    On my battery, it says sd card is taking up 21% of my battery. Does anyone know what this is and how to fix it.

    P.S ~ how do you post a screenshot so I can show you.;)

    Volume button and power button. Press at the same time. Saved in gallery , then open image upload web site and upload your screenshot. Later click on the image icon in this rich text editor and add uploaded image's link.

    Since one week i noticed a considerable quick battery drain on my Opo, which normally lasts around 1 ½ day :(
    So far i was very happy with my phone (got it in August 14), battery always lasting longer than most of my iphone friends...
    Phone says that sd card ist now taking 29% :( does anybody has an idea about what this means?
    Sometimes the Opo ist getting warm too. When in normal use after half a day the battery is empty now. What can i do?
    Version is CM 11.0-XNPH05Q

    will take a moment, battery is down and i'm charging ;)

    What kind of screenshot do you mean? Battery stat?
    On top is sd card 28 or 29% , next is screen/display 18%.

    Yes please. I've never seen SD card in Battery statistics... Is that exactly what it says?

    Can you install wakelock detector or BetterBatteryStats?

    Give it a full battery cycle and then check which wakelocks you have.

    I'm curious to know what is causing this...

    I'm curious too :mad:
    Thought of contacting the Opo support...
    Wakelock? I have no idea what this could mean...
    I want my battery to work alright like it did before :confused:

    wakelock is only working for root.
    Battery stats doesn't work. I installed it but cannot open it.

    Guess you'll have to root it then. Wihtout the info regarding wakelocks noone will be able to help you unfortunately.

    you mean no way to get rid of this without root? :(
    Does anyone have a better idea? Thought of rooting the device a few times already but don't want to be forced into it. It's only 6 month old and I would prefer to keep the warranty...
    What about the SD card that is probably sucking the battery? What is it for and how can I possibly change this behaviour?
