    at first i thought i was going nuts. i turn my droid off at 9pm (power off) with 60% battery life. the next morning at 7am, the battery is at 20%. this has happened for 3 days in a row. anyone else experience this?

    They're watching J00!!!!!

    Haven't turned my phone off... no.. but try and reboot it before you turn it off to get an accurate battery display...

    Dr0id battery sucks IMO... and the recharge time sucks even more...

    i use "spare parts app" which tells me percentage of battery life. how do you reboot the phone without turning it off and then powering back up?

    charge time

    using the usb to computer really takes a long time to charge,

    plug your charger into the wall outlet and it charges fast, like 30 to 45 minutes.

    hard to believe the computer wont charge it... it did on all my other phones..

    usb 2.0 provides 500 mA of current while the wall charger provides 850. Almost twice as much.

    To the original post: Make sure anciallary radios/etc are off, gps, wifi, bluetooth, these may be draining battery

    My Droid uses almost no battery level overnight while in Standby. My BB 8330 used to drop like a brick, so I usually left it in the charging dock overnight so I would have a full charge the next morning.

    The first day I had horrible battery life, I let the battery run down all the way then charged it from a wall outlet overnight. Since then I've had pretty good battery life.

    Am I the only one that throws his phone on the charger every night?

    Droid does so much more than other phones, including several smart phones, I never expected the battery to last more than 1 day on a charge. Because I charge it every night, i have zero problems with battery life.

    I'm not somebody that uses the phone constantly like somebody who may use it for business, but I use it about 100x more than I used my blackberry.

    I have the same problem dude! I charged it up last night, made sure GPS etc were turned off, and when I woke up today it was at like 10%. Extremely annoying and I have no idea why it's happening.

    Seriously, there is a reason they sell extra chargers and car chargers and what not. Except for a handful of times when I was stuck somewhere overnight unexpectedly I have never not charged my phone overnight, particularly a smart phone.
