heres my droid ive had for a few months now, not too happy with the battery life in general, but with enough tweaks and such i got 2 days and 5 hours off a single charge.

im running android 2.1, nexbeast 1.0, helix launcher, 600 mhz

as you can see i had 1h 47min of screen time, and 49 min of talk time.

i did some web browsing, texting, emailing, and even some google maps.

also this is with the stock verizon battery!

waait does that mean that for over 2 days, you had the screen on for less than 2 hours? :blink:

I don't don't really check specifically, but I get a day and a half at least running 1250 kernel on performance, FroYo, and the screen on medium brightness for a lot of the time. Oh, and install JuiceDefender. It helps a ton with the battery.

Did you know you can also make phone calls with your Droid? I only say that because you didn't mention voice calls when you were saying how you were using the droid. I had a full charge at 6:00 pm tonight and by 9:00 from heavy web usage and using c:geo I was almost dead battery.

hmmmm the guess the picture that says "voice calls" isnt very self explanatory......

a good habit is to check your status light to see if you have notifications, instead of turning the screen on every time!
