    Question Extreme battery drain on spectrum POST-ICS


    Anyone having massive battery drain after upgrading to ICS? I see Bionic users on this site are having this issue. The phone has been able reach 100% for a couple days after updating but today it just wont charge.

    Notes:
    On Monday and Tuesday my gave me a message of "Save battery life: unplug phone" using the generic car charger.
    TODAY
    *I also got a message "slow charging" today using a generic car charger. The LG charger has not displayed this message.
    *Battery life the past 10 minutes has gone from 60% to 46%. Only sync and location & google Search are running. GPS and Wi-Fi are off.
    Ran CPU Spy and my phone has spent the past 4.5 hours with peaks above 1200 mhz

    My thoughts are to:

    1. Root
    2. Reset Battery Stats
    or
    Call Verizon
    or
    Reset the phone ( Bionic users reporting this doesn't work)

    Any thoughts?

    You may try a factory data reset,this has fixed a lot of post ota issues. Its seems like most people who took the update via ota are having goofey quirks. Also clean out your charge port on your phone, just a little compressed air. It was reported to help the constant slow charge issue and worked for me.
