    Does anyone know how long the Motorola Droid's battery will last if you're just watching videos. I'll be on a long plane ride soon, so this will be useful to know :).

    My battery goes down to 60% on the two hour bus ride I have every day, and those are all downloaded. So I would bet you could make it for about 6 hours or so :). Out of curiosity, how long is your flight?

    you're really going to watch 10 straight hours of video? i would imagine you'd get tired of looking at the screen. It should last you long enough to go through at least 2 movies though.

    i put the movie Up on mine, which looks better on my phone than it does on my hd tv, and my 2yr old has watched it start to finish with the brightness all the way up, and it only used about 5% of my batt and that was at the end of the day while we were at dinner and the ride home

    No, I wouldn't want to watch something the whole plane ride.

    Thanks for the comments. The battery seems to last longer than I expected.
