How to caliberate sola battery

I'm using Sola for over two months and my unit is working fine. I'm running firmwire version 6.0.B.3.184 and for the last few days I'm seeing that my battery drains out faster than it used to be. Before I used to get a day full of juice but now my battery is dying few hours earlier whereas my usage pattern is same as before. I have a task manager installed and I switch on bluetooth, wi-fi, internet only when it is required. My display brightness is also set at a lower level and I have no reception issues in my area. Any suggestions please??

Re: How to caliberate sola battery

I'm sticking with .564 for now. Only issue i'm having is with the flickering screen.

The battery can last up to 4 days if i dont use a Live Wallpaper, after 21:00 until 7:30 in the morning Power Saver turns on with everything but the Phone Network online , and i'm usig the phone just for talking purposes and SMS. It cuts down to about 2 days if i start using Wireless and browse the net, play games from time to time.

I've noticed from time to time it does have a tendency to drain faster. I usually do a full charge until the charging symbol dissapears. And then do a restart of the phone. It helps with stuck apps that keep running in the background

Re: How to caliberate sola battery

Do you experience any better battery performance if you uninstall the task manager?

Have you tried to reinstall the phone software?

I will uninstall the task manager and check the results and I did not do any re installation of software as my unit is running fine. Moreover I'm waiting for the ICS update instead of reinstalling my firmwire. I will post the results after I uninstall the task manager.
