    Battery Life

    Hey everyone, I absolutely love my Droid 3...except for the battery life. I have to charge it up by the middle of the day with moderate use. I just rooted and deleted/froze the bloatware, hoping that would help...but alas, no help. Does anyone know of battery tweaks I can perform? I have heard of some users getting a couple of days on 1 charge...is that you? Can you help???

    I had the same problem even with an extended battery. I'd get 8-12hours of use. Then I applied that "leaked" OTA update and it lasts two days easy. There was a log of bugs with the stock Droid 3 that a lot of people had. So either get the leaked updated, or the real one will likely do the same. However, no idea when that comes out.

    I don't have the leaked update or anything but I have "tasker" which I use to make a widget to turn 3G off, and with it off I can get easily 2-3 days of battery with calls and txt and whatnot, I also used TB to freeze all the bloatware, but I doubt that is helping too much.

    quick settings? I've never heard of it, I'm assuming its an app in the market? I only mention tasker because it can do pretty much anything and thats the kind of control I wanted over my phone, even before root.

    Check your settings in your phone, theres a few options u can turn off or on to conserve battery life. I have the extended battery and i took my phone off charge 3 am and ill still have plenty of battery to spare when i get home from work at about 6pm. Data saver, brightness etc. Theres plenty of resources out there. All you have to do is search it =) if u have a problem. Most likely someone else in the world has the same issue and has tried searching for an answer.

    I easily get a full day from mine, no extended battery/bells/whistles. I always plug it in at night.
    I was using hotspot for around 3 hours and noticed a 40% reduction, but on a normal day with about an hour of slacker streaming music, calls, emails, and vids I can go a whole day without a low battery message.

    I see that over the course of 2 weeks, my battery life has improved. I got the entire day out of it out of a full charge. (NOTE: I was on USB tethering for 2 hours, and there was no increase in battery life during this period.)

    The following details how my Droid 3 was used during the day.

    1. On 3G, tethered laptop via USB tethered for 2+ hours uploading and downloading email and attachments. I use "Tiny Battery Widget" that shows % remaining by 1 % increments. I did not gain or lose % remaining during the tethering period.

    2. On 3G, spent about 1/2 hour accessing corporate emails and calendar using Touchdown

    3. On wifi, web surfed, Gmail, other email, downloaded 3 books (OverDrive Media center) updates, 3 new apps, game emulators and game roms. About an hour.

    4. Spent 2 hours reading eBooks

    5. On wifi, spent 3.5 hours watching Monday Night Football (NFL app)

    6. Made or received 8 phone calls - 20 minutes (oh this is what a phone is suppose to be used for)

    7. Basically idle the remainder of the day

    I will give the Droid 3 a good test in a couple of weeks when I fly cross-country.

    I am not disappointed in the battery life. And fortunately, I can usually charge it somewhere, auto, airport, home, laptop, etc.

    You can find solar charges for cell phone (these work on Droid 3) on Amazon and other sites.
