    My incredible has worked fine for the past 6 months. However in the past 3 days its been loosing battery life rapidly once it goes below half battery. I looked to see whats eating the battery and its pretty much 30% Cell standby/Wi-Fi/Phone idle each. It lasted 12 hrs from last charge with hardly any use. One phone call was placed. 2 mins tops. At 6pm I looked at it and it was slightly over half full. two hours later it was in the yellow, no use.

    I'm guessing from other threads I've read, the likely source is the battery. Only because I'm not an App junkie and have not put any new apps on and didn't haven't have a problem till recently.

    Any help would be great!

    Thanks for reading!

    Sounds like your battery is about dead. I replaced the stock HTC battery with the Seidio 3500 mAh battery and it still has about 55-65% power after 16 hours.

    Replacing the stock battery to an extended battery model if you can deal with the extra bulk will greatly extend the time between charges.

    Keep in mind your phone uses battery statistics to determine charge state so it may need a few charging cycles to most accurately gauge battery charge state.
