V?

Could you (or someone else) tell me how much draining is considered normal in the period I've mentioned before?

30% in 8 hours means that on average your battery will last a day.

That is perfectly normal.

Also, if you keep flashing stuff and installing apps then it drains battery quicker. Leave it alone for a week and see if it settles down.

So, i guess its normal? But an actual CM User can give you better report. Not using it anymore.

Omg, my Galaxy s3 loses only 2% in the same period while sleeping, it's a BIG difference

I had been facing this problem since I bought this phone (2 months ago), that's why I tried to flash CM yesterday... So, I think that nothing will change if I just wait...

Anyway, thank you guys...

apologies, I didn't see that it was 8 hours while you were asleep. That is not right. But it may be because its working hard after a flash. Please leave it for a while and it should settle, or install better battery stats app (Free on xda) and see whats keeping the phone awake.

Also check what your cpu is set at and the governor, if its on performance it will be maxing out all the time..

The governor is ondemand and I didn't change the clock of cpu...

I'll install the app and come back with a screenshot, so I think it'll be easier to find some problem

Hi,

I'm running the stock firmware. The battery drain during one night (about 8 hours) is ~ 5%.
