    Bionic Battery improvement

    What are the best ways I can improve my battery life with the standard and extended batteries?

    What is your battery life now?

    You can try Juice Defender, but you can also shut down 4G if you don't need it.Try changing your display settings to auto.

    Some free apps, like Angry Birds, consume more power over the paid version as the free version uses power to run the radios for the ads.

    +1 ^^^ on JuiceDefender. I use it and it's extended my battery life by 20% or so, but I'm on WiFi a lot.

    I may get 3 hrs of battery on my standard battery with nothing but emails, some text messaging and a few phone calls. I get around 5-6 hrs with the extended battery doing the same things. I may try the app you guys just suggested.

    Yes, WiFi helps a lot.

    I generally recharge at about 15 hours, but I still have power left.

    I forgot to ask, are you rooted? Are you on GB or one of the ICS leaks?

    Not rooted and still on stock .905 GB, afraid I would brick my phone somehow if I were to jump on .246

    Yes, I am rooted now, but JD doesn't require it to improve battery performance (in my experience). I am also running .246 ICS leak and had a bit less improvement on GB.

    I used Juice Defender on GB and it was pretty good. Battery life extended by 20% or so with the default configuration. It didn't seem to help much with ICS once you setup good rules with the Smart Actions.

    If you're near a computer throughout the day(such as at work) you can use a USB cable to charge your phone. You can get some from monoprice.com for less than $2 + shipping. I have like 10 and they all have been great.
    Expected ICS late Q3 or Q4(2012). I called it back in February 2012!

    Now Expecting JB late Q2 2013. I called it back in October 2012!

    Wow that IS bad. I was using Juice Defender but I think Smart Actions will do nicely. I went to 246 yesterday morning and by 10:00 pm I was still at 70%.

    I've been trying to calibrate my battery so I've done a couple of deep battery drains. On a standard battery with ICS .246, it takes me longer than 3 hours to drain the battery with the screen on all the time, Wi-Fi, bluetooth on, sync and 2 emails in background and continually running Quatrant.
    I regularly get 16 hours out of the standard battery but I don't "talk" on the phone a lot, I use it as a PDA, email getter and web browser.
