    Because I've been paying attention to black man x's tweets, when asked how the battery life on the tb would be, he clearly stated that on 3g it will be a big improvement, but on 4g, anything will drain it fast(btw that will play out to all phones)

    Btw, a battery saving app I've downloaded which will certainly improve the tbs battery life is Juice Defender, I suggest that anyone with battery life that doesn't last a full day on medial use needs this app:) take advantage of its fetures:)

    Odd, I've ran it on my d2g almost since I got the phone and noticed the horrid battery life and its never slowed my phone down (even before I started oc'ing).

    Juicy defense0r helped a bit, and it does not drain any battery according to systempanel. 16s of cpu time for 23 hrs of uptime.

    The main thing about JD is it will turn off power to the 3G apn (versus actually shutting down the phones radio) which in practice has given me ~30% more life when the screen is off. You will still get texts and calls without 3G compared to airplane mode shutting it all down.

    Edit: also the flexibility of scheduling and the advanced controls are nice :) i def payed for ultimate juice, dev is an o.k. guy

    The TB Snapdragon processor is made using a new "2nd gen."manufacturing process (45nm feature sizes). The earlier Evo 4G (also an identical 1GHz chip) is 1st gen and a 65nm process. Comparing equivalent Snapdragons in that entire line up of chips between the 45/65 Qualcomm stated that change provides a 30% lower dynamic power consumption and a much lower standby power as well. The battery capacity reduction from Evo 4G to Thunderbolt is only about 7%. This guarantees overall longer times between charge with the TB (of course under identical use). Adding an aftermarket higher capacity battery will probably still be highly desirable.

    The big CPU guys know that battery life, talk time and charging are a big deal. They are aggressively making new lower power consumption products.

    The CPU is only one aspect of battery life. Think also of the big 4.3" screen and the 3G and 4G radios.

    Yes but most of the other variables (at least between the TB and Evo 4G) should be constant.

    But this discussion of battery life is not only in comparison with the Evo 4G, which is notorious for its poor battery life. Note also that the Bolt has 50% more RAM than the Evo 4G, which will also drain more power from the Bolt's smaller battery.

    black_man_x has said via twitter that the battery issues, etc is old info, and firmwares have been put in to rectify the issues, as much as possible, battery life should be in the same class as the Evo.

    You made a very good point with that one! Thank you, and i apologize to anyone for sounding angry. Caps lock is cruise control for cool, as they say 8D

    It's worthwhile to note that HTC is ready to sell a 2750 mAh battery for the TB...for 70 bucks.

    Curious, since I personally don't know, how good is the Evo battery?

    Would it have killed HTC to put a respectable battery (at least 1700 mah) in a 4G LTE phone with a 4.3" screen? I don't think so. It's just ridiculous how little they seem to value battery life. Even Moto-freaking-rola stepped up their game and put a 1950 in the Bionic.

    HTC probably delivers the best skinned Android experience with Sense but on the hardware side of things, it's disappointing how they constantly put poor batteries in their phones.

    I've got a Naztech 1800 maH LiPo USB charger and a Zaggsparq 2.0 for on-the-go T'Bolt charging. Plus, my job allows me to keep my phone plugged in most days when I'm not actually using it. It would be nice to have a phone that worked all week on a five-minute charge but I'll take my chances on drop day and hope HTC works out the battery life issues.

    Seido has a 1600 mAh slim battery that will fit with the original battery door.

    yeah, but what is 200 mAh going to get you? 5 minutes more?
