    Are you using social networking apps, email, weather, etc?

    How often do you have them set to sync?

    Do you have wifi set to notify you of wireless networks?

    Are you running a task killer?

    Go to settings, data management, motorolla applications and set it to sync only when connected to wifi.

    Sign out of the facebook app and twitter app, then get the tweet deck app (its in beta, and not in the market, you have to get it from the tweet deck website) and use that for twitter and facebook.

    Doing both those things made a huge battery in my battery life. Im at 12 hours use and 50% battery (extended battery).

    Definitely get rid of the task killer. That will kill your battery as well.

    Get rid of the task killer, you can always add it back if you feel you need it.

    As to the syncing, go into the weather app, email, and any social networking apps and check to see how often you have them syncing.

    Do you see 1x at the top or 3g? If you see 1x most of the time that will kill your battery too.

    I keep reading about this 'task killer'--I don't think I have one--Is it 'stock' on the D2?? If so, where do I go to turn it off--if I have it??

    If you didn't download it, you don't have it, unless one of the knowledgeable techs at the Verizon store put it on for you.

    Display is always the biggest battery hog. Live wallpapers use more battery than static ones, but the ones that come on the droid 2 arent a big deal.

    True, but that aquarium one is a monster. It looks very nice, it's my favorite, but it eats battery like skittles.
