    Some people say cycling the battery will help you but if not I would suggest getting a second battery. Its way cheaper than buying an extended battery and you can keep it charged and stick it in your pocket or whatever for whenever you need it.

    Cycling the battery? You mean letting it run out completely before recharging? No, that is not going to help.

    Amazon, new battery for 8.00, at that price buy 2. Ebay, get a wall charger for 5.00. It eliminates all the stressot of worrying about the battery.

    I'm hesitant to coment on the cycling thing but a member of the rescue squad suggested it to me recently so I was just passing that on.

    Ultimate solution is a new battery though.

    I found droid 2 batteries cheap on amazon. But I am not finding any wall chargers where u but the battery into a dock and plug it in while u still use your droid.
