Battery Usages

AdGuard as a long help page about battery usage but I really can not make sense of it. It is long and confusing for what should be a simple answer. So I am looking for simple answers and any information. 1. With AdGuard on will it drain my battery faster with it on vs if it was off? 2. Does it us a lot of battery power and will I see my battery draining faster when it's on? 3. The more filters I turn on say I have 5 on will that drain my battery faster vs if I only had 2 filters on?


Thank you

If you actually notice issues with battery drain, more than likely an app in the background is looping requests which are being blocked by AG for Windows. Using the filtering log to try to identify such apps might help quite a bit.

Otherwise, no, I've not noticed issues with battery drain.

Sorry to bring back this old thread, i'm presuming this is what is happening to me as the battery loss is pretty dramatic despite the built in usage showing very little. Apologies if there is already an article on this but how do I go about seeing if there are looping requests and what to do with the app (uninstall or more I can do with adguard)

Check "filtering log" in adguard menu.
If there's a lot of the same redundant address highlighted in red, then click on it, unblock/whitelist it.

I think clearing your "app management" in adguard then sorting to "blocked count", could also help to find a culprit.
