Thread: Gaming Battery Life

Recently I started playing Scrabble on the iPhone and I'm really liking it. It's a fun little game that would be amazing if it was online The shocking realization came after playing for 25 minutes and seeing my battery drain by 14% !!! WTH is going on, I mean it's Scrabble not a racing/FPS game, how much CPU could it possibly take. I'd be scared to see an online game on the iPhone, what would that last like an hour? Is everyone else seeing these same battery drains after playing games?

Yea, pretty much anything you that requires constant cpu usage will unfortunately drain the battery very quickly. Invest in a car charger

... don't forget the constant screen usage. it all comes together. I have my screen brightness at about 15-20%, that saves a lot of battery while gaming!
