    In this article, it explains how you can view your battery usage:

    Complete Guide to Maximizing Your Android Phone’s Battery Life - How-To Geek

    It says you can go to Settings > About Phone > Battery Use

    and this will tel you exactly what applications use what percent of your battery. On my Droid 2, I can not find any such battery use option.

    Do I need to install some sort of app to view it?

    Those directions are for the droid one. The poster above gave you the correct path.

    I take it you just got your phone very recently.

    The best thing for a new user to do is go to through all of the apps, settings and menus to see exactly what options you have available.

    You don't have to change anything, just take a look around.

    Don't forget to try long pressing on stuff, and hitting the soft menu button.

    Mobile Networks

    Best battery saver for my Droid 2 Global was switching the mobile networks from "Global" to "CDMA". Major saver.

    I have that EXACT menu and location on my D2

    I have my D2 overclocked to 1.305GHz and still have 80% after almost 5 hours of being off charger.

    I think I get pretty good battery life. You can see by the clock in the upper right of the screen that these shots were taken within 10 minutes of each other. Would have been right on top of each other but I had some issues with my wife calling over and over and over and over.
