    I hear a lot of people on here, me included, carrying on about the crappy batter life.

    So it came as a surprise to me when I happened to look at the tag on the charging cord today and read that max battery life is 4hrs for a stock battery and Five for and extended life.

    Is this all we can expect? No wonder my Incredible lives it's life plugged in.

    Try Juice Defender in the app store. The free one is all you need but its made a noticable difference in my battery life. There is a setting where you can disable data/updates while the screen is hibernating but it will also allow data to be on for 2 min every 30 min so you can get updates. It saves a lot of life. I'm getting an extra few hours on my daily use.

    Does juice def. really help? It seemed to make things worst, I had to plug in before the end of work. The night before without it I had 40% after 10 hours. Last week I got 10 hours down to 15% but I was out of cell range all the time. GPS, BT for my ear piece and I still got email and software update miles out of range. Not freaking bad.

    Love the signature Johnny.
    My 2150 battery gets about 9+ hours of up time+ standby time.
    Wish it would charge in ONLY 5 hours. Thought my Omnia was slow taking 4 hours but this one is 7+ hours to charge, then top off
