    Hey guys, I don't know if someone already mention this before but I will tell you. Yesterday I was experience this batty issue either in my 920 build 10536. 3 hours after pull the charger, my battery running from 100% - 10% in 3 hours only. This is terrible.

    But I found some old ways to solve this problem. It use to work with old phone, but I tried this and it works. "Just try to put your phone to dead (0%/goodbye message) by keep using it. And then leave your dead phone without charge it for about 5-6 hours, maybe more (I don't know, I left my phone dead on night sleep). And then put it on charger BUT make it offline mode, or airplane mode so nobody can bother your phone. Don't use your phone until 100% charged and wait for more 1 hour still plugged in charger."

    That's it. My phone battery now last more longer than before. Unplugged from 2 PM and on 10 PM it still on 68%. A great battery improvement isn't it? Take a shot. Maybe this work with your phone too.
    I somewhat followed your advice and now my phone has gone from 15-20 % per hour to 1.3 % per hour. The difference was that I didn't left the phone dead for several hours but just 15 or 20 minutes.
    Additionally but a day later I disabled Facebook background process for an unknown impact in battery performance. I run with all the options on, bluetooth, wifi, NFC, tap to wake, glance at peek and normal "Save my device's location".

    I have around 2 years and 9 months with my Lumia 920 and replaced the battery at 2 years 3 months after I got tired of the phone lasting around 12 hours with full charge; the result was a whooping almost 14 hours of battery so I'm not really concerned about how much impact might have to let the battery die for the long term life expectancy of the battery. I had little respect to the battery since I was planning to upgrade the phone to the new flagship but none of the flagship were good enough to worth the price and/or weren't launched in my carrier frecuencies.

    10536 is pretty stable and fast.
    However just went back to 8.1 due to battery drain.
    I'm a 1520, average drain was ~2.5-3 % per hour, the phone didn't last through a day, although i used to get ~2days + on win8.1.
    Looking forward for a new built that resolves this.

    I made some tests and after disabling location service battery performs much better with less heating...

    No serious issues on my 830. I've rather enjoyed using this build in fact, a few minor niggles notwithstanding. However, the battery drain is a matter of concern for me. It's draining at least twice as fast as it used to on 8.1 update 2. And with minimal usage.

    For example, today, four-and-half hours after I unplugged my phone, I must have checked my Outlook app a couple of times, replied to the odd text message and yet, the battery is at 50%. On 8.1 update 2, under similar conditions, I would have 80-90% battery left.

    I did a hard reset after I installed 10536, by the way.

    It was terrible and unusable on 1520, it also had a lot of other bugs. 8.1 is heaven compared to how W10M feels now. I tested it for months but can't do it anymore.

    I went back to 8.1 and then directly to 10536 from there. Battery life was back to normal (0.9-1.5% per hour)

    Glade to hear that, I'm now pretty satisfied with battery, it's around 6-7% per hour which is not bad at all and all that with location enabled :D

    I was experiencing 10% drain per hour then came across this thread and most if not all tips helped IE turn most of the location service off, turn off most apps from running in the background (WhatsApp especially) . turned off NFC as well got it back to about 3-5 percent per hour which was a lot better but I still wasn't happy. so I did a hard restart hoping to revert back to windows 8.1 (didn't back up or anything so stupid) it reverted still to the windows 10 insider but .... battery drain now with still turning off everything I have secified as droped to 1.3% p hour on normal use (my Lumia 830 is a work phone so gets used lots while working). but none the less I am very happy now with battery drain and all the tips in the thread works great

    thanks!

    Heres my solution:

    Log off Skype and Skype Video.

    It worked wonders for me, better than WP 8.1.

    Because of L635 battery drain and occasional heating up after installing 10586 I have to went back to 8.1. (And because of lacking native txt viewer/editor).

    I stopped most apps from running in the background that didn't make sense.
    Also go to extras -> touch

    change sensitivity to normal.
    disable double tap to wake
    and if you want to add even more saving disable vibration feedback from the navigation keys.
    If you stop everything then it's not a smartphone anymore.

    Like I said, only certain ones. Most are running. In fact since the latest build I have all my apps enabled in background and battery is great.

    weird thing......yesterday my phone died because it run out of battery....after i recharge it it hold one day with usage and NOT on battery saver. :)
    so now the battery holds very good.
    Try to drain the battery completely and then recharge it to 100% like I did.....maybe it will work for you to
    If you want the battery in the 930 to not last long and need a new one then keep draining it completely . That's how batteries work (Lumia 930 Li-ion) .

    Draining the battery to shutdown every "blue moon" is okay. That will force a recalibration of the battery meter. But Li-ion batteries generally prefer to be constantly topped off to get the longest life out them. Also don't let them get to hot, or to cold.

    If you want to get better battery life try this . When the phone is charged to 100% take the phone off the charger . Don't leave the phone charging when it has reached 100% . Try to keep the phone topped up rather than letting it drop to below 50% charge . Keep the phone away from hot areas , batteries hate heat . Do this for a few days and see if the battery improves .
    Obviously the more things that don't use the battery the better .

    This is not about how to avoid draining the battery , but rather what in Win 10 makes my phone dead over night? Before the upgrade, the phone would last 3, even four days without charge, now with some bad luck, it discharges itself overnight.
    It is a Win 10 issue and I see no other option then to rollback the upgrade. This win 10 upgrade is a downgrade.
    Nokia Lumia 1520 . This is frustrating. I cannot understand why Microsoft scares the few users away with this freaking upgrade.
    It is like they don't want to be in the phone business anymore.

    Yes, they are aware as one can read in here

    Fixed issue that could result in unexpected battery drain while the phone screen is off.
    Windows 10 update history - Windows Help

    So I was hopeful and installed it. But as far as I can see, there is no improvement (Lumia 532).
    The mobile takes 50% in one day. While doing next to nothing. No surfing, no gaming, some WhatsApp messages
    and 90% of the time in lock screen. This is ridiculous. Especially compared to the WP8.1 time ...

    Does someone has the same experince with Build 10586.318 ?

    There are a lot of posts about fixing stand by battery drain.

    1 - disable all unuseful background apps
    2 - disable video uploads in Onedrive
    3 - disable Edge sync
    4 - use Wfi every time is available
    5 - change Ring to Production for stopping telemetry

    PS: you posted in wrong forum

    I have the same problem on my 1520. I wound up going back to 8.1 because of the battery drain and Lumia camera is just much better. I shoot a lot of videos with my phone so 8.1 is much better video and sound.

    I have a Microsoft Lumia.

    Installed Windows 10 and the battery life is atrocious. Tried everything mentioned on this forum and nothing worked. I am not sure why I should need to do anything. It is quite outrageous that a new OS would be released with such a major issue on phones made by Microsoft. Epic FAIL microsoft.

    So, re-installed 8.1 and my battery life went from going dead halfway though the day to remaining at 70% by the end of the day. Am happy again but will not be staying with Microsoft phones. There is only so much one can take.
