    I recently talked to a Motorola associate on their live chat service and was complaining about the bad battery life I've been having. After a tedious process of correcting the motorola employee, he agreed to send me a replacement battery for my droid 3.
    I just received it yesterday and immediately charged it through the night. After my first day of use I've seen drastically improved battery life. I may be jumping the gun but compared to the battery that came with the phone this is highly improved.

    15h 50m 6s at 30%
    Cell Standby 46% (time without signal, 0)
    Phone Idle 42%
    Display 4%
    Voice Calls 4%
    Android OS 3%
    Android System 2%

    This is with light usage and it is the first day but the battery that came with the phone would die within 8 hours of just sitting in my pocket. I'm waiting until this battery dies all the way and charging it completely and will post my day two findings tomorrow. However this is greatly improved compared to the battery that came with the phone. I just wanted to share my findings with the community.

    My battery is the stock one and I'm at:
    14 hrs 31 mins and have 60%
    With moderate use...
    It takes a few full charge/drains to get proper battery stats, but works great after.
