    So I left the office for lunch with a 70% charge.. checked my email and did some browsing as usual... then the battery dropped to 5% and i got an alert.

    Thinking it was something weird, I powered the phone off and tried to turn it back on. Nothing..

    I get back to the office and plug it into the charger.. green charging light turns on... for 20 min.. still won't turn on.

    I take the battery out, pop it back in, plug in the charger.. Now I don't even get a green light.

    I do believe mine is toast!

    Ok my bad.. apparently mine doesn't like being charged by USB.. I had to bum an iphone USB power brick from someone in the office and when I plugged it in, it showed the battery at 0% display.

    how odd.

    Both the X and the Droid don't like being charged from dead by USB.

    Is it me or is the battery life horrible on the X??? I do not have GPS or wifi enabled and it did not last very long... Perhaps, I have been playing with it more than I thought... Moto Driods seems to have lasted longer. I have ATK on it.

    It has to be all the bloatware thats causing issues and draining battery life.

    Many, like myself, are skeptical about Task Managers. Some experience worse battery with it enabled. Just leave it up to the OS, it handles on going tasks killing just fine. Another thing is that Moto has added some stuff that will help manage battery, try looking into that.
