    Good morning all

    I'm on the 3rd full charge for this battery and it hasn't lived up to the hype.

    Am I doing something wrong???

    After the battery completely drains I leave the phone off and let it charge once it's full I go into clockworkmod and wipe battery stats.

    It lasts maybe 7 hours with still 2 1/2 hours screen on time. Am I doing something wrong??? Does the phone have to be off while charging??

    Thanks

    Is it a battery problem, or just a calibration problem? Is the battery ACTUALLY draining (i.e. drains all the way down and the phone shuts down), or is it just REPORTING that it has drained?

    The reason I ask, is that I put an extended battery on my Bionic. The battery meter (and I've tried several different ones) will report full battery drain (down to 1%) in about 12 to 14 hours (just like the OG battery), but the phone will then continue to operate for a full 24 hours more (with the battery reporting 1% remaining the entire time). My Bionic is not rooted, and I have not been able to recalibrate the battery stats (I've been using it for several weeks now) - but the battery itself is working just fine!

    Thanks for your response. It's definitely draining down and shutting off..

    From what I've heard, the OEM 2100 extended battery is better than those 3800 ones...sadly they seem like a waste of money and kinda make the phone look and feel odd

    not sure what thats based on. My seido 3800 with NFC gives me a full day and a half with heavy use. Can get very close to 2 days with wifi, lte off and not much use. Very similar results to my wifes Maxx with its 3000+ battery. Also heard really good stuff about the new Hyperion 3800 battery with NFC for the gnex.

    So i guess the question for bsmith is, what is your setup? Rooted? Rom'd? Im running Axiom patient zero rom with Franco kernel nightly 139. If youre running stock, i can def see you getting much less than this.

    p.s. i also have the oem extended2100 and its no where near as long as the 3800

    U got a 3800 battery which is a very smart move. I got a seidio 38. And if u get this app u will b a happy camper. Go to play store and download 2x battery life. This app will give u more life. A lot more. Just download this app and done.

    GSAM battery monitor is going to be your friend. Use it to figure out what is draining your battery the most, then figure out ways to lessen it if possible.
    Is it the screen? Perhaps turn the brightness down.
    Is it an app? Perhaps that app has an issue, or it is using battery unnecessarily.
    Is it the radios?
    Perhaps it is ROM or kernel related problem.
    ..... etc

    There is also the possibility that your extended battery isn't good. Do you get similar results with the stock battery?
