    How come my battery drains from 100% to 0% in under 3 hours? My GPS is and has been disabled, wifi has been disabled, screen brightness is always at it's lowest, i have no more than 15 applications, brand new droid x battery that i took out of its package yesterday. and I've used 3 different chargers made for the droid.

    What is wrong???????

    How are you exiting apps? Back button or home button? What does your phone say is using the battery?

    I always click the back button to get out of apps, and my battery manager goes down the list as follows:

    display 38%
    cell standby 18%
    phone idle 11%
    android system 10%
    android os 5%
    media server 5%
    facebook 3%
    media 2%
    adw launcher 2%
    swype 2%
    text messaging 2%

    That looks about normal. Are you near a corporate store? You have a warranty and they can run a battery test on it for you.

    did that, i also called verizon and keep offering me a replacement phone. Why would I do that when both the phone is a fresh replacement because my last one did the same thing? also with a brand new battery i think that getting a replacement would be kind of worthless.

    That's a known issue with the D1. If you go and plug into a charger it will reset to the correct charge level. Usually it only happens once though, it doesn't happen repeatedly.

    My brand new X is killing the battery at a phenominal rate. In three hrs and only a few texts sent it's down to 40%.

    I even shut off updates while here at work and its showing 86% of the battery usage being done by the OS. And everything else is below 5%.

    Are you guys using live wall papers. That will kill a battery. My wove and I have been lucky. She uses hers on wifi and checks email and texts wile she plays wow at the and of the day not dead. My phone lasts all day with normal phone,text and email. On the weekends they will last almost two days. Not muching on lol. I use advance task killer froyo set to kill apps when screen goes dark.

    The preloaded junk doesn't do anything but sit there. Even loaded into memory it does not effect your battery. On the other hand the system constantly reloading the junk that you are constantly removing does use battery.

    Get rid of your task killer for a few days and see how things look. Most of us don't use one and get pretty good battery life.

    I don't have an app killer. Yesterday I didn't stop any of it and then today I created a shortcut to manage apps and manually stopped them to see if it made a difference. No difference.

    Tonight with a few texts and a few posts here I had to recharge after five hrs. And now five hrs after the last recharge was complete I am at 20%. Though I did do a bit more later this evening its still dying way faster than other people I know that have an X and most with alot more apps running all the time. I will be visiting Verizon tomorrow and see what they have to say.
