    Default Battery Drain?

    Just bought the Chromecast and am wondering how much streaming I should plan on before I murder my phone battery. I notice that the video doesn't play on the phone while it plays on my TV, which I'm sure helps, but it's a bit too early for me to know what it's going to do to my DNA battery.

    What have you noticed?

    Chromecast pulls from the cloud not your phone. There shouldn't be any battery drain due to Chromecast.

    Ya, your phone is basically acting as remote control, and not actually streaming the content.
