    [SOLVED] Battery drain during standby

    I got a brand new MeMO Pad ME181C, I charge it for 100% then I lock the screen and go to sleep, I wake up the next morning and battery is at 60%, I leave it for a few more hours and it drains completely.

    Here's what I know:
    • Shutting down tablet completely => battery last for days without draining a single %.
    • Watching movies/YouTube and playing games => battery last for several hours.
    • Standby mode => battery drains within less than 24h.


    Things that I tried that didn't work
    • Draining the battery then charging it for 8+ hours.
    • Turning off wifi and putting tablet in airplane mode.
    • Turning on all power saving options.
    • Factory resetting tablet and not installing any new apps.
    • Rooting the tablet and removing most of the crap-ware.


    Any suggestions?

    Welcome to the forum

    Good detective work...

    Only one other thing I can suggest - do you have a microSD card in the tablet? That has been known to cause battery drain.

    ^ I did see the thing about MicroSD during my searches, but no I don't have one plugged in to the device, though tonight I plan to try plugging in one, maybe the device wastes memory because it keeps trying to connect to a microSD card but not realizing that there isn't one?

    I'm not too hopeful though.

    I don't think it is that - it is more likely to be an app trying to connect all the time. Email or Google Now or a Weather app are the likely culprits.

    ^ Would that still be the case even when tablet is in airplane mode?

    Check the settings>apps>running for information which might help determine what apps are using the battery resources. Some apps "run on startup" so whenever you power up the device they start running.

    Yes it would, Just because the app cannot connect because you have turned off the wireless connectivity does not mean that it will not be trying to. In fact it might even be trying more often because it cannot connect...

    I've tried turning off all sync operations for email and gmail, still didn't solve it...

    I did try to contact Asus via MyASUS app, and someone replied to me, this is what they said:

    i sorry to hear about your problem with the battery

    i think flash a new firmware and karnel might help you

    here is the link

    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Eee...3_1_23_168.zip

    http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Eee...3_1_23_172.zip

    just be sure to backup all

    and here the link to see the firmware updates

    and ver.

    Tablets - ASUS MeMO Pad 8 (ME181C) - ASUS

    i wish it help you

    have a good day
    Problem is, the link she gave me is for the JP SKU, whereas my tablet currently has the WW SKU, can someone please explain the difference to me? could it be that the problem is that my tablet came with the wrong SKU installed?
