    After having a 950 since launch I was getting lots of battery drain, so I just replaced the battery. Immediately got only 10% battery drain where I'd previously got at least 30% or 40%. Could be worth a try!

    Some things to consider when battery drain rears its ugly head.

    OneDrive sync - are you sync'ing photos all the time? Playing music from OneDrive?

    Email sync periods (1hr, 30mins, push) = push sync's all the time since it supposed to be immediate. Also check People contact sync periods.

    Display on = probably the most egregious culprit. Try limiting screen on times and also brightness

    Notifications = the more apps you have to notify you of stuff the more it drains

    Cellular connectivity = also a big drain is when the phone tries to retain a cellular connection. You could turn off cell data and location. Both are big drains. Turn location on as needed only.

    Background sync and apps = try to limit these as well

    Battery Saver = enable at higher battery percentage, example: 80% instead of at 20%.

    Full wipe with Windows Device Recovery Tool. Do not restore from backup. Start fresh.

    Carry a larger battery pack and extra USB-C cables around and chargers. I have a 30,000 mAh battery pack with USB-C port and quick charge 2.0, and extra charge/sync cables. Remember to charge early and often. And remember to bring them with you.

    I also have car chargers as well.

    Same here but phone would randomly shut off, even when charging. Att didn't have anymore batteries, obviously, so they sent me a whole new phone with a new battery.
