    Battery

      Anyone experiencing major battery loss with the 2.1 update? I usually don't have to charge mine for a while, but it is losing battery fast. And charging is taking a longgg time. Usually my nook charges super fast.

       

      Thanks!

          I'm also experiencing this.  It still happens even with an app killer which should stop some apps from constantly searching the internet for new updates or such.  It took somewhat less juice when I turned off my wifi.  My nook also takes a good 2 hours to charge.

            I think its all the Google stuff running in the background. I have app killer and usually see 4 google entries running. Battery now runs down twice a day instead of charging once. I had installed a couple games from Google but after I closed them, they still showed as running in the background. after killing them, some actually showed right back up. I ended up uninstalling them.

              Mine's the same as it was before. I charged it on Friday morning and got the 15% warning at lunchtime today. 2.5 days was pretty average with my usage.

                  It probably depends on whether you are connected to your wifi or not. Connected, it doesn't last nearly as long unfortunately. Since most of what I read is online, my HD+ is online all day and evening. I charged during last night and right now, it has only 29% of it's battery left. :smileysad:

                      I always leave mine connected to wifi so I guess that's not an issue for me!

                    It can't help that, while on Wi-Fi, my nook HD+ appears to be syncing my library every 30-60 seconds. This  is obvious from the status message that appears near the top right of the display. Is anybody else seeing syncing this frequently? Is there any way to reduce frequency of syncing in settings?

                        EEis4ME, great to hear you're getting amazing battery life.

                         

                        Mr-Weatherbee (keep thinking of Archie) - I don't know any way to change how often it syncs. I get syncing message every time I turn on the screen of my HD+ but not every 30-60 seconds.

                         

                        Just check and see if you have any apps or books stuch in 'downloading' status. If so, see if you can hide them in your profile or send them to the Cloud.
