Yeah, I just got my extended batt yesterday, fully charged last night and kept it off charge all day...

Hour commute, streaming music and Waze (GPS/traffic/map app) both ways. Moderate/heavy use throughout the day, browser, lots of texting, app installs, some gaming, social apps updating, etc. Took nearly 13 hours to kill it on 1st charge, recharged at home w/stock adaptor and back to 100% in about 3 hours. :) I'm happy.

I can't get a good battery reading when i start playing that Damn Drag Racing game that was the APP of the day a couple days ago. It is more addicting than Angry birds or Turbo Grannies. and it kills the battery

Are you guys rooted/debloated?

I was only getting about 10 hours out of the standard battery with moderate usage. I purchased the extended battery and I'm only getting an extra 3 hours out of that with the same usage. I was actually a bit disappointed since I thought I'd be able to get at least 16 hours out of the extended battery.

I think I'm going to take the plunge this weekend to root/de-bloat the phone now that the Fastboot Recovery files are available and cvpcs will be releasing bootstrap either tonight or tomorrow. I just didn't want to take the chance and end up with a brick after just having the phone for a few days.

I am rooted and de-bloated so all the extra bloat processes are not running in the background eating up the battery.

Definitely rooted and debloated.

So last night I decided to root and de-bloat my phone, and I haven't noticed any significant changes in battery life. As I type this, my phone has been off the charger for 6 hours 30 minutes and it's at 50% with the extended battery.

Usage is as follows:

Cell Standby 44%
Phone Idle 38%
Display 9%
Android OS 7%

Is there a way I can find out exactly which app(s) is draining my battery? I'm going to let the battery drain tonight, charge it and then clear battery stats in the morning to see if that helps.

Any suggestions?

I am rooted and debloated via TBH app. 4g and wifi (at work and home). I haven't remembered to keep it off charge since my last post but it's easily making 10 hours plus off charge with more than enough juice to go another 10 or 20 (currently 10.5 hrs with 70% left after my usual moderate to heavy use -- off charge just before 5pm and it's 3:30 local).

This is with an hour half of GPS, lots of gaming and streaming Rdio for 2hours among lots of other use. Also includes me sleeping and not using the phone too.

Then there must either something wrong with my phone, or something wrong with my extended battery. Yesterday I barely got over 13 hours on the extended battery before it died... :(

Everyone tells me "Just keep a charger at work and plug it in", but that isn't really solving the problem of finding out what it is that is draining my battery so much faster than anyone else. I compare that to someone getting bad gas mileage on their car and just telling them to just fill up the tank whenever they pass a gas station instead of finding the root of the problem.

Hopefully someone with some more knowledge can chime in and shed some light.

There is a way. A free app called OS monitor will monitor all the processes on your device, showing the CPU load of each one. Now while OS monitor is running, it will show about a 12% load from itself. Anything above that is something else running in the background. Scroll and find out what it is if anything.
Check to make sure GPS is off when not using it, and if you're in a fringe 4g area, lock you're phone to CDMA only.
Hope this helps.
