    Battery drains in 5 hrs stays warm -very hot while charging

    hey all you diagnostic studs!

    Earlier this week my nexus1 started battery lost power rather quickly. At the time, I was listening to Slacker Radio, the batterty got real low, it then went down to 0 and shut the phone off.

    I turned the phone on and it shut off again (battery too low). I then turned it on again and immediately put the usb charger on. It took a very long time to charge just to about 50% It got pretty warm. Ever since then, the phone is always warm to hot and the battery dies within 4-5 hrs.

    Now, when I charge with wall charger, it charges ok, but takes a long time and get hot.

    I took the battery out and plugged the usb charger in. The light flashes orange then, green real fast every 2 seconds. I am curious if that means anything???

    I am guessing my battery is fried but not sure.

    The phone stays pretty warm almost all time.

    The only things that are running are:
    settings
    avg antivirus
    COL reminder
    Remind Me
    Android Market
    Maps (this is now always running, if I shut it down it comes back a few minutes later, not sure if this is normal)
    Android Keyboard

    Do you guys think I have software problem, battery problem or worse a phone problem? Any help would be much appreciated. I can repay you with good automotive advice (if wanted

    Sounds like the battery is toast.
    You could try checking the battery health with a market app? I remember finding a great app a few months back, but I'm struggling to remember what it is...

    I've been impressed with Battery Doctor:

    Just to add more info to this current issue I am having...
    T mobile sent me a text stating, "I used over 5GB of data this month. Your data speed has been reduced fot the rest of the billing cylce per the terms of your plan."

    **(I had recently tweaked my plan just before this issue with the battery draining and being hot)

    Whenever I look at my phone it is always shows "3G" I know I can switch to "2G" for better battery life but, (I never had this issue before).

    Is there anything that TMobile has changed on their end of things that might be draining the battery quicker?

    Thanks, Jeremy

    On a side note, the battery stays good if the data is turned off.

    Sounds like something is using a lot of data...

    Download Network Counter by mapeapps, and monitor it to see what's using your data.

    You could also go to the Accounts & Sync settings, and make sure Music Sync is disabled in your Google account...

    I can check out that app and I'll see what it tells me.

    Every time I check running apps, "Maps" seem to be running.

    Background Data was also "checked" I assume that is normal though, as I get emails and whatever else needs the internet.

    Are there any other settings, I should be looking at?

    Thanks for your help, your generousity will not go overlooked.

    Does it say that Maps is doing all the up/downloading?

    Maps is only responsible for 10.5 kb in and 1.8kb out
    com.google.process.gapps says 290kb in and 86 kb out.
