I have btsync on an android phone. The sync program is using a large amount of the battery and the phone was very hot. I shut down btsync and then the phone cooled down.

How can I keep the battery use down?

Can I set btsync to ONLY work when the phone is being charged?

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

Current settings are:
I have Auto-sleep On.
I have Go to sleep if no active transfers enabled.Set activity checks every  4 hours
I have Sync when charging enabled.
On charging activity checks every 15 minutes.

I have the excessive battery use with these settings.

I sent an email, with the logs.

 

I notice that when starting the program it reports 55.8gb 36.5 synced, 16812 files 1323 synced. 
I left the phone on charge and all became synced. I had turned it off  and next time the sync status was similar; many files not synced but only 1 file added

Actually, increasing battery life for Android Phone is not such a difficult thing as you think. To make your device run for a longer time, you only need to adjust some settings of your device like reducing the brightness of screen, disabling wireless network, quitting background software and so on.

Here some tips that could save battery life.It's very easy to handle.
1. Disable Background App Refresh
2. Enable Low Power Mode
3. Disable WiFi, Bluetooth & Airdrop When Not Needed
4. Restore Your Device

She was talking about a program, this is not a usual battery issue. And as I check on the date, this post has been made on 2016. I am 100% sure that this issue has been resolved.

There were issues with particular files not syncing and causing higher power usage. Removing the files fixed that problem. Power usage was still more than I wanted.

Now I have a macro that only starts Sync when charging and when charge state is over 96%.

This works for me
