    Just curious if anyone knew of a app that would say how much time is left on the battery on the droid. Kinda like a laptop battery that says 4 hours remaining, something along that nature.

    Well... when the phone is fully charged, you can assume 4-6 hours and count down from there if you actually use the thing. :) I have been very unimpressed with the battery life of my Droid. I would like to see an extended life battery available.

    something must be up with your phone. I unplugged my droid from the charger at 5:30am and still had battery at 11pm.

    i'm extremely impressed with my battery life!

    If you have Locale installed it'll EAT your battery. After i uninstalled my battery has improved almost 50%

    When you have a phone that can run apps, your battery life is extremely dependent on what kind of apps your running.

    from my experience and from reading, you might need to leave you phone plugged in for a while....supposedly you should have left it plugged in for 24 hours when you first got it(i didn't)

    Just leaving my phone nearly empty of programs overnight(8 hours) it would drop from 100% to 70%. I charged it overnight for two nights in a row.....and now i can get 15 hours of use and still have 70% left(which included some small browsing and 30 min of GPS)

    I agree I use my phone pretty heavily and I still had 50% battery last night when I plugged mine in.

    Right now Locale is my second highest battery consuming app (at 12%) after the screen. I'll leave it running for a few more days to see how it works out. But I think I'm better off setting up stuff manually.

    GPS is on, so I guess that's what it is using. I wonder how often the app is checking my location. Whenever I look at my phone, the little GPS icon is showing in the status bar.

    yea, that will kill your battery, i think its standard for it to check location every 10 min.............. but depending on where you live, letting it triangulate your location based on cell towers might be good enough, that what i do.....it can even use wifi spot to help too, if you leave wifi on(i don't)

    Turned GPS off and set it to triangulate using cell towers. It was off by about 5 miles. Actually within the work parameter I have set up. I guess I can try it like that and only enable GPS when I use Navigate.

    I turned off my gps and i am just letting the phone use the data networks to find my locale saves a ton of battery. im on my droid for 12-15 hrs a day and batter life is excellent and i am running multi apps browsing the web and so on. as for battery life ind i installed an app called mini info it is pretty cool it shows batter life in percentage sd card memory usage and availabity as well as ram usage and availability.

    Well, just got back to work after lunch. Locale has me waaayyyy off, not even close. Too bad. That means I either use GPS or not use the app.

    battery left is a pretty cool app its also a widget! The app displays how much batt. life you have left.. base on this app (if it is accurate) it get 12hrs and 8mins but it is still not fully calibrated.
