    I've only had my D2G for four days, but so far I am extremely surprised (disappointed) with the battery life. I welcome any and all suggestions on how to improve it. I just installed BatteryFu, and it looks like it will help - if anyone has suggestions on how to best tweak that app, I'd love to hear them. I need all email and SMS to come through, and I also need my SIP client active at all times during working hours. Thanks.

    I definitely would invest in rooting and romming. Get rid of all the background apps that run without your permission by freezing them with titanium backup (requires root). My battery life increased tenfold from all of the above and using all dark themes with only text or highlights being white.

    Thanks for the reply. I should have mentioned that I DID root my phone.

    Juice defender is a joke. It uses more battery than it saves, even the paid version.

    Even though its an opinion, its based on facts of what I reasearched on my own phone, I found my battery was better off without it.

    So far I've seen minimal savings with BatteryFu, but at least it's something. If there are tweaks for that app, I'm all ears.

    I'd also like some more info on romming. The pros and cons, links to some step by step guides, etc. Thanks.

    Either you're a genius for porting android to your iphone; your signature is a joke; or your signature is true and it makes me lol.

    I wont pretend to hate apple because I don't, the os is really pretty. But id like to know your story if you're willing to share :)

    Copied my post from the other battery thread this what I do. And none of this hinders my experience with the phone or bothers me


    I get about 28 hours of moderate use until i get to 20 percent
    i am NOT rooted running stock with motoblur
    I have a standard battery NOT extended
    I have my brightness at 35 percent
    All animations off
    Gps, bluetooth, autosync and background sync off
    I use wifi when it is available because it saves battery over 3G but i only turn it on when it is available
    I use the task manager that came with the phone it is made by motorola so it only helps your phone it wont harm it or drain your battery(it only comes with the D2G and the droid pro)
    When i think of what else i do i will edit this post

    Right now im on 49 hours at 30 percent will charge soon(light use)!!!!
