Droid 2 Getting Extremely Hot and Draining the Battery

AndroidIs your droid so hot you that you think it might melt? Is the battery dying quickly? That is exactly what happened to me recently. My phone was fully charged, as it is every morning when I take it off of the charger. Shortly after I got to the office, I grabbed my phone from the case and it was extremely hot. I also noticed that the battery was all but dead! Next, I opened my corporate sync account and all of my email was gone! Obviously something very odd was going on with my precious Droid 2.

I plugged it up to my extra charger at work and let it charge for a while. By lunch, it still wasn't charged; it was only around 30%… ugh… While I was at to lunch, I tried the charger in my truck… it still wouldn't charge and it was still VERY hot. The phone was so hot, that it was starting to take its toll on the OS, the missing email for example… The overall interface was lagging a bit as well.

In a final attempt to figure it out, I was going to remove the battery for a bit and put it back in. I flipped the phone over and that is when i noticed that the battery cover wasn't on 100%. It was slid down about 2 millimeters. I slid the cover back on and the phone started cooling down almost instantly! It started charging fine again and I was able to remove my corporate sync account and read it to get that working again.

How crazy is that? The battery cover not being in place correctly on the phone just about fried it for good!

So… if your phone gets really hot and the battery dies, be sure to check the battery cover before you melt the thing.
