    So get a different phone, ends your frustration and pointless threads.

    It does suck. And it also sucks that I can't even buy an extended slim battery for this awesome phone like I did with the old piece of crap I had previously. I love my DROID, but I hate the fact that I can't have everything on and running that I want. Maybe one day the magic battery fairies that be will bring me my wish. Or maybe the magic FROYO will also decrease battery usage along with its increase in speed and other gifts. Till then I will suffer with my phone being awesome for a limited time and continue with the battery swaps and constant cradle charging.

    There is a 1750MAH that fits the OEM size.
    Although I'm on my second charge with it and it only lasted 13.5 hours and it's now at 9%
    Unfortunately that's with every battery tip I could find pretty light usage.

    Read some of the other threads and turn off stuff. I get 1.5 - 2 days on the oem battery and 2-2.5 days on the 1750 I picked up. Love the phone and learned a lot on this forum.

    With the 1750 battery my phone is rarely below 50% by bedtime.

    Its all dependent on usage.. one guy maybe texting, calling, surfing, listening to music all morning and be dead by 3pm..

    one guy may have a few texts and a few calls..

    battery left will depend on the end users usage....

    i have 1d2h+ on a single charge on the stock battery... and have 50% battery left.. stop playing with your phone..

    its all dependent on your usage, period.

    or ask for help, research on how to improve it, or I hear the iPhone 4G is out now.
