AdGuard Premium for iOS DNS protection draws a lot of battery

On iOS 15.1, I have high battery usage in the background with DNS protection. And that, it seems, with the encounter notification in conjunction with Corona warning app (https://apps.apple.com/de/app/corona-warn-app/id1512595757). I have already uninstalled and reinstalled AdGuard Premium. But without disabling DNS protection, my iPhone 13 Pro loses about 20% battery capacity in an hour because AdGuard is constantly running in the background.

Most likely, this is due to the fact that some app (e.g. Corona warning app) constantly sends a request to some DNS address, and AdGuard blocks it.
You can check it as follows:
  1. Go to Activity tab
  2. Click on the three dots to reset the log then click Yes
  3. Leave the device for a while
  4. Check Activity tab
There should be blocked records there. If so, just unblock the request.

I am having same problem Adguard DNS pulling about 15% of a full battery charge in background. This seems much and is up there in the top 3 with my most used apps (like safari in the foreground for 3hrs)

When doing the above, how do i recognise blocked records that i should unblock? I am guessing that i should not unblock ALL records but only the ones i trust that are using a lot of power to block? Or don’t i understand how this is working? Thanks
