    hey all,
    completely new to the forum so forgive me if i didnt post in the right area or something. a few days ago i purchased a droid 2 global. it is used. my previous phone was the droid 1. something im noticing that really bothers me is the horrific battery life. for example; this morning at 8:30 i unplugged it (fully charged). at about 10:30 it was down to 80%...i literally did virtually nothing with it. i checked the weather once. i have wifi and bluetooth shut off, as well as GreenPower battery saver downloaded and working.
    so now what im wondering is, is this normal? since its a used phone i was thinking it could possibly just be that the battery is old? :thinking:
    anyone have any opinons? thanks a lot!

    Check to see if you have the Gingerbread (2.3) update. That significantly helped with battery life. I can easily go 2 days without recharging most of the time.

    If you do, check to see what programs are using power.

    What is the status for the entire day? Also, the weather has a lot to do with it. The colder the weather, the faster the discharge.

    Hey Bud..

    I was given a used Droid 2 (about a year old) by a friend. With just light use, I was losing battery life quick. I bought a new battery and I was amazed how much better it was...If you want, I can post an ebay link to the seller I used on ebay...I bought 2, both oem, both about 5 buck each..


    besides checking to see if you have the update, I would do nothing to it untill i started with a fresh battery..


    here is the seller and battery I bought...

    Batteries are new, they worked great, and I got them quick...great seller..
