    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.
