    So...my post early about 'device storage' was misguided. Between the time I noticed the high battery drain from a process & actually posted about it, in my mind I changed the name from 'security storage' to 'device storage'. Anyway, having spent some quality time with Google yesterday, I find that having security storage as battery eater, while not common, does occur on a number of devices. I just wish I could figure out what app triggers it so I could get rid of it without doing a FDR & re-installing app by app.

    I'm not certain what you are referring to when you say security storage. Are you talking about encrypting the internal storage?

    'security storage' is the name of a process running that's eating 12-15% of battery

    Are you using a microSD card?

    Yes....but if I remember correctly that process is not related to the SD card.

    Maybe, maybe not. Does the same thing happen with the SD card removed. I asked the question for a good reason.

    Yes, it does. In fact, my tab went bonkers yesterday. Since I was a few days under Costco's 90 return, I took it back & got a new one. Without an SD card ever having been inserted, there was security storage at work, eating 16% of the battery

    I've never seen that on any of my many Android devices so I'm at a loss to explain it. Wish I could.

    Yeah, I was a little sad to see that process running right out-of-the box. I was hoping to tie it to a particular app.
