Hi all,

I was playing iPhysics last night on a pretty full battery. after about an hour the unit was pretty warm (like when charging, not alarmingly hot) but the battery dropped below 20% pretty quickly after playing. about 30 minutes later the battery meter was teetering between a quarter and a half. Is the battery meter that inaccurate? And do these game applications suck up that much power? iPhysics dosent seem like that much of a power hungry games. Im interested in seeing what other peoples experiences are on this.

I've noticed it sucks the battery pretty quickly.

Well, its two things - one the games do use some processor power - more than the audio & video which I believe are typically handled by a separate chip which allows them to use less processing power. Second, the screen is on all the time which sucks up battery life quickly.

Games like iPhysics, NES & GBA burn through battery quickly and heat it up...
