  1. mark2410 added a post in a topic Dissapointed in battery life   

    im pretty sure the low battery life is cpu management.  ive got the hudle and a yogapad2 which should have a fractionaly better cpu but essentially the same.  the hudle always feels much more snappy than the lenovo but the battery life on the lenovo last forever.
     
    but you know its cheap and quickso i can live having to recharge it pretty much everday

    honestly i  see it ever getting L and i dont think i mind.
     
    i traded getting updates (ie buying a nexus 7 or 9) for the removable SD card slot.  while updates might be nice if they actually bring soemthing new but i cant imagine they do.  for me android peeked with jellybean concerning tablets and i still really miss being able to force the tablet UI but with it gone in kitkat, i dont see it making a come back.

    update, again.  so this moring plugging in the yoga 2 it was saying days again but leaving it plugged in anyway, i noticed 5 min later it had changed to hours.  it didn't do this list night though so what the F is going on i dont know.  could it be soemthing in the hudl2 charger thats making devices behave this way?  i dont see how it could be but the their behaviour is perplexing.

    Hey guys, so I also have a Lenovo yoga tablet 2. Also brand new and I have just noticed it do the exact same slow charging issue.  Plunged it in and said it was going to take 3 days to charge, did a power off wait 30 seconds then back on and it starts reporting it will only take a few hours.  I unplug then plug back in and boom back to days. Power cycle again and back to hours.
     
    Besides me owning them both the common feature is they are both on 4.4.2.  Is there maybe some problem with it and maybe some app interaction?

    so, im beginning to wonder does this charging bug affect ALL hudl's?
     
    i know not everyone would notice or think to come here and post but the two ive had had it and others here too have had multiple ones do it, so have we just been super unlucky or does it affect each and everyone?

    well, FFS the new one is now doing the hyper slow charge too.  if tesco are paying attention they had better get this fix soon, seems like a stupid issue to be having.

    oh, i use Nova too.  though the replacement came today and, touch wood, all is fine so far.
     
    im still not convinced its actually a hardware issue, possibly its a pin issue where the tablet isnt telling the charger its fine to throw 2 amps its way in the way it ought to because the software is buggy.  i really have no feekin clue though. if tesco want to say its hardware and swap old for new thats their business.
     
    oh btw guys the app i was using to show or fast charge rate is battery widget reborn.

    right, phoned tesco again about it and they said, if a factory wipe didnt cure it then its not a software issue, it must be hardware and so they want to replace it.
     
    sooooo, they are going to come tomorrow and swap it for a new one.  we shall see if the new one charges fine or does the same.

    well i am definetly still getting the sloooooooow charging thing.  if you power off, properly off and get the on screen battery symbol then boot up its charging fast.  a simple reboot is not sufficient.
     
    its clearly a software, not hardware problem.

    hmm, so just contacted the tech line and unserprisingly they wanted me to do a factory reset, and so far its cured the problem.
     
    now ill grant that ive only been 30 min with it but so far its cured.  i dont see why its worked but fingers crossed.
