    Ok, I have been up and running with no charger for 13h 41M on the extended battery on what I would call heavy use. I have 15% left - it's the first time it's gotten this low ever. 30 Min Voice Calls. At least 20 IM's Chat application running all day and being used. 4 hours 16M display on. Phone Idle 9H 24m Wifi on all day. Cell Standby all day time without signal 31%. I probably played about 3 1/2 hours of games that use graphics and internet. What do you think?

    What are you guys using that shows 1% increments and is accurate? I have yet to find one.

    Best I mustered with heavy and moderate usage would be 29 h and change. With data off I got over 2 days on it.

    I did 3 battery cycle drains. I can make through 10 hours of work with moderate use and still not have to charge until bed time :) I am very happy with extend battery and highly recommend it.

    With my typical usage I can make it through one day - last night when I finally got home around 10:00 I was at 3% - I unplugged at 6:30am

    Im at 10 hours with 15% left.... but I only had 3hrs of screen on time which is less then usual... as long as I make it through the work day is all I care for... hated bringing a charger everywhere.... plus I have the standard battery as a backup

    I'm sure it would have lasted longer if I wasn't playing games.

    @ jjbinks, how r you liking the unleashed rom? I've been thinking about throwing it on my bionic but I want to get more opinions on it first as to pros and cons.
