    I have the first release still, and my battery life is like 12-15 hours. At the end of the day, my battery life is 33% display, 22% android system 15% cell standby and then a few apps..

    any ideas?

    GPS is off and wifi is off all day

    I would kill for 12-15 hours. Sadly sending 300+ texts a day drains. :/

    I don't know how much you use your phone, but I'd kill for numbers like that! :icon_eek:

    I get 12-18 he's depending on use. This is with wifi on and connected all day and light use. Display is 33%-70% of use typically followed by cell standby. I thought it was horrible......

    Just to add to what I said earlier, and you all thinking 12 hours+ is horrible, I get about 5-7 hours with moderate use; but like I said, moderate use for me includes hundreds of texts. :(

    Get Juice Defender from the market. It finally works on the Droid and it really extends the battery life.

    under light to normal usage. i watched the phillies games for about 1.5 hours with screen on the entire time and refresh set to 15 seconds. I also used navigation for about 10 minutes.

    I use chevy's ultra low voltage and set to 250mhz - 1ghz

    wow, id love for 35 hours haha.. The problem is, I am a very heavy user. By the time my battery dies, around 12-14 hours, the screen has been on for around 2 hours, I've made about 30 minutes of calls, and sent about 300 text messages.

    CM6 rc2 running Chevy's Medvolt 1g clocked at 250-800, GPS on, wifi off. take it off the charger at 0500, send probably 50 - 100 texts, maybe 2 hours on the interwebz at 1830 it is at 70%. I cant complain... :)

    I use the med volt kernel as it seems to be better as far as heat goes. with the lv or ulv my temps wet uber high.

    I'm lucky to even make it to 11 hourse since I've rooted, but it might be partially because I'm out of school so I have more time to freely mess around with it. Its really hard to tell. All I know is at my college orientation the other day I got like 16 hours but that's cuz I was using the phone very lightly. ;(

    considering a 2nd battery? so you have to open the case everyday? i assume you use one. by the way, do you use a screen protector? (totally unrelated to the subject, I know. :) )
