Don't use a monitoring widget/app. Seriosuly. It was great the first week or so of having my phone so I knew how to gauge it. But seriously, if you're obsessing over your battery, and watching it all day, it's going to seem like it drains really fast. I removed the widget yesterday. I've been off my charger a good 45 minutes. My widget probably would have said i was already at 80%...which would make me seem like WTF. Now I'm just looking at my little bar..which is full green. 3g has been on the whole time. So, my tip? Can the widget, and just try using your phone without obsessing over the battery.
