    I have had my new Droid since Saturday 11/28. I have been reading everything I can and setting my options to the best possible while still being useful for saving the battery. I unplugged @ 6:32 am today and have my Bluetooth running, have made 36m worth of voice calls. Had my email being checked every 15m on a single account. Received 3 text messages and sent 2. No web browsing and no game playing. Goggle Talk, Android Keyboard, Corp. Calendar (which I have killed) and bluetooth updating service is all that is running per the app manager in the settings tab. GPS and WiFi are turned off. Screen brightness is at just under 25%. My battery is now @ 40%. Battery usage states that 56% of what has killed my battery so far is the paltry 36m worth of voice calls (this was only 2 different calls by the way). Correct me if I am wrong, but shouldn't I be getting better results then this? Someone did mention that they were able to get a new battery under warranty...is this something I should consider? Thanks for any help ahead of time :)

    I experienced a bad day for the battery; after reading this forum this is what I did; I shut down auto sync, background downloads, (manually check my email accounts instead of having it automatic), turned off auto brightness and set it at 50% (really can't tell a big difference for brightness), turned on Wifi (this way when I walk into a hotspot saved or public one it uses wifi instead of 3G. I talked on it for over hour, used the internet off and on throughout the day, listen to mp3, use navigation and I have been running on a Charge for One Day and 14hours with the charge still in the Green. This configuration made a big difference apposed to the 4 hours total I had on my second day of owning it. But that might not entice some, because of the lack of background data and auto sync but for me I can listen to mp3, make calls, send sms's and browse the internet comfortably with out having to worry about the phone running out of juice.

    To the OP,

    I found this today, one is going to be fatter, but there is an extended slim battery that says it will fit under the stock door.

    There are no further details for it but it is in development.

    I don't believe this post was addressed yet, but Lithium Ion batteries do not have the 'memory' that older batteries do, so burning them all the way down doesn't do anything for you.

    From Wikipedia on NiCd batteries:
    And the Wikipedia article on Li-ion batteries stating that there is no 'memory effect':
    So basically, charge it as much as you want as often as you want. Don't worry about draining it completely. Hope this helps on that issue!

    I browse the web / watch videos / listen to music and use the navigation a lot in addition to the regular functions ( not all at the same time ). So while I can usually make it through the day, there are times when I barely scrape by. I'd say the biggest drain for me is web browsing and the navigation. A bigger battery is certainly welcomed. My Droid might grow a butt however I can live with that. Though I will still wait to see the other options before jumping in.

    That can be accurate.. I leave my phone on the charger on the way to work.. get out and do a 12 hour shift.. at the end I usually have 60 - 70% left unless I do "lots" of playing on it with browsing, video, or camera usage.. playing with apps that use gps.. then It may drop to 40 - 50%

    I usually leave my wifi off and gps off at work as I don't use it there.

    I also use advanced task killer to keep rouge programs at bay... especially after a fresh reboot.

    Thats not fugly... thats the Droid shuttlecraft from Startrek... don't you remember?......:icon_ banana:

    Too bad.. the only other way I can think of to get an extended battery that looks better is to spread it out more and so be thinner, but then you risk getting in the way of the camera too.

    Its actually not that thick.. but it does change the looks.

    Look on the bright side.....
    Now you can spin your phone at dinner and drive everybody crazy! :)

    I'm hoping their slim battery (that is in development) that uses the stock battery cover has a decent increase in capacity... that one may be worth the wait.

    At best you will get 25% more capacity... they told me off the top of his head the ah was still to be determined but would either be 1500mah or 1750mah... Im thinking the latter.... that would be 25%.

    Would be a good alternative to nothing as long as you still got to use your same battery cover and there was no thickness added.
