    Try to drain battery all the way down again and recharge and see if it still does the same.

    Running the extended battery here. First day off to play with my new toy. Spent it reinstalling apps, setting up home screens, playing around with Zumocast, mostly on wifi or 3G, breakfast at an Eat n Park with no signal, so of course it was searching.

    15h 21mins I was at 50%, I'd say I'm happy!

    ya Cell Standby is always the top user for some reason. Even my first day of HEAVY use, with 4.5 hours of display/ screen on, Cell Standby was the most usage. It wasn't that way with my DX.

    any suggestions, anyone?

    First real battery test for standard battery.

    Took it off the charger yesterday afternoon around 5:35 PM and it is at 5% today at 7:45 AM. Roughly about 14 hours and ten minutes from full charge to 5%. Display was on for 2 hours and 13 minutes, mostly due to netflix viewing. Like most of you cell standby percentage is quite high and I don't know why.

    For comparison, my DX would have about 30-35% on battery in the same situation. LTE is definitely using up a lot more juice than 3G. With that said, I had zero issues with 4G/LTE while at work last night at the hospital. Had a few coworkers with iPhones wishing they had signal like I did, probably AT&T iPhones :p

    Charged overnight Thursday, left off charger Friday. With light usage (browsing, email, about 1 hour of phone calls), and then some games and benchmarks in the evening, I got 14:50 before the battery completely drained.

    Did this test with wifi disabled and 4g enabled.

    Took mine off the charger at 5:30 am and it completely shut down around 4:40 pm and this is with setting it up, a few phone calls,text,browsing, experiencing Android coming from a Blackberry. I would of considered my usage moderate...almost 12 hours is very good for this LTE super service, with the standard battery as well.

    When I picked up the Bionic for my son yesterday, the store was out of the extended battery. I guess the half price deal is too good for people to pass up. They had to order it for me and it will be shipped to my house.

    I picked up my Bionic on launch day. Yesterday with moderate usage it made it from about 8:00AM until around 1:00PM, at which point it was in the yellow. I'm rather disappointed.

    I think you would get much better battery life if you turned off 4G signal when you can't get it
