Today I've got my PlayDate after 8 months of waiting. So far I love it To save battery I'm using deep sleep mode.
I had one moment though, when I feared that my device got bricked so fast.
- I've put my PlayDate to deep sleep by holding the sleep button for several seconds.
- When I tried to wake device up with sleep button it did nothing
- I had to use hard reset with button hidden behind crank dock
Now I'm afraid to use deep sleep mode again Is this common issue on 2.0.3? I've seen similar post on the forums.
For what it's worth, my Playdate lasts a week or more easily, on just regular sleep with the system clock showing. Even with a download or two happening.
I know it’s supposed to. Unfortunately my device lost like 1% per hour of normal sleep now, so I’m pretty sure it won’t stand a full week without charging And charging it often will degrade battery in time, which I really want to avoid. Also having a battery percentage always, visible and not only during charging, would be great
I see, sounds like something's not normal with your unit—but with any luck it may just be the displayed %, which is only approximate and I've always seen weird variation in that #. (And maybe the displayed # could get an OS update in future?)
So if the % drop seems to show it would only last 4+ days, it MIGHT still last the week or more that it should.
