Unfortunately games and other processor-intensive programs can drain device batteries very fast. To avoid, try and stay plugged into your charger while playing. Use the correct charger for your device.
This can occur when your device heats up after prolonged use. Let your device cool down for a short time before resuming play.
Battery life should be between five and seven hours when playing with fully charged batteries in the Portal of Power.

The Legendary Treasures Collection only tracks those treasures gained by placing a physical toy on the portal.
