    I'm not gonna lie, I'm on this thing so much I'm still going to invest in the charging bundle. But the battery is great! I'm able to go 10 hours plus without needing a charge. On my old 9930, I had to charge it during lunch at work even when I'm not even using it much. I'll be on this thing all night, play music to and from work, and still get home with atleast 10-30 percent left. And it's still good with the cold weather up here (upstate NY). My 9930 would die out in 20 minutes in temps under 32 degrees.

    How does 33% get you 7 hours?

    I'm on 19% and only have 2 hours left.

    The estimate is based roughly on the most recent hour of usage-- if you've been sleeping for an hour, it takes remaining Power Level divided by that level of drawdown. So looks like Nucks 26 had a relatively level time close to the picture, and then a quick drawdown because of posting to Crackberry and taking pics and whatnot...but the low-consumption led to the estimate. My guess is just before your 19% reading, you were JAMMING on something, multi-tasking and overall flowing/reveling in your wonderful phone...and the Device Monitor estimated that if you keep that up, you're not going to last much longer...

    (it is roughly how it works...your results may vary!)

    With the official 10.2.1 update on TMO I am LOVING the battery life on my Q10!! I have had mine off the charger since 6:50am and with moderate usage at 9:35pm I still have 75%. I have done texts, Facebook, emails and web browsing throughout the day.

    After 46 hrs continuous beginning midnight Sat, I captured the battery graphic with 23% to go. Then plugged my trusty Q10 into the charge cable, and slept. Come morning, I find the cable was connected to air, not the USB extension. Dang, only 13% left after 54 hrs continuous. Three nights, two full days of light email, texting, viewing web items. Nice to know it can last, by simply cutting down usage when no charge port is handy.

    FYI: the initial 8 hrs while I slept used 11% battery. Thus, the three nights took 33%, and two daytime use of light usage consumed just 23% each.

    Solution: before heading to work, grabbed my spare OEM battery bought last week from Amazon for $13 (that I'd charged up and placed in car's center console). Back in business. 100%.

    The spare battery price on Amazon has since fallen to $11.02 shipped. No need for $35 charger bundle. Great deal.

    Glad to see so many people BEASTing. When I started a diff thread about Beast Mode the doubters came out-- but these show it's more than an Army of One experiencing the same thing.

    It is Wed a.m. now and I unplugged Monday at work.

    Hope this all keeps up...karma might swing back and cause me drains, but for now, am appreciating it.

    Plugging in every other day has gotta be good for the longevity of the battery.

    And machine!

    How is this different from the battery that comes with the phone?

    Also, for anyone with the extended battery, how much wider/heavier does it make the phone?

    My battery life is terrible since I've gotten 2048. It's an Android game I've gotten off of Snap.

    Yeah I've noticed some Android apps will hide in the background and attack our poor batteries. It's sad, but the only option I've had was to uninstall the problem apps.
