8 hours with 4 hrs display 3G only 5% left.

I thought this was strange. I plugged in my phone, thinking I would give an intial full charge before turning it on. When I did that it started at 40% out of the box. I then realized I forgot to plug in the LTE card. I unplugged it, pulled the battery, put in the card, reinstalled the battery and plugged it back in. I expected it to be at 40%. It was now at 5%. Very strange, I wonder which one was correct out of the box, 5% or 40%? Pretty big difference.
Bluetooth battery usage is unbelievable. I have not had it connected to a bluetooth device at any point in the day. Currently at 24% battery according to the circle battery widget. Very disappointing to see bluetooth kill so much battery without even being used. Screen on time is 1 hr 25 min.

Just got my Bionic yesterday. Ran it through 2 cycles on the stock battery, 1 time heavy use, 2nd time moderate use. Lasted only 5 hours each time. I'm on the 1st cycle of the extended battery with moderate use and i'm at 8.5 hours with 20% left. I'm hoping it improves with time, i'll let you know. It is slightly clunkier with the extended battery but definitely worth the extra life.
