    the battery on my Incredible is holding up really well. i disabled my weather from updating all the time and set my mail to update every 30 mins. i have lost only about 10% and i have had it off the charger for about 7 and a half hours. been playing with it a bit as well.

    Mine is pretty good as well. Took off charger at 8:30 am. Still have 46% left with steady use. Once I get my Seidio 1750 MAH battery life should be perfect!

    My battery life leaves a little to be desired, but Seidio has a 3500mah extended battery on the way. I'm sure that as soon as that comes out, I'll be quite happy.

    Sure, it will add some bulk, but I'm an extended battery guy. Every phone I've had for the past 5-6 years has had one.

    when you say bulk does that mean you have to get a different back for your phone?

    my battery life is good.

    i unplugged it at 10:45AM and now at 9:15PM it's at 54% with moderate usage. i played music for a little over an hour, played a flash video over 3G for about 20 minutes, surfed the web for about 5-10 minutes, sent and received a couple of texts, showed the phone to a few people at my job, and had a quick 2 minute phone call.

    i have gmail sync on, weather to sync every hour, Feedr and the news and weather app to update every 3 or 4 hours, facebook every 2 hours. i have the screen on auto brightness with a 30 second screen timeout. nothing really to battery conserving.

    Unplugged at 8:15AM. Plugged back in ay 8:30PM with 42% left. Moderate usage. That's fine with me, but definitely looking forward to the Seidio 1750.
