    I have two suggestions:

    1. Turn off the display while in work and listening to Pandora.

    2. Stop killing tasks. That just takes more resources to restart them.

    I am just coming off of a Blackberry storm and I used to use Pandora on it a lot. I never had a battery drain issue using it. As a matter of fact, I am finding the battery life on the storm to be much better than the droid. Maybe a few more firmware updates will fix this.

    I could easily get 2 full days on the storm with heavy use. I am lucky to get a full day with the droid. The storm originally had a battery issue but was fixed with firware updates.

    If you wanna get 2 days of heavy use on a Droid, you will need an extended battery.

    Yep, stop killing tasks, but more importantly make sure you completely exit pandora when you are done. Otherwise it will run in the background.

    Yea I came from the Storm too. And I could run Pandora/Slacker all night

    I usually got 1 1/2 days out of my battery. But it's no problem, gonna be buying a 2nd battery for emergencies, but like I said, I wish I would'nt have to worry about this.

    A little update.

    I haven't been using Pandora, but when I do anything but text, my battery life is terrible

    Today I took my phone off the charger at 10:30 am, listened to music for maybe an hour or so. Browsed the internet for a bit, and texted.

    My phone was dead by 4:30pm.

    I hardly do anything, and it dies. I'm afraid to play games on my phone.


    But I just ordered another standard battery off amazon, thinking I should've splurged for the extended battery

    This is weird. Back when i had my Motorola Droid i could go a full day of texting, calls, apps, radio and other things and still have a lot of battery left. Something you are doing is draining your battery like crazy.

    Yea idk what it is.

    I have:

    1) Launcherpro
    2) Handcent
    3) Facebook/Twitter/Gaming widget
    4) Beautiful Widget
    5) random apps on my homescreens.

    Nothing is constantly running.

    Wifi off
    GPS off
    Brightness at 25%

    I keep Dolphin HD in the background but that's about it.

    It boggles my mind that my battery dies in 6 hours with hardly any use.

    Try setting your widgets to a longer refresh rate.
