    I just ordered a new battery for my 8900. I'm wondering - when the batt arrives should I give it one full charge off the bat? Should I drain it and then give it a full charge?

    Are there any tricks to improving overall battery life, because my current battery doesn't last over a day with regular usage so I must have done something wrong!

    These new Li-ion batteries do not tolerate draining. Never let the battery drain down for best life. Charge often and deeply. From right out of the box charge to full capacity before using.

    Daily life depends on usage. Be sure to close apps through the menu key. Apps running in the background can deplete the battery quickly. On the 9000 at my work 3G drains from a poor connection. 2G gives much better battery life day to day.

    Lots of information here Welcome to Battery University.
