    Droid 3 battery issues

    Hello to everyone. I have been a Droid user for the past 2 years, and I just upgraded to the Droid 3. I love the phone, but the battery life sucks. I have a second battery but can only charge it in the phone, so I have to keep changing batteries to make sure they are both charged. I have spent hours online trying to find an extra battery charger, but I guess the Droid 3 is too new. I have always had an extra battery charger for all of my smartphones, so that a battery is always charged. Does anyone have any suggestions. I have found battery power packs, but I'm not sure how they work. The ones I have been looking at are the New Trent ifuel IMP500 5000mAh External Battery pack and Charger, the Motorola Power Pod Universal External Battery, or the iGo Charge Anywhere External Battery Charger. Does anyone know anything about any of these items, or does anyone have any other suggestions.

    I purchased an external and internal battery charger from www.WirelessGround.com and everything I've ever purchased from them has worked well but this for some reason is not working. The last phone I had, he also offered the 2 battery charger and that one worked just fine. Perhaps this one is just defective and needs to be exchanged. But here it is:
    Monaco HTC Spare Battery Charger
    His Video (tab) shows you the compatible batteries but you can see at the bottom of the device the USB port to also plug in your phone, to charge both at the same time.

    I purchased an external charger from cellular factory. There is an older thread about external chargers. The cherger that I got will charge both the external battery and the phone at the same time.

    Just got home and checked my invoice. The charger came from cellularfactory and is Momax Battery Charger, item number 49536-5 which fits Motorola Batteries BF5X. Will also charge the extended battery for the D3. Can also charge the phone at the same time as charging an extra battery.

    Hope this helps.

    I love the D3 battery life. I am using the extended battery but the stock one seemed very good too. I wonder if you are running antivirus (uninstall it), security software (uninstall it), automatic task killer (uninstall it), or if you've set up the built in task manager to autokill apps (don't. remove all of your autokill settings).

    There are many many many other ways to improve battery life. Two big things to try:
    - set phone to CDMA only (not GSM/Global)
    - make sure WIFI sleep policy is set to turn off WIFI when screen turns off (wifi settings > menu > advanced > sleep policy)
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!

    Droid 3 battery issues

    I purchased the same extra battery charger you are referring to...in fact I purchased two, and neither worked. I finally purchased an extended battery and cover. I also purchased the Motorola Power Pod Universal External Battery. It's small enough to carry in my purse and when plugged into my phone will give me 5 additional hours of power. I had the Motorola USB extra battery charger for use with my older Motorola Droid and it worked great, but the new Droid 3 battery is longer and thinner. Hopefully someone will invent a Motorola USB extra battery charger that will work with the new Droid 3 batteries.

    Droid 3 battery issues

    I cannot find the Momax Battery Charger, item number 49536-5 at the Cellular Factory. I could not find any Momax Battery Chargers at all. Are you sure that's where you got it?
