    I've been unimpressed with my Droid maxx battery life after having owned the phone for about 10 days. Did all the battery conditioning suggestions and i'm now at 30% after just short of 6 hours on battery. Basic surfing, words with friends and a couple of you tube videos. Display set to auto diming, smart action battery saver on, auto kill task set in the preloaded task manager, strong 4g signal, etc and running nothing but stock Android. Very disappointing battery performance.

    Gotta be a rogue app or something using a lot of CPU cycles. I'm still getting 30+ hours on my maxx, sometimes 48hrs. (to about 15-20% batt)

    My typical use is several phone calls a day, gmail push, weather checks every 3 hours, a few dozen taxts, some web surfing, accessing medscape and skyscape seveal times a day and playing solitaire when I'm bored. For the most part, I keep wifi off and don't mess with 4g.

    Started today out at 8am and listened to my music via motocast with my BT headphones while mowing my lawn for about 2 hours. Made seveal phone calls and texts today, played solitaire and updated 8 apps via 4g. Ita almost 12 hours later now and I just hit 70%.

    Battery status shows Android OS using 21%, display 18%, media server 11%, pandora9%, phone idle and standby both at 8% , Klondike Solitaire at 5% com.motorola music and motocast are 4% and bluetooth is 2%. Looks like my battery graph is fairly linear.

    Overall, I've been very happy with my battery life.

    I have not put this phone down. Constantly surfing and texting and downloading apps etc. Phone calls you name it.

    I'm getting about 15-17 hrs out of the thing. That's DAMN GOOD!! The galaxy nexus I had wouldn't even last 5-6 hours. Lol.

    Biggest battery drain is motocast/zumocast from what I can see.

    My display battery usage says 50% for 3 hours 21 minutes. Is this normal?

    Turn it off and try it.

    And are you using the charger that came with the phone???

    Kill some apps. That ics live wall paper for one. Go into settings, applications, manage applications, running applications, and force stop some of your running apps.

    Either of these should help you.

    I think I need to swap mine out too. The to of my screen gets really hot when using it for awhile. That is on battery, not on the charger. And charging takes forever. Appears I got a lemon.

    Charging takes a while on the maxx. It's a pretty big battery. And the screen does get warm. I have the app "phone overheat " installed just for this reason. But there are several app that monitor battery levels and temp. Just search the play market.

    If your down to 10-15% battery and you put it on charger and keep using the phone (especially on 4G) then the phone will not charge.

    Turn the phone off completely and connect charger you will then see the moto dual core red boot up sign and then a picture of a battery with a % inside of it. Let the phone sit overnight like this and then see. If it does not charge at all then return device for new one.

    Just as another poster said: Get rid of the live wallpapers as well.

    The only other thing i would try is bump charging (I wouldn't do it all the time, but occasionally it shouldn't hurt), that is if you can get it to charge all the way up. I did that after day three and usually get between 13-14 hours on 4g heavy use and over 20 when on Wifi on the weekends.

    If you can use Wifi, do it on this phone it is a huge battery saver.

    https://community.verizonwireless.com/thread/672997 I used the second method.
