    All due respect there are a lot of threads on here about battery life but my suggestion would be to download juicedefender in the app store. Lots of options to save battery and a readout that tells you how much you are saving

    First and foremost, you need to download Advanced Task Killer. Secondly, you want to turn your LCD brightness down.

    The battery will never last 2-3 days, unless you don't use it. You can also purchase the extended battery from Verizon. I'm a medium to heavy user, and I'm getting about 14-16 hours out of the extended battery.

    The last thing you want to do is install Advance Task Killer or any task killer for that matter, Android has a very effective task managment process built into the system and any third party app is just going to add confusion to your system, eating up battery and slowing performance

    Ultimate juice (juice defender) is a great app to install for improved battery performance.

    Common Misconception:
    Leaving your GPS on drains battery.
    Truth is: GPS is only used when you open an application that requires it. You can leave GPS toggled on at all times.
