    Hey everyone!
    Did this for the .99 version too so felt like bringing it out for .103. I know i know at the time I made this it was a bit early but it will work in time and it works for people whos testing it now like me .

    So far, off the bat from my battery pull and charge to 100% at about 5PM EST, at 10PM EST, i'm sticking at 85% battery with quite some heavy usage.

    Over 200 texts and a phone call with slacker. Will post more as the night moves on.

    Post your findings and/or issues when you get them here

    It is still too early for me to post a battery review but it seems to be lasting just as long as it did on .99 for me. I have been running .103 for about 7 hours now with heavy usage (37 texts, 15 emails, 6 pictures, weatherbug with gps running, 45 minutes of listening to music and about 30 minutes browsing sites) and I still have 80% of my battery left. When I had .99 installed, I had about the same battery life.

    It seems like I get better battery when idle on 103
    When I use it however, it is similar drain.

    I guess only time will tell

    Battery life huge for me. I found that phone calls and browsing kill the battery more than anything. In .99 I end up having to charge my phone my 5 pm to make it the rest of the night. Hopefully that wont happen in .103

    Battery life .75 = typically at 20-3-% after 32 hrs.
    Battery life .99 = 20% after 52 hrs
    Battery life .103 - 25% after 12 hrs.

    Significant drain from .103. Best under .99.

    Do any of you guys with battery issues have themes installed. I'm trying to see if it's just me. Only thing on my phone that's changed or been installed in the past 2 OS builds has been the addition of two themes. I had great life on .99, installed two themes, and within an hour upgraded to .103. Can't keep the darn thing charged so I'm pulling the themes off after it charges and i'll see what happens. Just trying to see if I'm wasting my time.

    Seeing as there are no themes released for the 4.7 OS yet,
    i don't think themes are an issue.

    But there are. I have a few. Plazmic or how ever you spell it had an early beta leaked and everyone went nuts trying to get some themes out. I read somewhere on here that because it's such an early beta, it could hose the phone or cause problems. Both of which i'm not afraid of doing. Check out the themes section of this very site. You'll see them.

    I just installed 103 today at work around 8:30 AM. Battery was completely drained by 5PM with light usage. I have never had any issues with battery life previously with any other build. Normally my battery is around 50% by 5PM. Nothing has changed other than the OS.

    Ya, you should probably edit or delete that post seeing as there are tons of themes for the Storm in various places around this forum now.

    I installed one today that was really cool, but it was slow so I removed it almost immediately

    I didn't notice any difference between .99, my battery at the end of the day is at 80% with the same light usage (some calls <1h long in total, checking emails and a few pages). I only have Opera, Bolt, Google maps, AP news, and light saber installed for now.

    Not sure if themes are the issue, but on .99 from my last posts on some moderate usages i would get a 18 hour full day.

    Switching to .103 and using a bit more heavier usage along with themes it appears to drain more faster (as before i mentioned 8 hours.)

    Themes could be the issue, yet I did use a little bit more usage, but not enough to cause a 10 hour drain, and themes is the only new thing I have added.

    Could be the OS too... anything is possible.

    I did the upgrade to 103 last night late. put it on the charger around 3am. got up around 9:30AM and by 6:00PM with pretty light usage it was all done and beeping at me for a charge.

    Only 1 day experience, but substantially shorter battery life today with .103 versus .99
    Low enough for the radio to shut down at a time I would have had 50% remaining with .99

    The battery drain on .103 is horrendous. I unplugged it from the charger when I woke up at 8am. Its 10am and I lost 20% within 2 hours. My battery is hot. I have the Innocase and I can feel the heat. I never had this problem with .75 or .99. It sucks that I'm at work on a MAC. When I go home, I'm going back to .99

    FYI, I have 3rd party apps but none are running right now on .103. When I had them running on .99, I didnt have this problem. I have no themes installed.
