SD card and battery drain


Dec 19, 2011
used GN for a month now and very happy with it. Just notice that if I put the SD card in, it drain battery a lot. normally my battery drain is 25ma but with sd card in ,it increase to at least 65 ma or more. try different type and size of SD card but make no different. Have I done something wrong or is it normal?
Thanks but once I pull the card out, the battery drain back to normal. is that mean i have a faulty sd card slot on my GN ???

Did you Unmount the card before removing it? I have read on the XDA forum that if you remove a card without unmounting it, you will have excessive battery drain until you do a factory reboot.
