Battery is driving everyone nuts. I did the battery bump thing 2 days ago and it really didn't help much. I'm willing to bet that most people having trouble with battery are coming from a older model Droid, and when they activated their phones all the apps they have used before auto downloaded.WOW you cought me my life goal is to make everyone have crappy battery life LOL get real dude...well you are the only person following me into threads and talking about my post's and you want me to believe your getting 6 extra hours LMAO maybe after u unplug your phone try taking it with you and use it!! ppl with the tbolt arnt getting that from a full charge but ur getting 6 extra hours.. . when i bumped charge and monitored my usage i would get about 40 extra min to 1 hour MAX............ hear is the link its the same article u guys keep quoting maybe you should read it all next time. Your Battery Gauge Is Lying To You: Everything You Need To Know About Bump Charging And Inconsistent Battery Drain | Android News, Reviews, Apps, Games, Phones, Tablets, Tips, Mods, Videos, Tutorials - Android PoliceYou are the only person I have heard (on multiple threads) state minimal gains and battery damage. This has been a pretty common technique on multiple Android phones from the d1 to the evo. I understand that it may not be the best thing ever for the battery but has anyone actually reported real damage? Also, in terms of "minimal gains"...I would say many folks, including myself have seen more than minimal gains. I personally have gained over 6 extra hours on my battery since bump charging. I did it all the time with my d1 and never experienced any negative effects. I've done it once with my tbolt about 4 days ago and have seen greatly improved battery life ever since. Basically I'm just looking for real documentation stating negative effects on the battery since you are the only person I have seen preaching it like its your job...

So What Does It All Mean?
If you absolutely need the highest capacity on a device like this, you will need to bump charge. There are currently people experimenting with "fixes" for this, but I have yet to see one that works. Be warned, however, that repeated bump charging will wear your battery faster and begin to reduce its capacity. If you are a "power user" who will buy a new battery a few months from now anyway, this presumably isnít a concern. If you are an average consumer who uses a device for a few years, I would recommend that you stay away from bump charging.
