Posted else where but was told to post here.
I just install the new update a couple of days ago and now my nook HD doesn't seem to hold a charge. It will pop up that my battery is critically low with no prior warning while actively reading. Turned off wi-fi thinking maybe that was the issue.
What I am also noticing is a plug it in. And within a few minutes I have a charge of 44% or better. Even when it charges fast it doesn't charge that fast. So I unplug and within an hour I'm back to critically low.
I know I'm a heavy user especially while off of work for two weeks but it would go all day even with heavy wi-fi use without going dead. This morning I unplugged it. Headed to church. Had no one in my nursery so I was reading and within 90 minutes getting the critical low battery.
It seems like the update is either doing something in the background that is killing the battery or that somehow the true battery capacity is no longer being read correctly.
Anyone else having these issues. I have the warranty and not sure if I should be calling this in or not.
The problem is I get no warning just a critically low battery warning. So I quick turn it off if I'm away from home or plug it in if I'm at home. Then suddenly has has 50% battery so clearly the battery isn't drained it just is having some weird glitch. Last night I read my nook for several hours in a row just like in the past, plugged it in before bed. Got up this morning, unplugged, and in 51 minutes I got the ciritical battery warning. I plugged it in and then looked at the battery usage in settings and I had 49% battery. I'm very frustrated with this update.
Also have some glitchy stuff with a couple of apps. Try to open File Digger and Overdrive opens.
Hope it gets reupdated soon because you can't take it back to before the update.
