Parent article: XBMC comes to Android
I suppose the battery drain comes in hand with the extensive cpu/gpu usage XBMC interface is doing. From what I observe even without playback the XBMC running on my htpc is right now eating 24% of one core (E450) for just sitting and displaying main menu (the same as is on first screenshot in this article).
And that I bet will be serious pita to get fixed properly.
