I purchased my Razr at Costco and it came with a Motorola portable battery charger (it's the item with the teal plug):
I have only needed it a couple times because I typically get 8-10 hours of battery life, and even more if I remember to turn off 4G when I don't need it. However, the battery charger seems to provide an additional 50-60% battery charge when needed. I really think all the battery talk is blown out of proportion. None of the 4G devices have outstanding battery life, so everyone should just be prepared to plug the device in when possible, and have an alternate power source (battery or charger) for long days without access to a normal charger.

The teal one is the older version, P793, with 1420 mAh. The current one is P893 with 1800 mAh capacity in the same exact size (but gray cord instead of teal). Verizon has the same exact name for them (Motorola Universal Power Pack), but the old one model number ends on PWR1, the new one, on PWR2. If you're ordering one, make sure it's the new one.
It's a solid phone. I can a full day on it with moderate usage. 4G is alot better than it used to be after the ota update that was released 3 days ago. So overall its a solid phone compared to the bionic.

if i get this phone i would most likely get some kind of extra battery charger, how much is that P893 Motorola power pack anyway? it doesn't say on the site.
on a side note the ICS update....i know this is a stupid question because no one really knows when its coming. but I'm hear about bionic getting maybe two more updates before it gets ICS do we know anything about the Razr and if it will just go right to ICS (if so.. that most likely means it will come sooner, right?)
In all honesty...they are so similar if you aren't having any problems, why get rid of your bionic?
It its the docks or form factor, I can see. I'm sure the bionic will run ics fine. They really are so similar they both should run ics the same.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
I had the Bionic (1 week) and traded for the Razr. I didn't have great battery life with the Bionic, about the same with the Razr (w/4G use). Pretty much I only use 4G for large files, like Podcast downloads, Netflix, Youtube, NFL video, ect. But for my normal daily use (90% of time), like Facebook, Twitter, Droid Forums, Web Browsing, Pandora, GPS, I use 3G, which is more than enough speed. And for home use I use WIFI which does well, like I've always used with all my Droids.
I'm getting about as much battery as my Droid X, if not more, with my Razr.
That, plus the slightly fast processor, awesome design (thinness/weight), super AMOLED screen, quicker ICS update, upgrading to a Razr is a no-brainer.
I have the bionic and i'm wondering what makes you say the Razr will run ICS better. I don't know a ton about the differences, but everything I've read tells me they are almost exactly the same internally except the Razr is slightly overclocked. Will that make that big of a difference?
