    Droid 2 battery life sucks. What can I do?

    I have Droid 2 Global from Verizon. Besides the email not syncing issue, the battery life is driving me crazy. Mine won't last for a day. I tried two different batteries and got the same thing. Right now, it's 2 hours after I take it off its charger, I only have 70% left.

    My screen display brightness is at the lowest.
    My GPS, WIFI, anything you can image is turn off

    I only use to check emails and do some occasional web browsing.

    What else can I do?

    Yep, it sucks on all Droids.

    All you can do really is purchase a back up battery on Amazon for about 8.00, then see if you can find a wall charger on ebay for about 5.00. Battery complaints have more threads on it then any other subject in this Forum. Maybe purchase a cradle to set it in so it will charge at your desk when not using it. Since it has a lithium battery you don't have to let it run out to charge, you can charge it anytime.

    You can try changing this setting, changing that setting. It will only frustrate you more and limit your enjoyment of your Droid.

    That's my recommendation.

    Hook has some good advice there. The extra battery with charger and a cradle is a good idea and you will have more time to enjoy the droid this way. There are even spare battery chargers on amazon for about $10 and spare batteries for about $4-$10. Just charge the spare one then pop it in when the stock one dies. I hope this can help you

    Does it really suck on all Droids? I went from a 1 to a 2, and I have never had battery problems, even while overclocking. That's weird...

    So far, the best solution is NOT use it. Compared to my Verizon Blackberry, whose battery life sucks too, Droid 2 is at the rock bottom!

    Turn off background data sync from settings get advanced task killer but only kill youtube and browser and games don't kill all the other stuff that always runs once your screen is on there is no point they just keep comming back just put them on your ignore list
