    Resistance was futile in my quest for a Droid

    I became the owner of a Droid X today and while I am very pleased, I am also a bit overwhelmed by it. Its battery finally powered down to 5%, so I turned it off and am giving it a break (full charge).

    Quick tip charge your phone to 100% then let it run all the way down until it powers off then charge it all the way back up this will help calibrate the battery and should result in better battery life. :-D worked for me

    Another Dx owner--welcome to the Droid Forums!

    This was a quest where you really have no option but to just crumble and give in, so congrats on your lack of willpower!

    As Tlm said, your battery cycles should be much better the next few, don't sweat it!

    Thanks everyone!
    Given that I just brought the phone home from the store I was surprise that it even had that much juice to it.
    I have always been a stickler for doing just what you have suggested: letting it drain completely, charging it to its full capacity and repeat the procedure. I also do that with the device turned off.
    Still I was thinking of buying an extended life battery from Verizon. Worth the $50?

    Just wait on that. I was convinced I would need one when I signed up--have yet to buy ~four months in. Granted I'm on a D2 not a Dx, but impressed with the battery life I do get out of the OEM battery.

    agree, wait on it. when I got mine I let it drained like u should then charge fully, like u should. took a few weeks but with readjusting ur settings and other things, im running a near 17 hours before charging it. that is checking emails, checking twitter, browsing, etc. light to moderate usage. knock on wood everything is good on my end
