    I decided that it would interesting to see what the real numbers are
    in the charge. I'm seeing everything from nearly 24 hours to 4 hours.

    I don't want to discuss solutions...that can be for another thread or even poll.

    So far my battery life has been phenomenal. Literally it lasts for over 24hours before absolutely needing recharging, and then it recharges so freakin fast.

    I use it mainly for business, talking, texting(loving swype), emails, remote vnc, etc...
    I like to play too, dloading soundboards, youtube, browsing...etc...

    Compared to the INC the droidX is 100% better.
    I have not changed my battery profile setting, still set same as day I got it.

    Current Battery usage shows:
    Current Level = 40%
    22h 25m 45s since unplugged
    Voice calls = 63%
    Display = 25%
    Cell Standby = 10%
    Phone Idle = 4%

    That's what I find most impressive. It seems that a lot of people are getting the great life your getting, and others are getting abysmal life.

    Of course these number maybe skewed by the fact that there are likely more people reporting lower numbers cause they would be the most vocal out those that are having great battery life.

    You should define what you mean by light, moderate, and heavy usage. Moderate usage to me might actually be light usage to someone else.

    While that is true. I do believe that most people on here have a sense of what's generally light, moderate, and heavy. Remember this isn't a scientific survey lol.

    But I will try to define a few general parameters.

    Heavy----Your on using your phone in some capacity greater than 75% of the time.

    Moderate--- Between %45 and 75%

    Light-- Less than 45%

    Again, not everyone will think even those are close to right....use your best judgement, you guys are a smart bunch!

    Does the droid X keep record of actual usage or just the last time it was plugged in?

    Or both?

    I have to say that my Battery life is not great. I have even noticed that when I use my car dock and I have the phone charging and navigating at the same time, the battery icon will go from a green charging icon to a yellow charging icon. Like more power is being used then is being given to the phone from the charger.

    Update to earlier post (made same day)

    Current Battery life = 30%

    1d 2h 8m 49s since unplugged

    Voice Calls = 61%
    Display = 27%
    Cell Standby = 10%
    Phone Idle = 3%

    Over 24 hours and still no need to charge.

    For a high powered smartphone "I" would classify that as good battery life.

    Want to increase your battery life tremendously?
    Remove the weather and news widget from your desktop, remove the vibrations when you touch keys, dim your screen by a notch, and shut off live wallpaper. The news widget is an absolute hog.

    But how is it a hog when it's set to refresh every hour or two??

    Honestly, how is anything hogging life when you set the refresh for 30 min or 1-2 hrs? I don't get why ppl never seem to explain that..

    All I know is I've done everything to fix the battery life, including gotten a replacement battery, and the lifespan is still utter shit.

    How can the life differ so much among devices? Makes no sense at all...

    Ok final battery report....

    From fully charged this battery lasted 29hours 10mins before it hit 10% life and was begging for the charger to be plugged in.

    Mainly used for voice calls, but I did dload a bunch of soundboards from the market last night too.

    Overall I think the life is fantastic. Especially compared to my old Motorola V950 Renegade that wouldn't last more than 4 hours without a charge.

    Oh, and the above life is WITH live wallpaper, news widget, social widget, vibrations for keys, and the backlight ON and normal as it came from the factory day 1.

    1 last final edit - From 10% battery to full charge was right @ 2 hours.

    My battery would die in 4-6 with light usage, it wouldn't recharge by usb and the Vzw rep said it's current was too high, so they've sent me another one. No big deal to me as long as they help me, which they have.

    Thanks to everyone who has voted and commented thus far. Keep 'em coming.

    I think one observation I can make is that it should be normal for the battery to last at least 12 hours before needing a charge under Moderate Usage. If your getting half that then either your phone and or battery are having some issues.

    As with any new phone like this, there are lots of bad apples.
