Any L-ion battery takes a number of discharge/full charge cycles to reach optimum performance. But after a week or so you should be getting more than 6 hrs of average use. Take it back.
BTW OP, a little overly dramatic thread title don't you think?If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Thirdly, many in the '1st world' are laying down their lives harder than anyone in the third world for the revolution.
BB and any other communication device is a catalyst for change, and a needed tool for most if not all people esp. in a 'modern' urban setting.
So no, this is just a 'problem'. It's about merit, f the who privlege vs who bs because all that is designed to do is to keep you from doing what's right.
For example, food for people that's right. Idc about the 'white man privelge' cuz 'his woman' .
Or other stuff.
This is your first world problem:
Armies are a lot smaller today, how are you and your kin going to deal with that?

Hey OP I've had mine since the Jan 30th.
*turn off "Allow gestures when locked" feature* I'm telling you. ;p
It will be found tapping the display section in settings.
Just do it. For me this is pretty bad bug. Should be welcome change.

CRITICAL charge using the plug that came with the Z10 and not a USB or other charging cable. Made all the difference for me.==========================================
- Avid fan of BB 9700 and 9850 - the 5mp camera addition made life so much easier (even though it was fairly crap!). Waited a long time for a Q10, including being 5 months past my 'upgrade' date from the carrier - lost my nerve and got the Z10 1st Feb 2013. Probably switching back to a 9900 while I wait for OS fixes/upgrades. Proud Londoner (that's in the UK, guys!)

Some people are saying "take it back, its a dud". Can just replace the battery instead of whole phone?
The phone works great, batterry not so great. I am trying all the above mentioned steps. I even had a good chat with Telus technical support today.
He pretty much said up what you guys have said.

the battery is awful!!! So bad that I have asked my phone rep to take the phone back and replace it with an iphone, the phone has died consistently by 1pm everyday from being on charge over night with not much usage. I really wanted to like the Z10 and the BB 10 platform but its a failure. I am so disappointed. I have had all my work collegues taking the mickey out of me for days regarding the issues I have over the phone. the emails would not work, the contacts did not transfer, only after I found someone suggest bluetooth did I get my contacts sorted. Its got some good features but it doesn't work properly.

I really wish someone would create a good power use analysis app for BlackBerry 10. These competing threads of "The battery is a disaster" vs "No it's not - you're a fool! I have great battery life" are disorienting.
There are clearly such a varying mix of experiences with battery on Z10 that a firmer diagnosis of what causes good/bad battery life on the thing is really needed.--------------------------------
Not sure what's worse - irrational fanboys who get hostile at any negative suggestion ... or the people who've moved onto another platform but feel the need to come back here because they get off on "educating idiots".

Battery life for me is better than my 9900 and about on par with my 9790. In other words, I can easily get a full working day's worth of use out of my Z10. Sorry I don't have time to read through all the posts as I'm already late for work but have you tried closing some of the active tiles? When I first got my phone I had all 8 running just because I could. I now only run 2 or 3 at any one time, that's really all I need and I noticed a big improvement in battery life, going up from about 10 hours to a full working day and beyond.

Welcome to the world of super phones. Dual core or higher CPU's and LTE = lousy battery life either carry extra battery with you if your a heavy user or charge at every opportunity. With my 9810 was lucky to get ten hours use before charging my Z10 gives me eight so over all not to bad considering the tech upgrade.

I just found out I cannot turn off LTE on mine which sucks. I did a complete wipe, completely drained it till it died, charged it up and left it sitting on table last night. Woke up this morning and it was at 95% after about 6 hours which good. I will leave it sitting there not setup all day and check the status when I get home today. After that I'll start adding apps and monitor battery use.
I must remember to try turning off the allowing swipe when locked feature as well. Will fool with it for the rest of the week then decide whether it is as pathetic as it seems initially or not. My 9930 lasts almost 2 days on a charge with normal use. I'm willing to accept 1 full day of normal use on a full touchscreen BB, nothing else.
