    Do you play those games with very big file size (NFS, Gta etc) or watch videos on YouTube?

    Did you overclock the processor?

    2.6 screen on
    1.4 screen off
    1.4 in call
    2.4 charging [screen on or off]

    Max clock 2.6
    Overclockable to 2.9

    Running greenify
    Frozen gmail
    Long sync on email
    No social networking at all
    Hevy game, vid, and music use.

    Jedix14 with bullet kernel.
    Kernel is fast without overclock because certan stability features are turned off. And it supports exfat. [Tho since last rom i might still be on saber kernel]

    I think with that bullet kernel and over clocked processor, expect your battery to drain faster.

    That I can gaurantee. If I was to do everything I could to get max life I could probably get 48-72 hours.

    But 18 is my target cuz well I keep a charger in my backpack, truck, and three at home, so who needs more than a day. Not me. So I focus more on target life and then MAX preformance.

    WOW, I could have sworn when I replied to this thread yesterday, the topic was about non battery draining weather apps, like the title says. This thread is COMPLETELY off track now.

    Mods, if you need help moderating, let me know. I've moderated several forums over the years.

    Sometimes during the natural course of discussion a thread may wander. Especially when your discussing battery life many people will chime in to share their experiences.

    That's not bad for a heavy user. Are you using the stock battery or extended battery.

    Sent from my HP Slate 7 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
    Stock. No it's not bad. But it hasn't been normal that's why I said surprisingly.

    I have a extended battery also which doesn't last any longer and that makes no since to me. It is double the stock amount

    All I can think of is your phone usage that is eating up your battery.

    The only non battery draining Weather app so far is the stock one. Only after i turn everthing off.....Which is ugly and doesn't go with any wallpaper.

    Are there any that don't have maps waking the phone every second????????

    I just ask Google Now. Takes one press of the Google bar, you say "Google, weather." And you're set.

    That way you don't need any weather widget using up you're screen. It also will make you look awesome to anyone that doesn't own a Android phone with Jelly Bean.

    You can get the weather and be awesome at the same time! You can't beat that, in my opinion

    That's good to hear. Last time I used BW's back about a year ago it was still a battery hog. Maybe the devs got a handle on controlling the battery consumption finally.

    I don't use have HD Widgets. I got it when it was on sale a while back. It worked great and is very customizable. But as I said I don't use widgets anymore, well except for the digital clock with the date, it come stock on the Note 2. Oh and I use the flashlight widget that comes stock on the Note 2.

    But for weather, traffic, news, everything else, ect... I use Google Now. Like I said in my other post. Google Now is awesome and it makes you look awesome, Lol. I only have 3 home screen pages. I like to keep it simple and clean.

    I've been using BeWeather Pro for about a year on all my Android devices and haven't noticed any battery drain issues on any of them. I use a 4x2 widget on the main screen set to a three hour auto update interval along with the temperature in the notification bar. All other settings (in the app) are disabled.
    +1000 on BeWeather Pro. Great home screen widget that allows you to either go into the app settings via a three-block menu button (see below) or tap on the weather info itself to go into the app itself, where you get Daily, Hourly, and Sun/Moon options plus a menu button with the best radar and satellite IR maps. Hands down the finest weather app available, and no battery drain.
