    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.

    I dont really have any issue with the batt life per se, but would really like to know how much I have left. I sure hope it gets resolved.

    I would be curious to see what happens if the batt is charged externally. The DINC had the same issue and had to be bump charged as a result.

    49% after 16.5 hours on a stock battery. And I've been using it pretty heavily all day. tons of email, text, spent about 3 hours playing with ringtones.

    Also, I forgot to re-tweak my sync settings so, FB, Twitter, Exchange, Gmail, they're all stock dancedroid

    DISCLAIMER: rooted, heavily modded and on wifi for 40-50% of the time. Running my own ROM with a bunch of tweaks compiled from many other devs, including over-clocked, LV kernel.

    EDIT: forgot to say what I came here to say in the first place! Was going to get the extended battery this weekend but wanted to see how much I could get out of the stock battery, now I'm not sure if I should even bother. When I'm at work I get 4g but not at home, haven't notice too much of a battery hit in 4g, but it does use more. Getting 4g at home in another month or so, so it may be worthwhile to get an extended battery, still not sure tho.
