    Since this is a high-traffic area, I figured I'd ask here.

    My Nexus 7 2nd Generation is amazing (My opinion) and everything, except it has died twice due to an unknown factor/app or feature.
    It's currently running Android KitKat (4.4.2).

    It has happened once before and it was a bitch to solve until I figured out how, luckily this time I knew how.

    It died during the night, it had something drain the battery until complete and utter zero, I have no idea what could've done it as the default battery information is kind of vague in what has been going on and my current battery application doesn't check things like that.

    My question is, to avoid this happening again is there some app that I could use to log what application drains the most so that I can check out why once I've determined which app it is AND is it harmful for the li-ion battery to "die" completely? I've heard that it is, but I have no clue.
    By dying I mean absolute 0% or 0.000001 (This time it had enough power to blink an indicator at least)


    (After the battery has been "dead" it's a bitch turning it on or even charge it. If I put it in the default charge it boots up for a second to show the battery charge on the screen, then it dies and avoids charging. If I try to turn it on I get the same thing. I have to sneak my way in to bootload mode to then let it charge for a minute or two and then restart the device).

    Any help at all would be appreciated, I don't feel like having this happen a third time as I'm uncertain that it may or may not damage my device, and that I don't want to, at all.

    Its more than likely a harmful application I presume you have yours rooted and you may have given root permissions to a harmful/misbehaving app
    Altough I don't actually know of a app to check witch app is using the most power

    I'll check to see if there's anything out of the ordinary allowed su.
    - I can't really say there are, unless it's hidden, but I doubt that. I have;

    "Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.”

    I don't think kinetic energy is the way to go, since it works to boot it if I hold the buttons for bootloader while plugging in the battery.

    Maybe it's water powered? Just pour a big jug of water of it.

    Maybe that was the lamest attempt at a joke or troll I've heard in over a week.

    Are you retarded? How does water generate an electrical currant without use of a turbine?

    I have seen a few tests that can be interpreted either way, and the same goes for the talk in my circles but my general experience is that besides having to plug in and unplug the device from a charger a couple of times to start recharging it I did not notice any failures or decrease in battery lifespan.

    I've heard different things each time.
