    Default Recent battery drainage problem - DroidX

    I have a Droid X running Android version 2.3.3. My battery run-time has gone down about 50% over the last week. I have three batteries and this drop occurs with all three. Now, I get about 6 hours of run-time per battery before I have to switch to a new battery or charge the battery in the phone. I have not changed any of my settings or added any apps in the last week. Blue-tooth, WiFi and GPS are off. The brightness on my display is set for about 30%.

    Main Battery Usage is as follows:
    com.motorola.service.ma 45%
    Phone idle 19%
    Cell standby 14%
    Display 12%
    Android OS 4%

    What could be causing this sudden decrease in battery run-time and how do I correct it?
    Thanks.

    I would install Badass Battery Monitor, which has some good tools to identify apps that may be causing your excessive battery drain. It helped me.

    My battery lately has drained quicker as well. When I left work I would be around 30%. But now I'm at best around 10% - 15%.

    I have the VZ extended battery. I don't know if the recent update has anything to do with it.

    Completely stock. Never rooted.

    Default Solution to the problem

    I found the culprit to my problem. When I clicked Settings>Battery & Data Manager>Battery Usage>com.motorola.service.ma, I discovered that Microsoft Exchange Services was listed as an included package of com.motorola.service.ma. I then remembered that I had recently turned on "Data Push" for my Microsoft Exchange based email. I then unchecked "Data Push" in the email settings for my Microsoft Exchange based email so that my phone used the "Data Fetch" schedule. After about 12 hours, I checked the Battery Usage settings of my phone. The.com.motorola.service.ma item went from about 45% battery usage to about 8%. My battery life returned to normal.

    Figured out mine too. I had unchecked Sync over WiFi Only in data manager when I updated and forgot to recheck it.
