    Non-rooted thunderbolt. Thats it. What is killing this battery? I have the verizon extended battery also.
    That sounds like normal TB battery usage. That's just how the phone is.
    Normal for the stock phone, yes. Not normal for a stock phone with the Verizon sanctioned extended battery.

    I know there is a bigger drain on the battery with 4G than 3G, but I can easily go at least a day and a half with a full charge with the Extended battery with medium use, even in 3G data. With WiFi, the thing could likely go 3-4 days.

    One thing to consider... How long has the screen been on during this time? Yes, it will be the biggest drain, and thats a given due to its size. Looks to me like it could have been on for the majority of the time.

    Right now I'm sitting at the following:

    14hrs 30min since unplugged - Battery Level 49%
    Voice Calls - 46% (1h 29m 41s)
    Display - 39% (2h 40m 58s) most of it on 26%, a large portion on 50%
    Cell Standby - 4%
    Android System - 4%
    Phone Idle - 3%
    Wi-Fi - 2%
    Android OS - 2%

    Ahh yea.. didnt notice he had the extended battery. That definitely isnt normal.

    What Ive noticed is the battery stats page kinda sucks. I dont think it takes into account everything that's eating the battery. The OP should probably check his partial wake usage. Something's probably keeping the phone on when the screen is off.

    I think my battery problem is that I am loosing signal. My phone has been unpluged for 1h 34m and I am already down to 88%. I checked the cell standby and it says that for that hour and a half I am without signal for 45% of the time.

    Yes your cell standby looks high.

    Look under that and tell us what the signal loss % is. At work here I suffer 60-85% loss normally and it slaughters my battery, but outside I get great battery and no loss.

    Right now it is kind of wonky. I had to plug it into my computer via usb so it is plugged in. 59 minutes and 6% loss. As stated above it was 45% after an hour and a half.

    How do I check the partial wake usage?

    Dial *#*#4636#*#*

    Go to battery history and there are some options there to see cpu usage, network usage, etc. Pick partial wake usage. See if there's an app in there that's got a lot of partial wake usage (like 30 mins or more)..

    Checked it and there is nothing that is jumping out of the ordinary. I think I am loosing battery because my phone is searching for the 4Glte signal. I turned it off and am using only 3g. The battery seems to be holding up better. I don't know if the MR2 update will help with the signal lock or not. Does that make sense that searching for the signal would kill the battery
