    Default Increase battery life

    Try turning off Google now. Games that utilize four core processor will cause serious drain on the battery. Any aftermarket chargers will be hit and miss. I'm looking forward 2 A charger that will connect to the Pogo. Any other ideas besides turning off location GPS etcetera that might be helpful?

    Default Re: Increase battery life

    settings change to ensure wifi and sync are off during sleep mode

    turn off sync mode until you NEED to do a sync, wifi when you need that, then turn off again when complete. turn off bluetooth when not in use, etc.
    turn off anything else like system sounds that are not required to max battery life.

    get a battery monitoring app if you don't like the built in functionality and check to ensure that screen is the major user of battery vs apps - you can see how much battery % is used by the various functions/apps in the device and remove any pigs. Some apps run way too much in the background, sync way too often, do not close, serve advertising whenever they feel like it, etc.
