    I got the update this morning. Had the Droid since Sunday. It's 3pm and the battery is showing with only the tip of the battery gone. I can't believe it. I've been making calls and using the internet all day. I also d/l Advanced Task Killer free. I think that is a very important app. Wow, looks like I'll get more than a day on a charge. It seems to be getting better everyday. :icon_ banana:

    yeah I agree, i think the battery life with this update is lasting a good bit longer. I had it off at 640 this morning and normally it would be down to 80% by noon but it didn't hit that till around 2. I'm liking this! :)

    i got my droid on sunday and of course i was playing with it non stop the first few days and successfully killed the battery in a matter of a few hours. today though(with the new update, 2.0.1) it didn't get much use. i sent one text and received one text, and listened to internet radio for about a half hour or so. the rest of the day it just sat idle in my pocket with 3-4/4 bars of 3G service. at 7:30pm it was still at 90%. like i said it didn't get much use, but i was still surprised to see it at 90% after about 11 hours. so at idle, with good service the battery will last quite a while.

    I am getting the opposite affect after the update. The battery seems to drain quicker for some reason. Is there something I am missing? I have wifi and bluetooth off, display is low. I don't get it?? Any ideas??

    22hrs since last unplug i'm still at 50%. The 2.0.1 update for battery makes it last crazy long. I'm texting, phone calls, using data on and off, but still amazed.

    I have seen HUGE improvement on the battery life. I love it. The only thing I haven't tested out yet is if the battery drains when the Droid if powered off. Has anyone tested that one out yet? Droid gets better and better. And so far it's been one update, can you imagine after 2, 3, 4, 5 updates what this phone would eventually do? The skies the limit.........:icon_ banana:

    My battery life is much better too. I usually leave the screen on full brightness and always run WiFi, but keep bluetooth and gps off if I'm not using them.

    To the OP, there is no need to run a task killer app, Android deals with unused apps on it's own. At least keep this in mind... if the Droid ever starts behaving odd it may due to using a task killer that may kill services that are needed. A lot of people who used to swear by a task killer on a BB have found it is not needed on Android. I haven't used one yet.

    Typically after normal use and 11 hours I am at 20 - 30%. Now, since the update I am at 60-70% after 12 hours. Looks like a big improvement.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one but I have wifi and gps off and my battery is absolute crap, might be a deal breaker for me keeping the phone.

    Battery was in the yellow today by 4:00, terrible.

    Hilarious!

    As for my battery, I take the phone off the charger at around 6:30am every day and with my normal usage the phone is dead by 2pm.

    Today, woke up to the update. Took the phone off the charger at around 6:45am and it's now 8:26pm and I am still at 75%. And I actually left my wifi on all day on accident.
