    I know there have been other posts and discussions to various degree's on battery drain and particular to Android OS taking the most part of it. However I believe my phone battery is either on its last leg or this is normal operation. I can barely get 5-6 hours out of the phone with light use ( couple 10 minute phone calls, couple web checks, few texts throughout day, etc ). I have tried using Cyanogenmod 10 and didn't see much improvements in battery life overall as well. I am back to stock Sprint D710 Epic 4G Rom. The phone normally feels warm to the touch even while in my pocket, so something is keeping it awake but I can't figure out what. I even reflashed the ROM to fresh and only added a couple apps (gmail sync, google voice etc) thinking possibly tasker and groove ip where draining the battery, but didn't see much improvements either. So I am wondering what others think or have any suggestions or tips.

    Attached are battery screenshots to show use and drain.

    Well I believe its the original battery that was shipped with the device, so little over a year old. So I guess its possible just needs battery. I did get about 16 hours out of it on Cyanogenmod 10 and running tasker to turn airplane mode on and keep wifi active for groove ip only calling. But ill look at trying a new battery and see if that helps.
