I have done some extensive battery consumption tests with the NMS addon being
NAT Plugin.I have been monitoring battery usgae for a while now and find that with
NAT Plugin installed and active i use 30-40% more battery.
The tests are run with a Samsung Galaxy S 2 with a genuine 2000 mah battery.
I have tried different location methods being WiFi not connected and GPS and
Wireless Networks all together or in single use and pretty much the same results
all the time. I have changed NAT Web portal frequency settings and still exactly
the same results with power consumption.
My main question is if there was a option to change the NAT Web Portal location
frequency to none would that prevent excessive battery consumption from the
And when needed to locate a device the user could simply select LOCK DEVICE
from the NAT Web Portal or change the frequency to 1 hour which ever is required.
As i cannot test such a feature all i can test is location methods and the preset
amounts with frequency of location in the Web Portal, and 1 and 12 hours consume
the same amount of battery, there is nearly no difference. So would none if added
to frequency make a difference.??
Otherwise it is a great app and addon for the Symantec Norton Mobile Security Android
