power saving tip network android
Posted on 2014-11-28
We are working on an Android test which seems to be using up the battery very quickly so looking for ideas.
In the test, we are doing a network connection to a remote server every single second, 24/7. The test is a simple web connection to a target but we run it non stop with a 1 second loop.
This is killing the battery fairly quickly and I was asked if I could put this question to the experts and see if anyone might have any not so obvious answers.
Yes, not so obvious means exactly that. We KNOW we are killing the battery because the test is non stop, quick and 24/7 but that is the test, in trying to figure out how to save battery power.
Telling me that the battery is being killed over the obvious is of no value.
Telling me that the constant network access is killing the battery... etc, we know this.
Giving me some ideas on how we could save battery power, leads, etc, are what I am hoping for.
