z10 discharged quickly when holstered

It was about 80% full. I had it holstered and in a locker at the gym. When I finished, and took it out after the gym,  it felt warm and was almost dead. The battery was down to 12% and then drained in less than 40 min when not even being used. Any ideas?

Gord,

 

I also have the holster and when I put my phone in it, puts the phone in Sleep Mode.  The only thing that could cause your battery to drain so fast is that you mobile connection lost its signal  when inside the Metal Locker, then it keeps working hard to find a signal. I think thats why your phone was hot.  With my old Torch did that also.. You can test this by putting the phone in the holster tonight and let it sit there.

Also next time you are at the gym and you put your phone in the locker, disconnect the Mobile connection, and I think you will be fine ..

Thanks Arsen. That makes perfect sense. I never would have figured that out. Have a great night.

Re: z10 discharged quickly when holstered

My battery wouldn't last an eight hour work shift without it draining. A guy at work suggested I turn off the WiFi when I'm not anywhere using it (like at home or a Tim Hortons).

 

I flip the WiFi off now and the battery lasts me two days almost. The phone uses huge amounts of battery power constantly searching for WiFi if it's left on.

 

I guarantee...that will help.

 

Regards,

Mark.

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