    Don't get me wrong, phone is amazing and way better than my old 9700, but damn I have to charge this thing once or twice a day. I am doing the exact same stuff with my 9700 and this is killing me. I have set the brightness to the lowest level and stuff and its still crappy battery life...

    Yes, 99XX has very poor battery life due to RIM's new JM-1 battery which is thin and less powered...
    Try searching this forum for extended battery, lot of people been already using it..
    It might suite your needs.

    JM-1 batteries have less power in them. In addition 99xx has faster processor, bigger and better screen. Thats never a good combo for battery life.
    You can carry a spare battery with you, they are unbelievably thin!
    Or you can buy an extended battery.
    Apart from these I find wifi to be saving amazing battery life.

    The logs I posted there were light to moderate usage at some times. I took it easy yesterday.

    Yes coming from the torch 9800 which use to get me thru the day without ever having to charge it till end of the night.. When I got the bold I can say it would last me 10-12 hours max or sometimes less depending how I use the phone.. But then lucky me when I bought the phone off my friend it came with 2 battery which is good just kinda hate carrying a spare battery around with me "just incase"

    If you say so, buddy. I've had my phone working since 7:30am, and I just go back from using my GPS for 20mins straight in downtown traffic driving to a client, and i'm still sitting at 45%. Before I used the GPS I was at 70%. After the gps, 60%. Then I went deep into a building where service was in and out, so I assume that dusted a good chunk off. But I'm still sitting at 45% battery after continual usage all day long and a 20minute GPS session.

    Compared to my iphone4 and my galaxy nexus, this battery life is great. I noticed my battery life improved after draining my battery down to red bar and charging it back up to 100%. Someone recommended it on another battery life thread.

    I was probably the one who suggested nearly killing the battery, although other guys on here will claim the li-ion batts like to stay between 20 & 80 percent charge and they DON'T like being totally drained.

    I've always nearly-drained my li-ion powered bberries then charge them fully and have always had great batt life tho, which is why I recommend doing that.

    Btw I'm sitting in night class now waiting for it to begin, and I'm still sitting at 40% battery remaining. I'll be on internet and txtn the rest of the night til I leave at nine, and will report in my results.

    I did a 12 hour road trip using bb maps, internet, email and phone calls from another state and returned home with 25% leftover. If that's bad I want more!

    While I cant comment on whether this may be OS related - batteries these days arent susceptible to developing "memories" as they once used to.

    7.1 has this already built in, no reason for a third party app.

    7.1 does not have MeterBerry built in. It has a battery monitoring function. The question was directed at the OP in regards to what was being shown in the screenshots, which is MeterBerry.

    Well I finally shut the phone down at 11:50pm last night, and still had 25% battery left.

    Eat that, iPhone.

    No charges during the day yesterday.
