Why is my iPhone battery draining?

Last weekend I was at PubForum (now E2E Virtualization Conference) in Dublin Ireland. During the sessions I used my iPhone once in a while to check twitter, nothing more then usual.

My battery however, was draining really fast. I had to charge my iPhone three times a day and still found myself with an empty battery in an Irish pub.


Battery life of an iPhone is short, especially when you use 3G, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth etc. In Ireland I had most disabled, WiFi was sometimes connected. Even closing all apps and rebooting the operating system did not solve the problem.

Métro Paris

Last weekend I was in Paris, the city of love. And Paris has a lot to offer. Besides the cultural highlights like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame and Pont Neuef the city has lots of great streets and gardens (like the Jardin Luxemburg).

During my stay I used my iPhone daily. Usually a reason to argue about but this time I had a good reason: “The Métro Paris Subway” app.
