    Great battery life on thunderbolt

    I have noticed a big improvement in my batt life over the last couple days. The one thing i have done is let it die down to 5%or less then charge it to full.

    This is my thunderbolt talking...

    I have also been getting amazing battery life. Have been unplugged for 38 hours now and its just at 8% remaning. I'm not rooted, keep my screen at about 30%, running juice defender beta, apps set to sync manually and I'm in strong 4g coverage. About 2/3 of this is on wifi. This is stock battery.

    Nice, not too many phone calls/txt messages? Looks like mostly standby either way good to hear. One reason I was skeptical was I owned a DInc and the batt life was just bad for me.

    Yeah mostly standby. Messing with widgets/setup, news apps, facebook, twitter and some web surfing. Light to medium use but the battery is definitely capable of lasting through a day and then some.

    I bought the Sendo 1600 battery and installed it Friday evening. After charging all night, I was sad to see it out of power by 6:00 pm. Today was a different story. At 11:00 this evening it was at 63%. I suppose it takes a few charges to fully crank up the battery. This is an amazing piece of work!

    Wow a whole day, even though your network and connections are turned off thats pretty good. I'm going to try that juice defender.

    I refuse to neuter this speed demon.
    I tried Juice Defender beta, it didn't help and sucked more battery than it helped with.

    I turn WiFi on at home. I turn off Bluetooth when not in the car (a real PITA, I left it on 24/7 on my blackberry) but I use this as my work phone with push email from 8 to 6.

    I'm going to assume the first software update will address the battery.

    I like to open an app and know it's updated and ready, I don't want to have to dig deeper and refresh things manually.

    My stock battery has been getting better and better over the last week.
    I have the fat battery on standby if needed.

    I use Phone Info to keep my phone on 3g except for when I need 4g (Youtube, downloads, etc.) and I get great battery life. On normal day I have a handful of phonecalls/texts, check my email multiple times, check the weather, Facebook, news, etc. and maybe play a little Angry Birds, Tetris or similar. I've had my Thunderbolt for 2 weeks and it still hasn't died on me in the middle of the day yet. I am in a strong 4g area but I haven't tried using it with the 4g on all day which seems to be the real batter killer. However I have had the 4g on for 2 or 3 hours at a time and haven't seen the huge battery drain that others have reported. Maybe there was an issue with some Thunderbolts being shipped with bad batteries?
