    Question Droid battery life is really this short?

    Okay, so today marks the third day that I've owned my droid 2 global. It has loads of amazing features that blow me away. The only thing that gets me is that it seems to have an awful battery life.

    Like, I charged it and left for work at around 10AM, kept it in my pocket for most all of the day, rarely texting and making a single one minute call and by the time I was home drom work at around 8:30 that night it was at less than 10% charge. Then yesterday I charged it to full at 7PM and it was dead by 1AM. Does it really die that fast? Is there anything that I can do to extend its battery life?

    Task killer is a no no. Android has a native task killer that works just fine. My advice is to exit all tasks with the back button and nit the home button unless you intend on returning to it quickly. Turn off GPS and Bluetooth if you aren't using them. Turn down the screen brightness. If you have serious batt problems it may be a bad battery and you should take it in to vzw to see if they can replace it.

    I was helping another guy today with his battery life. He had his email set to check every 15 minutes and wasn't sure how often his weather was updating. Some live wall papers use more battery than others too, then there are the social networking updates, etc. Battery life is user dependent.

    Not only the task killer statement, saying the bloatware is a battery hog is incorrect as well.

    Yes, the battery life is that short. Get an extra battery on Amazon for 8.00 and an extra charger for $5.00 on eBay that plugs into the wall. Life with your Droid shouldn't revolve around finding out what to shut down to save the battery.

    I agree. I charge mine all the time, in the car, over night, at the office, while sitting on the couch. I can have mine set to update as often as I like, set the screen as bright as I want, use it all day for web, music, movies, etc.
