    I got my 2750 with the phone and it does last longer...duh. Try this and let me know what happens. Pull it put it back and let the phone reboot. Let me know if the batt% drops significantly after you put it back in. I have been testing this and it's bugging me pretty badly right now.

    Was getting great life out of it today and then pulled the batt. Before the pull it was at about 45% after I put it back in and rebooted it was at 21%. Now...either the boot sequence killed over 20% of the battery or the OS is not properly reporting the life.

    That's exactly what I'm going to do. Set up profiles with set CPU and I'll be good. I may get the 1600mah battery soon as well from AndroidSpin. I also heard of a possible 1800 coming soon. Same size not extended battery covers.

    Nate. Get the batt down to about 50% or so and pull it. Put it back in and tell me what happens. Mine drops almost 20% after the reboot. I don't think the phone is reporting the correct % remaining.

    i got 12hrs yesterday.. stock battery.. Not rooted.. in 4g all day..

    playing mp3s all day long.. some phones calls here and there.. moderate usage.. at the 12hr mark, i was basically trying to kill it.. just playing games..

    the battery drama is definately overblown... this is a typical smartphone with a normal battery, imo..

    I have to agree....regular flip phone with may 2 5 min. calls a day..charged that about every 3 days...just a phone, no text, no mail, plain LG 5300...this, 19 hours, that's calls surfing net some, using the forum app, Golf game, loading apps...the 2750 battery will be here today so will be nice to see if can go 2 days w/o a charge.

    I noticed significant drops after restarting as well. I think, the Thunderbolt is reporting correctly. I think there is a glitch in the software that is causing the Thunderbolt to drain the battery during the glitch when the phone freezes up during a boot up.

    I think I set to fast Boot once, seemed to have better battery power, but something trigger I had to turn off, I forget though, but booted up fast and used less resources.
