    Well I keep meebo running and messaging on that, only got 3 email accounts up, and using gv to text, made a call which lasted maybe 20 minutes, I was browsing a few websites, downloading apps.

    I did take off my task killer, and I think that might have made things worse lol.

    Settings>About phone>Battery use - Should be a good indication of what is draining your battery.

    Disclaimer: This is how it is on the Droid, not sure if the set-up is the same on the X or if Motorola tweaked it, but there should be a battery use thingamajig in there somewhere.

    Wow, I'd feel lonely without my messenger running 24/7 lol. I'm going to have to try and keep it off for a day though, bye world.

    Yes, for me its About Phone > Battery Manager > Battery Use
    and it mentions the biggest battery hog is the screen at 75% but seems to general. I did what it suggested and lowered the screen brightness and timeout.

    aim also fits into that group.

    op: put the phone in battery saver mode. Realize that lwp are battery killers, reduce your brightness a tad. I dont use meebo though but I use the browser for google voice and I lasted 8 hours yesterday on that setting.

    Battery at 10% now and I've had the phone off the charger since 7:15 AM EST. I'm going to try keeping meebo off, I adjusted the screen settings, anything else I can try on my next full charge.

    Thats another thing. I'll now hook it up to my pc and by the time I leave work, it will probably be at 60% then I'll hook it up to my car charger and by the time I get home it may or may not reach full charge so I would plug it in to the charger at home to get it to full charge. All this plugging in and out, is this also harming the battery? I would think no.

    Don't the batteries need a few charge cycles to reach optimal performance?

    Can you tell me what apps you are using? One thing to remember is that it starts to dischage after it reaches 100% even if it is still plugged in and the battery indicator says 100%.

    If I were you I would run your battery all the way down to nothing. I did that yesterday so hopefully my battery will be good today.

    YES! it takes about 10-12 cycles to have the battery running its full capacity. You should not worry about your battery until a week or so and then see what it is doing. It's also a brand spanking new toy. We are all like little kids on xmas day with a new toy wanting to play with it every single second. Thats me anyways I havent been able to put the thing down.

    Ah of course, I wont even dare use that lol. I did on my HTC Aria, and the battery life was better on that lil monster.

    Thats what I understand, been about 2 for me so far and this is where Im at.

    I basically listed them in my 1st post.

    Thats what I just did, just plugged it in. Well at least while its charging, this is when I can really play with the device and not worry about battery life and such. Time to push some apps :D

    #1 battery killer = Network signal.

    Check your signal strength (not the number of bars). If you're in a low signal or congested area your phone will chew battery hunting and locking on a signal.
