Blackberry Z10 battery life - was good now it drains in a few hours

Good Day,

 

We have had the BB Z10 (two phones) for over a month with no issues with battery life.  Last week one of the phones battery loses its charge in about 4 hours with next to no use (only several emails, no phone calls or browsing.)

 

Both phones have the most recent software upgrade which was to extend battery life.

 

The other phone will go for about 16 hours with moderate use on one charge.

 

Can anyone pinpoint what to look at what would be casuing the battery usage?

 

Thanks

Check and see if your WiFi is on. I had (have) the same problem when I leave it on and go to work. The phone constantly searches for WiFi and the battery at a record pace. I turn it on only when I am at home or where I can access WiFi, other times I leave it off.

 

I also hear the Ebay app is a huge drain.

 

I also limited the home pages, I had over twelve that i think were constantly updating. I limited it to one.

 

Maybe one or all of these will help.

 

Regards.

It's always funny when it's someone else.
