    Multi-faceted question about what I am doing wrong with battery life

    So I KNOW this subject has been beaten to death...battery life...however, I have some things I am doing and I don't know if I have too much going on and I need to remove some apps or if my battery is messed.

    *I got the extended battery on Tuesday
    *rooted my DX with z4root, installed titanium backup and froze a bunch of worthless apps.
    *downloaded Juice Defender Ultimate and changed my CPU to min 300, max idle 300 and max 800
    *Juice defender also has all data disabled.
    *Juice defender icon says x1.69 (don't know what that means)
    *my 3G is disabled by Quick settings almost ALL the time and I don't have Wifi accesss
    *I have my screen set to timeout at 15 secs and using the lowest amount of light possible
    *GPS turned off
    *Social networking turned off
    *email and weather apps turned off
    *No antivirus or task killers
    *I have Android Assistant downloaded but it seems to be running all the time (and it does have a task killer and a pie chart telling me my CPU at all time...actually scratch it, Uninstalling as we speak)
    *Under settings, I have my Data Manager background data, data roaming and data enabled all turned off
    *I have my CDMA turned to Home settings (rather than Automatic) and CDMA auto prl (in that special code you dial and get the secret menu)
    *Airplane mode at night while I am sleeping
    *once my battery is charged to 100% I plan on Going to data>system>and delete batterystats.bin

    SOOO....based on that information, the battery was last fully charged Wednesday morning at 5:30 am. and went all day on Wednesday down to 50% battery at bedtime and when I woke up this morning, it was 30% with airplane mode on! As I type it is 20%. So all day today it went from 30%-20% but that is texting maybe 5 times and talking one time for 5 mins. The phone has been idle most of the day. In my mind, I still don't know where all my power is going. It seems like with such minimal usage, the battery should stay charged longer considering I have everything turned off all day. I am not even using the phone the way it should be used and I have the extended battery.

    Can someone tell me what program I should remove, what's sucking my battery life, what I am doing wrong? The extended battery has only been charged one time since I bought it and I am thinking maybe it needs some training. I am going to let it die completely tonight then charge it (should it stay off or turn back on during charging?). I am just worried that I need a bigger battery or that I have something running in the background that I don't know about.

    I just want to know what else I can do, if anything to conserve more battery, esp. if I decide to actually start using the phone to do what the phone is meant to do!

    Advice please!!

    Dude, over 24 hours....your battery is fine. Seriously, how long do you expect it to last.

    I've said it before, but I really don't understand people not charging their phone at night.

    I was trying to discharge it completely a few times so I could 1. delete the battery stats and 2. so I could "train" the battery like everyone said I should do.

    yeah, but for an extended battery with all that disabled seems too short. I have the stock battery and I usually get 36 hours, and that's with actually using it.

    as far as returning it, I'm not fully aware of their return policy on accessories, but if you bought it from them it shouldn't be a problem.

    I honestly don't believe you can get 36 actual hours with the stock battery and actually use the phone.

    I have the extended and with moderate usage can get 20-24 hours.

    what could i possibly have to gain by lying about how long my battery lasts? i never said it was heavy use, i use it mainly to text and browse, but not for extended periods of time. i don't listen to music on it, so that's the battery life i get.

    based on what the op has said, the phone is essentially a paperweight and the battery dies in 24 hours. that doesn't seem normal to me.
