    Can anyone give me a basic time frame on how long I could stream Pandora on my phone before the battery gets too low?

    I want to stream it with the screen turned off while I'm at work, and was wondering if anyone knows how long I could get out of it.

    This is on a G1.

    I've got a G1 as well. I had a full battery (100%), and streamed Pandora for about an hour. My battery went all the way down to 50%. I made sure no other apps were running in the background. That was also with the stock battery that comes with the G1.

    I was testing out the battery life while streaming it earlier, and about 45 minutes to an hour it dropped 10%.

    Also, does streaming MP3s use a lot less battery life?

    Are you guys using the phone speakers or a headset? On a headset, my Eris can go for several hours (so much so that I fell asleep with it on, woke up a few hours later and it was still playing)...

    I normally use my headset. I'm not sure what battery the Eris has, but I'm sure it has a way longer battery life than the G1.
