    2 at work because I'm in one of 2 places and I'm too lazy to get one if its not where I'm at. 2 car chargers just because I got one for free and I got 1 in my living room and one in my bedroom for the same reasons for when I'm at work. But at work I'm on forums, Facebook, twitter, games, lunch I watch an hour or so on hbo go. I'm constantly charging. After 3 hours off charger in the morning I'm down to 60% or so. Very heavy use, my phone is in my hand all the time. It passes the time

    People just have to come to the realisation that we are carrying mini pc's in our pockets, try un-plugging your laptop and see how long it would run on its battery.
    Myself, I have a charger in my car, at work and a couple in my house, and one on my night stand next to my bed, as my Incredible wakes me up every morning:)

    +1 this is true. People dont realize that these arent really phones anymore they are little computers that can make phone calls. I don't want a bigger processor, more ram, or a bigger screen. What I want the most is new battery technology. This is a very exciting time for nanotube battery technology and i cannot wait until they're made available for cellys. They hold like 100 times more power than the ones we have and they're tiny. THAT is the "next big thing" that would change the game entirely and send us skyrocketing into a new generation of powerphones and technology in general all over the world

    All the rebuttals against the battery complaints are so true for the most part. Still, we do all have to admit there are a few (ahem...) lemons that come off the assembly line in such a monstrous production. of micro-technology and ingenuity.

    I am not saying I agree with the complaints for the most part, and I am sure you've seen my posts expressing frustration at them, but (in defense of a few) if someone buys one of these things, takes it out of the box, puts it on the charger immediately and leaves it there overnight (as they should have, but probably didn't), and then follows the instructions to activate it, and then simply uses it for a couple days without making a whole bunch of customizations to settings, installations of apps, adding of widgets, changing of backgrounds, setting up email accounts with polling at frequent times, etc., etc. (which they likely didn't as well), and the phone, in its pristine condition and unadulterated does strange things like going from 60% to dead in the blink of an eye after several days of getting accustomed to it or some of the other horror stories I've read, they may very well have a defective unit.

    Truth is though, most of us on here are just like me - tech junkies, and couldn't wait to power the damn thing up and press the pedal to the metal the moment I could wrangle it out of the wrapper. I have had this thing for less than a week and already I've gone through better than 300 apps with it (of the 3,000 plus I've tried over the past almost 2 years), there's 142 on it now, I have 22 running in the background now, including LauncherPro, Animated Weather, a live wallpaper, and several email apps, Tikl touch to talk, Viber, AppMonster, and TextFree to name a few, and it's at 90% battery level (battery icon still shows full Green) after being sitting detached from the charger for over 3 hours, 30 minutes. In that time, Android OS used 43%, WI-FI used 21%, Display used 12%, Phone idle used 8%, Cell standby used 7%, and everything else used 3% or less.

    I consider that more than acceptable. Also, it keeps getting better. So I suppose we all need to take a look at what we are doing with these things that may be affecting the battery consumption (ya think?), especially before we get on here and start telling everyone how badly these things suck. Like someone else in this thread earlier said (apology for not remembering who), I'm glad I didn't listen to all the complaints and went ahead with the purchase. If nothing else, I have only myself to blame if it happens to perform either to, more or less than my expectations.
