    when I first got the phone, I held back and waited to play with it until it was 100% charged, then beat the hell out of it with syncing, downloading, installing, navigation, full brightness, automatic brightness, and video until it died after probably only 7 hours. Charged it back up to 100% before unplugging it this morning and it's been going for 5 hours and only says 80%:

    Cell Standby: 41%
    Phone idle: 36%
    WiFi: 9%
    Display: 8% (35 minutes)
    Android OS: 4%
    Android system: 3%

    will update this post tonight once it's drained a bit more

    The battery / cell standyby has got to be an issue they will resolve as soon as they can, no way all of us are struggling to live without email notifications and the neccessary things we need to be alerted of with background data off, the whole point of a smartphone is to stay on top of all this! <long sigh> I have faith this will be resolved, until then I have a charger at work, home, car and at my boyfriends.

    THAT being said - dude, how did you get on the NOVA shuttle? I spun around and around and couldnt figure out what to do! :D

    Extended Batt Provides about 13 to 14 hours of Good Use (heavy on occasion) (used Batt Left to calculate)

    Mine: 13h 55m on battery - 50% battery left.

    Cell standby 37%
    Phone Idle 35%
    com.motorola.contacts.data 17%
    Display 3%

    My phone sat overnight while I slept - about 7 h. Since then, I have used it a moderate amount. About an hour of music/podcasts, some email, some internet searching.

    Interestingly, despite the high % cell standby and idle, my phone lost less battery overnight than my OG Droid would. Both have push email and are set to update weatherbug every 2 h. Since my battery life seems as good, but probably better, than my OG Droid, is it possible that the difference is in how the battery drain is being seen/reported on this phone.

    What peeves me, is that the 1930 mAH battery is imperceptibly larger... not the big giant hunk some extended batteries tend to be.

    And compared to the normal replacement battery, it's only $10 more...

    With battery life being the biggest complaint about smartphones... why isn't this battery the standard one that comes with the phone?

    So they can sell you the extended battery, of course.

    Ok so its lasted me all day still (see my post a few up)... now its been going for 14.5 hours and down to 20%... here are my stats:

    Cell standby: 39%
    Phone idle: 34%
    Display: 9% (2 hours)
    Voice calls: 7% (15 minutes)
    android OS: 4%
    Wifi: 3%
    Android system: 3%
    Bluetooth: 2%

    Not much browsing but im still pretty happy with that. If they fix the cell standby issue, it'll be great

    Nope stock standard battery. Got almost another hr of use after I posted this with nonstop use. So....14hrs with moderate-heavy use. I'll take it.

    Turn off the Global radio people

    8 hours and 46% left. Better than my Droid 1 and I keep push on for 2 email accounts. Make sure you turn OFF the global radio, it comes turned on. Go into settings and put it on CDMA only.

    So the D3 has battery percentages in 1% increments? Motorola finally did something about that?
