    So I've had my Desire for about 6 months now and everything seems fine except for the battery life. For some reason, it drops so quickly.

    I used to have a battery life of 40+ hours (2 months ago). Now I believe it's well under 20 even under Idling conditions.

    Example 1:

    I charge it to 100% and leave it in the charger for 1 hour while it is on. I unplug it and leave it to idle. My internet is on, GPS is also on but nothing else is running. 1 hour later I check and the battery is at about 87% and continuing to drop quite quickly. I check my internet usage and it barely used 5 kb.

    Example 2:

    I charge it to 100% and unplug it. Then I set the alarm clock with HTC's default alarm clock. When I wake up 6 hours later, the battery is at 49%.


    My Battery usage shows that CELL Standby, Phone Idle and Android System are usually at about 33-30-24 % respectively. The rest are consumed by recent applications. Display is usually under 6%.


    Any ideas as to what is going on or have any of you experienced this as well? What about boost charging? I usually do that once every 3 - 4 weeks as it helps maintain a battery life of at least 30 hours after I do it.

    I'd be happy when I'd have 20h battery life ;)

    But back to your problem.
    Some times ago I saw an app which could be helpfully for you ...
