    I've seen behavior like this in fringe coverage areas but so far mine stays between 29 and 34C most of the time. I don't baby it at all (turning off sync etc) and it still uses very little power unless the screen is on.

    Sometimes an app like google maps will persistently run and eat up your battery. Check to make sure that you don't have any rogue apps stealing your battery.

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    I find my HTC Rezound only uses up its standard battery a little bit faster than my older Motorola Droid X.

    I can easily get 10-14 hours out of mine with relatively light usage. I only turn on WiFi when I'm at home or at work (always turn it off on the road!), and I always leave 4g off since it isn't at my house and it isn't very good at my office yet. I also turn off mobile data when on wireless. I find a little bit of work on keeping the lowest power usage antennas on goes a long way.

    With 4g on my phone wasn't happy after 5 or 6 hours (probably mainly cause of the poor reception, it's trying really hard to connect and stay connected).

    OTOH, I did load the leaked RC of ICS, so YMMV. It does seem to run a bit better on ICS than Gingerbread. Runs about the same smoothness-wise but definitely better on the battery.

    ALSO, the screen is one beast of a screen. I can turn on the screen and sometimes literally watch the battery drain just sitting there! Make sure you let it auto adjust the brightness, or keep it somewhat low. High brightness, if I'm not mistaken, can/does cause extra drain on the batter. Just a thought

    Update on my testing.....
    Tried sleep mode last night and was able to save a lot of the battery....about 20-30% loss of battery within 10 hours of sleep mode so avg of 2-3%per hour which is not bad...
    I do have 4G on at all times and I'm in a strong 4G hood lol...checked my task manager for the vampire app and its mostly screen time for majority of battery use....I initially had it on manual low light setting now ill try the auto....I did notice once I set it on auto that the capacitive buttons don't light on as much....

    I'd say I'm milking at least 8-9 hours out of it with light use and the fact that it didn't die overnight was a big plus. Oh also with background data turned off it made a big enough difference.

    Oh, my extended battery just came in and boy thats a big goiter lol. I'll be testing that after my stock battery.

    Do you really need 4g on all the time? do you do a lot of video/downloading/etc? if not, and you are also in a solid 3g zone, you might consider turning the 4g off for the most part except when you need it. probably save a lot of battery right there. Somewhat of a nuissance but if you can get a few more hours out of it, it might be worth it to you.

    Maybe give up Yahoo for something like K-9 or enhanced email . They both have 100% better control than stock mail and/or Yahoo mail. Or even better, forward your Yahoo mail to your Gmail.
