- Battery life out of an iPhone running Strava?
Turn off 3G and you’ll be able to run Strava (with the screen switched off) for hours. I used mine in Spain for 5 hours rides (with the data disabled) and it used 10-15% of a full battery (mine is a nearly 2 year old battered iPhone 4 so the battery is getting on a bit).Posted 4 years agoBFITHMember
My iPhone 5 only loses about 10% charge after a 2 hour strava – dont know wether the battery is better or worse than in a 4. As a comparison my 3Gs was usually flat after a 2 hour ride (from full charge). Age of the phone will have a big effect on battery consumption…..Posted 4 years agomrmoMember
this is the recording from a 2 month old iphone 4s. I did use it a couple of times to figure where i was so that would have used a little battery life to light up the screen. I did not turn anything off, but the signal in the forest and around Abergavenny probably wasn’t the best.
does this help.Posted 4 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
Mentioned in another thread: for long rides I have an external battery pack which I stick in a top-tube tri-bag with a cable to the phone mounted on the bars. Can handle multiple days tracking that way.
(Edit: I never usually bother turning off Bluetooth etc. Note that if you turn off 3G and wifi then it may take a lot longer to get an initial GPS fix)Posted 4 years ago
