hi. im new to this forum and im seeking help at fixing my droids terrible battery life. i have bluetooth, gps, etc. turned off but it still wont last more than 4 hours or so. the other day i took it off the charger at 100% around 7 am and put it in airplane mode while i was in school and it was at 30% by 1 pm. i did a factory restore and sbf'd the phone and it still just eats through battery. the phone has no water damage or anything. the only issue is once the battery dies the phone cant charge it. it just has a steady green light. i think this may be because the phone is taking to much energy and cant get enough to boot up? i dont know what else to try. any help is appreciated.

How old is the battery? Could just be dying and you will have to get a new one.

Yeah I think your battery is shot. You can find replacement batteries for cheap online.

Well how old are you batteries?

And are you going through all 5 in 4 hours? If not then I'm sure its just the one that's shot

The batterys are new. Two are Motorola oem and 3 are generic. I go through about 1 in 4 hours they all have the same amount of life before they die. I dont think its a battery issue

10-12 hours has always been my average on any ROM...not sure if you're using Battery Monitor... Check it out... Chose Usage... Thanks tap on the Battery Chart... Takes a few seconds...
Look for Solid Blue Lines for starters this will show you what is chewing up your battery...
