I know this has been asked over and over again but bear with me I can't find the documentation and explanation thread it's buried among many others.

So i would like to know. When i enable the autorcm features my switch loses battery by roughly 25-30 faster. At a much faster pace than with no auto RCM enabled.

As i recall from last year's I'd get a additional of ~1hr±30 minutes of battery life without it being enabled.

I keep an usb loader at all times in my pocket so not having access to a PC isn't going to be much of an issue for me but anyways I'd like to confirm


Does AutoRCM damage the battery on the long run?
Should i just keep it disabled?

Hey
I put insulting tape on a ribbon cable so that it won't make contact with the battery and short circuit.
It's the left joycons ribbon cable if that helps
Does insulating tape have any impact on the battery?

    Not saying its not happening for you. Your image is right there. I just dont know why yours is so high and mine is so low. :)
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    It could be other factors high ram refresh rate etc
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    know a good app to double check? perhaps my phones own memory usage stats is full of shit. lol

    Samsung UI is probably a ram hog as it is
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Yeah. Could be a number of things. My old ass phone has a custom rom on it too so a lot of the bloat is gone, and its not using the moto UI
