    Default iGO Android - Battery drain slowly but surely

    Dear friends,

    I'm trying for months to solve a problem. I think, since TMC functions via the Internet, the battery discharges slowly, however, that I have plug in. About 4-5% per hour drain the battery. When navigating long I remained without phone.
    My data:
    - Phone HTC One SV, OS Android 4.1.2
    - iGO 9.6.29.625048 (current), also trying to 9.6.29.390522, 9.6.29.625822
    Maybe I should buy a new phone.

    thanks for any idea

    You need to find a charger that gives at least 2.1A and try different cables from charger to phone. Some usb leads have very thin wires and only charge slowly.

    Some phones need a special cable to charge quickly.

    This is nothing to do with iGo and is set by your hardware, so for better answers, you need to say what the hardware is.

    Thanks to kalleh and hairydog,

    Exactly that was the problem. The apk. "Ampere" was a big help! At home i have 800 mA with 220V charger und in the car with 12C charger ONLY 20-100 mA.

    I bought the first new charger, but the largest surprise was the cable. Of all 8 cable that I had 4 discard garbage. With apk.Ampere I checked very easily in shop the cable and charger. And as always quality costs money.
