    Infinity battery life problems following the 4.2.1 update? All posts here please.

    We have had several threads started since the update on battery life problems.

    Some of those posts were moved into the firmware update thread, others have become live threads. Because we try hard to keep things organised for our members, to enable the sharing of problems, solutions & general discussions, I have started this new thread.

    This solution was successful with the Infinity Dock "saga" - that thread is still very active & worked well, so I thought I would repeat it here.

    The posts quoted in the second & third posts are taken from a few different threads & this thread has been referenced in those locations. (I couldn't just copy them into this thread for the same reason I can't just "merge" the existing threads - the dates & timings differ & this means the posts get confused)

    I hope together you find some solutions & answers if you are experiencing this problem.




    Please stay on topic & only discuss the battery life issues here. Any off topic posts will be deleted without warning, so that this this thread stays clear for those experiencing this issue & trying to track a solution.

Can or should I prevent Maps from being a startup ap and is my impression that this problem has just started recently because of some sort of program upgrades. Or did I do something wrong to cause this problem.

    I looked at several startup managers to solve the problem and System Tuner looks like it might work. Any thoughts.

Last evening took it off the charger an played a little while . The back of tablet got hot as hell. So set it aside to cool down . I had only played most wanted for a bout 15mn. picked the tablet up the keyboard battery is drained to 0% again and the tablet is at 67%.

    I did do a cold boot the other day but I don't think it made a difference . So I ran Asus backup which used 10% took me down to 57% . Think I'm going to try preforming a FDR and see if that helps. I did check to see if there was anything that was chewing up the battery in the battery app . It showed my WIFI as being the biggest user then Screen .

    3. Cold Boot
    4. Factory Reset (had started get a lot of lag lately so wanted a fresh start)
    5 Cold Boot
    6. Install Apps
    7. Cold Boot

    Since then I have cold booted a couple of times and I am loosing about 10% battery life per hour, maybe a little less. I almost always keep my TF700 docked. My usage is showing 76%-78% as wi-fi battery drain. I usually go 2-3 days without charging, and have had to charge during the day the last 3 days. I don't really want to turn the wi-fi off during sleep.

    Also seem to be getting random reboots once a day now. I have always got them once a week or so, but its been once a day sine upgrade.

    Anyone else having these issues? Hoping we can find a fix until the next firmware update. I'm not apposed to putting CM10.1 on it, I have it on my GS 3 and love it.

    Also, I really appreciate any input, but I don't believe in multiple factory resets and would rather not debate it here.

    Thanks for reading!

The problem is with having location services turned tuned on. This is independent of Google maps and will still continue even if maps is disabled. What leeshor said about an app interfering may be true but it wasn't in my case.( continued to happen after factory reset with no apps installed) I still recommend a full factory reset ( it will solve many of the other small "hiccups" in the system) but first try this. Go to settings find location access on the left collumn two thirds down the page and click on that. Then slide the blue switch that says "access my location " to the off position. To find out if this has worked you will probably need good a cold boot/hard reset (does not delete any files or settings only cache) you can find(steal) the link for instructions on this in leesor's or any moderators signature.

    I hope this helps you and I still would reccomend the factory reset to straighten everything out (you can use the Asus app backup app to save your application data and copy anything else over to a micro SD or cloud storage)

    I was hoping that Asus had fixed some of the issues found on the tf300 when they released the firmware for the tf700

    I was having a battery issues. I was loosing about 10% an hour with the Wifi using about 78% of the battery life. As of this morning I have been off of the charger for about 3.5 hours and docked and I have 96% battery life on the tablet and 100% on the dock.

    The only thing I have done is last night I disconnected from my router, turned wifi off then back on, and re-connected to my wifi. Hopefully this will hold. I'm hoping the initial connection to my router during setup after the factory reset was just unstable and is now fixed.

    I'll give it a day or two and repost.

    For anyone who viewed this thread and wondered where the "helpful posts 2 & 3" mentioned in the OP went - well they vanished into the ether & I have just noticed their absence and reposted them.

    Turn off GPS and ASUS Sync, should solve that. Also make sure when the tablet is put to sleep wifi turns itself off,the settings is at the bottom of the ASUS customized settings. The GPS and ASUS sync can be shut off via the notification center in the navigation bar.

    good advice but also for newbs in settings-power saver, not only are all those options there to disable or enable but also "wi-fi off" during sleep that makes a big difference especially if you have a lot of "free" apps that use wifi even when you aren't. i have gone through the most recent update and after a day/night in sleep mode(have the dock attached too) i still have 97% charge remaining.

    Agreed it is what every user should check if you want the longest battery life possible. Most of the time I can go to sleep with mine 100% and wake up with it at 99-100%. So for 6-8 hours, more even on weekend, that is a very tiny amount.
