    I just got the droid eris, and the battery life only last for about 8 hours. Is there any battery updates, extended battery replacements, or something I can do to help this issue?

    You could buy an extra battery? I have this same problem with my Droid....

    I read somewhere that dirty contact points can cause the battery life to be less than promising...meaning the metal part of the battery that actually connects to the metal part of the phone in the back...

    What I read, said to clean these contact points with either an eraser, or a cotton swab with alcohol....but just make sure that when your done, there are no residue of eraser or cotton left on the contact points

    There has got to be about 5,000 post on what to do about battery life in this forum. Turn off bluetooth, make sure you're not using gps. 8 hours is about the average life span now on my Droid with the current apps I have running. I have to give it a booster charge usually once a day now.

    charlesellis27.... seidio.com sells a 1750 and a 3500 replacement battery for the eris..the eris oem battery is 1300...i bought the 1750 and along with all the other things i have learned to help with battery life on all the different forums have really helped with my battery life on my eris...heres a code for free shipping and 10% off any purchase over $50.00 on seidio.until feb 14...the 1750 is $49.99 so it will only help you on the 3500 battery unless you add something else to the 1750 battery (maybe the screen saver)... hope this helps !!! heres the code..LOVE2010
