When the Droid diode flashes: inconveniently discharged
So I get home for lunch and I notice my brand-new Motorola Droid is flashing a little red diode at me.
It says my battery has only 5 percent charge remaining.
But... but... but... I say to the phone, I haven't been making you do anything. No surfing, no checking email, a bit of texting but that's all. I've used it more heavily with no consequence, so why all of a sudden is it almost totally drained?
Since I'm at home, I put it on the charger and, in the time it takes me to make and eat lunch (which is to say, about 15 minutes), the battery is fully charged.
Might just be a glitch. I've had this happen with phones before, one time and then never again.
These are fairly standard tips, and I was doing most of them anyway. Bluetooth and wifi are turned off, my phone display goes off after two minutes. I don't use it for music or movies.
The one thing I have not turned off is the locator services used by mapping, both wireless and GPS. That will be the next thing I try.
But does anyone have any more ideas, or similar experiences with the Droid? Or enough time to know this is just a glitch?
Thanks in advance.
