    Its very weird, i haven't charged my phone in almost 4 days, and i have definatly been using it a decent amount. Texts and e-mails all day, a few phone calls, playing around with Google Maps and listening to music at the gym with bluetooth enabled. i still have about 50% left, i did a battery pull. still the same. Awesome.

    Thats off the chain. Now all u other Storm batteries taken note. This is how u behave! Its good to see a Storm battery leading by example rather then being a lazy little shi t like most the others. Mine isnt too bad tho, if i take it off charge at 7am, il use it all day (mostly internet at work, but i work 12 hours so thats quite heavy use) and im still on it doin stuff about 11pm, il have about 35% battery left. Couldnt do 3 days or more tho. 2 With moderate use i rekon. Now reward ur Storm battery with treat. ;o)

    103, ive never gone this long with .75, even with .75 where i just left it alone all day it would die on me by the end of the day even without touching it.

    I'm on .75, push the phone pretty hard too. The most I've depleted is 50% in one day.

    I did run it down to 20% once but that was a day chock full of app installations, uninstallations, and resetting with quickpull. I hadn't realized how taxing rebooting can be on the battery.

    Still, as long as it lasts 24 hours, I'm happy. And when that no longer happens, new battery!

    Do you run weatherbug by chance? I've heard people on here saying it kills battery and I'm wondering if that's a myth

    I am on .103 and my battery drains in 6 hours with pretty steady use. I have WeatherBug running and keep other apps closed at all times. Not sure why, its kind of annoying! Anyone else with similar issues

    I had significantly quick battery depletion with .75 basically and the end of a 12 hour day even with minimal use, the battery would be Dead. I upgraded to .103 and now at the end of the day I have more than 80%.

    Peculiar...

    But I am happy about it.

    My question is what apps are you running other than google maps? It seems like my apps drain my battery more than the actual phone does.

    Poynt, QL, GoogleMaps, Myspace, Instango, Slacker, Quick Pull, Mobile Bartender, Capture it, Aerize Alerts, Vib and Ring, TouchBubble, Tiltris, Nintai, Solytaire.

    Obviously they all aren't running, and i don't use them all the time. But one thing that gave me one **** of a boost was i turned off Aerize Alerts and i uninstalled Weatherbug and ive been getting PHENOMENAL battery life.

    My fiance has had the same experience with .103. I helped him upgrade on Sunday and he still hasn't needed to charge it. Granted, he runs next to no apps on his Storm. Just introduced him to Google Latitude...I have a feeling that running that app is what's causing my battery to deplete in 1 1/2 days on .99. I have the location sharing option turned on, so it never really closes. I'm gonna have him leave Google Latitude running today and see what happens.
