playbook battery drains rapidly after upgrading tablet os to version 1.0.3.1868

prior to updating the os i could leave the tablet in standby and on my commute home battery was around 70-80%. i updated last night and the same typical usage today was down to 22% battery. and the tablet felt quite warm. anyone else experience this?

Hi guys!! :Walkman:

 

The new software update is definetly going to change the parameters of your battery life.

 

As steved1 said before, there are 2 possible solutions for this:

 

1. The BlackBerry PlayBook battery can be retrained by fully discharging and fully recharging the battery a few times.

 

2.On the BlackBerry PlayBook, launch the Video Chat application and accept the User Agreement.

 

Just remember that to fully charge the BlackBerry PlayBook, make sure the charging (lightning bolt) icon is no longer displayed in the status bar before disconnecting the power source.

 

Also, you can turn off wifi and bluetooth to save some battery when you're not using it.

 

Good luck guys!!!

 

Please give kudos and mark as a solution if this worked for you.
