    I would imagine playing videos full screen would kill it rather quickly *shrugs*

    +1 haha i don't have an X so idk how true it is but it's funny haha anyways the best way i know is to turn everything on (wifi, bluetooth, gps, screen brightness all the way up) start downloading some huge file, and play angry birds. Works like a charm and your not bored because of angry birds :)

    Give it to your 8-year-old. If you don't have an 8-year-old... then I don't know.

    Play music, set it to repeat, turn the brightness all the way up, leave Dolphin open and set it to stay awake.

    I've noticed just talking on the phone is a real battery killer.
    So is using the DroidX as a flashlight (camera flash LEDs).
    And the phone vibration is also quite a battery killer.
    There are times I want to get the battery to discharge fully quickly before charging... not that Li Ion batteries regularly need to, but I hear it helps the battery meter calibration...

    Fully discharging a Li-ion battery will shorten it's life. Do not drain it before recharging.
