    Good post. I usually get about 4-6 hours for heavy use and 8-12 hours for moderate use.

    Mine was in the car charger all day an didn't kill the Honda battery...

    This thing cracks me up. I love the phone but years from now, we will be laughing at the old days when phones ate battery's...

    Sounds about right, I am at 11 hours again right now and the low battery warning just popped up for my 15% warning.

    Haven't had any problems with the battery life except when after using the mobile hotspot app then the battery dies really fast becauste of the increased cpu and battery temperature.

    4-6 hours here. 4G is a killer for us in 4G areas.

    I have never gotten less then 12 hours, 99% of the time I make it through the whole day from 7AM to 11PM with anywhere from 20-50% remaining.

    I'm rooted running one of the custom ROM's (forget which right now), 3G only.

    As of now I've been on battery power for a little over 16 hours with 48% battery left.

    I can get a full work day in on my stock battery right now. I would say that a full work day for me consists of about 5hrs or talking, an maybe 1 hr of misc data usage over the course of 8 hrs. If i can find a 1700 something stock htc battery, i may get it an start using it just to give me that much more cushion on battery at the end of the day. I have ran it dead at work a few times so im right on my limit.

    Wow I guess it's time to root.
    Do you lose anything when you root?

    Battery life got better with every cycle, and now that I'm rooted / running a custom rom with setcpu, battery life is pretty awesome...

    Screen shot is w/ 30% remaining.

    For the record, I have 4G disabled and spend most time on WiFi.

    With my phone as my main business email account I get well over 12 hours of use. I have 4 email accounts, calendar, and at least 2 solid hours of internet use with google maps included. that doesn't count my sporadic corporate con access.

    Non-rooted and have only had this phone since Tuesday. Right now, I've been unplugged for 6 hours and am showing only a 13% drain on the battery. Battery Left is saying it's averaging 20 and a half hours per charge, but that number has been increasing by the day. I am not in a 4G area, but right now, this thing seems to have a better battery life than my original Droid.

    Heck, yesterday, I had my phone unplugged for about 16 hours and was still showing a 30% charge when I plugged it in overnight.

    I was the same way with my original droid. My thunderbolt is getting almost double the battery life from, what I would call, moderate corporate use.
