    I updated to WM10 10586.29 and now when my battery gets to 70% To 75% it will drain down do 2% in an hour. I have location, Hey Cortana and most background apps turned off and still get the drain. Any Ideas? Am i stuck till a fix is released?
    Also I just noticed while charging it takes forever, but when it get's to 40% it goes up to 100% in less than 10 min.

    So I did a soft reset with 70% left on my battery and when it rebooted it said it was at 2% and shut down.
    I plugged it in to my PC and it could not even reboot without shutting down, So I plug it into the factory charger and within 5 min it is back up to 39% charge. Any ideas?

    I'm using the Lumia 950XL and am having a similar problem. Check your Battery Saver to see what it's drawing the power so much. For me, it's the Messaging app, which is ridiculous!

    Nothing abnormal, it shows groove music at 25% but I use it 2 house a day. And 71% in use 28% background.

    On my 1520 Groove also used a lot, 27% in the past 24h. The phone used 64% of the battery, and a quarter of that is due ro groove. There's no way a music playing app should use more than a few percent of the battery capacity... right? What the heck is Groove doing?

    Today my 1520 battery drained twice on me, mostly the system is using the battery. Definately worse since the 12/17 update.

    Mine seems better since W10M Build 10586.36, the battery has not drained for two days now. Keeping fingers crossed.

    agreed on .29 battery drain is bloody amazing. More on that my area LTE coverage is so bad that it keep switching between edge 3g and LTE which made it worst. I see improvement in .36 build, but still draining :(

    How old is your phone? It sounds exactly like the battery is approaching the end of its life. No big deal - you can change it yourself or have a service shop do it.

    Calm down. I have W10 on my Surface, no complaints about the battery or performance. On phones battery life has just regressed to Androids and iPhones, which is to say it is average now. Keep in mind WM10 is not officially released for most of the phones that run it.

    calm down? dude I am calm, I'm just saying what EVERYONE thinks and feels.. and ummm I have windows 10 (second time installing) on my SP3 and the battery isn't so bad this time but the first time I installed it the battery lasted only 3 or 4 hours! now it doesn't even last as long as it did when I had win8.1 before... used to get like 10 hours.

    Yep, im on latest build now, it still drains faster, even im not using it. I guess i need to replace my battery but, here in PH, it looks like theres no service center i can go and also the battery of 1520 is difficult to find.

    I doubt you need a battery with a one year old phone, mine is two years old and the battery is fine now with current build, yes it drains faster than 8.1 but with moderate use i get home from an 10 hour day with 52%-54% battery left.

    My phone has not fully drained since i put .36 on it.

    Hmmmm.......... I agree with GazooAz, it's not likely to be the battery if the phone is only one year old.

    When did they stop making the 1520?

    My 1520 has this issue also.
    I charge it 100% after use one hour the message appear " Battery critically low " and after press OK it goes shut down.
    When I am playing games it just still 10 minutes or less and shut down.
    this issue appear after i update to WP10 and I back to 8.1 and the problem still.
    I am from Yemen - Middle East.

    The best way to check the battery performance on any phone is to hard reset it, then check the performance without any third party apps installed.

    After you get a measure of how the battery performs using stock OS, you can install third party apps and check the battery performance.

    This way, you will have a comparison for your own phone.

    Battery performance cannot be compared to other phones or other OS as the usage and setup varies for every phone and every OS.

    My 920 and 1520 gives me 14 hours of battery consistently on W10.

    I hear you... I even posted on the SP3 forum how much of a hit my battery life has taken since updating to W10... Same happened with my 640XL going from W8.1 to W10.. Waiting for my new 1520 I ordered and really not sure I'm going to do the Insider W10 upgrade on it, at least not until I see MS sorts out why battery life is taking a beating compared to 8.1. I used to get almost 2 days out of a charge on my 640XL but now barely a day and my SP3 isn't even close to what it was pre-W10. Sadly I've tried to use the recovery tool to revert my 640XL back to 8.1 but keep getting errors or failed install so due to fear or bricking it I'm waiting for my 1520 to arrive before any more attempts.

    Similar problem on 0.36 build too. For me an obvious culprit is the Messaging app. The app is spiteful. Hangs up often, is very slow to respond, has trouble showing me sent/received texts, heats up the left corner of my phone and often shows me duplicates of old conversations.

    Everything else runs beautifully smooth...even Groove. This shows up in the battery usage too where 10-15% of use was by the Messaging app when I sent exactly 3 texts today. Now I appreciate them trying to make it more like the one we had in WP7 with the Facebook integration but they've really broken it. I am at pains to explain why they felt the need to integrate Skype into messaging. It's a video chat platform...not really a messaging one. Skype is cumbersome to use when compared to Whatsapp or Viber or any other instant messaging app. Why force it into something it is not?

    Anyways, does any one have any solutions?

    Have you switched off skype in messaging app?

    Yes.. Back on W10 on my 640XL I switched it off,signed out and uninstalled the app Skype video was uninstallable) but still messaging drain ran higher then they should for sure, now I'm on stock 8.1 on my new 1520 and checked daily and messaging is only 5-6% drain I've texted average to high being holiday plus around 4 attached photos.. Windows Phone 10's messaging needs some tweaking for sure..
    Have to add, I'm running 8.1 with no restrictions (Cortana, Bluetooth, location, wifi all on plus brightness at medium) and at the end of a full day I'm at 65%.. Even with my old 640's less battery hungry processor and display it couldn't do that..
