    I know this topic has been talked about a lot. But I also would like to learn more. I have search topics on forums and did Google searches, but it seems like there is not a set answer. Seems like when a person's battery last long, it just a lucky thing.

    I get generally get from 8 to 10 hours on my battery. By that I mean, I get down to about 20% or 15%, at which point I recharge my phone. When everyone lists their hours, do they mean they go all the way to zero and the phone just shuts off?

    I guess I am curious on two things. When people report how long their battery lasts, at what % do they charge? And for people that get good times on their batteries, did you train your battery, change specific settings, got some apps to help you conserve battery, or just use your phone less? Thanks!

    We probably have a thousand battery threads in the forum. Literally. And if you searched through at least some of them you would find that 10-14 hours is probably about right.

    And it's not just Droid. I had a Blackberry Storm 1 and 2 and they both sucked down the battery. What you should do is get an extra charger, car charger, docking station, whatever suits your needs so you can recharge your battery during the day. 3-4 days life is rare and quite honestly a little unbelievable. I would say you would get that if you just didn't use your phone at all. Maybe.

    The 2-3 days comes from every thread related to batteries. There's always people posting how they get 2-3 days.

    Using Airplane mode makes no sense to me as I think it means you cannot use your phone to receive calls ???

    hookbill, do you have those search comments on auto-text ? It would be a pretty dull forum if no one ever posted new threads and just searched. There's always new thoughts, tools and opinions and cases that are specific. For example I am glad to see you say that you find 3-4 days as "unbelievable" because that's how I feel and I've not read that before.

    30+ hours in low usage (during the workday the device pretty much sleeps the whole time), but I could probably get 18-20 for moderate use. Right now I put the device into charging roughly every 24 hours.

    Pdroid, when you plug in your phone to charge, what is your battery level at? Also, 18 hours is pretty good compared to me. Can you let us know if/what you did so your battery lasts as long as it does?

    I used my droid today very moderately. When I woke up the battery life was at 90% and then an hour later after doing virtually nothing it dropped to 80% (which is reasonable considering my phone was idiling when i was sleeping) Then i used my browser for a total of about 5 minutes and youtube for about another 5 and when i checked my battery again it was a dismal 50%!!! It seems impossible that my battery could have dropped 30% in 10 minutes of using the internet. And i had full 3g service too. I just got a replacement droid because the same thing happened with my old one and the verizon store said it seems like my battery was dead on arrival but the same stuff is happening on my new phone as it did on my old one. Can anyone help me with my battery life issues? Please.... this is hands down the best phone i ever had in my life with all the stuff to do on it. The only complaint i have is the battery life. So these people that get over 8 hours of batery life out of their phone in a day, i envy you. i do half the stuff that you do and my battery drops extremely fast. Like i said 30% in 10 minutes of using the internet and youtube. Please help!!!

    Running CyanogenMod, I use setcpu to underclock the device during sleep, use auto memory manager, turned off some battery/temp reporting...I was trying to train battery left so the 30 hours is really fully charged to dead.

    Ok, though I've never felt my battery life was anything good compared to some, I also am not as bad as some who has posted.

    However, after seeing your post, I'm thinking I got it good, no matter what the life span is

    I am running Cyanogen with P3 1.0lv kernel. I have juice defender, task killer (which i use frequently), setcpu with battery saving profiles, and I get 24-48 hours depending on use. There have also been days where I get 8-10 hours, but those days I am flashing ROMs like crazy because I'm bored

    Another thing that I do and haven't seen anyone else post... I have 2 batteries and cycle them. So my batteries almost always get fully drained (as in Droid powers itself off) and get a full uninterrupted charge every time. Whenever the battery goes dead I have the spare nearby. Seems to be working well...
