    So I'm sitting around the past week since getting the DI and fussing with settings and such to maximize the frustrating battery life. Then the thought occurs to me...Why not find out which one of us has the record for running their battery from a full charge down to zilch!

    I mean we've spent countless hours tweaking things so that we get the most hours of life out of the device, so why not turn the tables on the darn battery and see who among us can suck it dry the fastest!

    If you're up for the challenge all that is required is to start at 100%, hammer away at the phone, make it work for its every last ounce of juice, and then report how long it took you to drain it. Additionally I'm sure we'd all like to hear what you did to suck it dry so fast.

    I'm starting my test tomorrow (got plans tonight and want to be able to devote my full attention to it) but I'm betting that someone will get under an hour pretty easily.

    Have fun!

    Would using a non-stock battery be considered cheating? :D

    Are you trying to tell me that there is a WORSE battery out there than the stock one? And if so why in the world would anyone want that? :)

    At any rate, go for it, there's noprizes at stake here in this contest so let's see how fast we can kill the battery!

    Nevermind, I realized I misread the post. I thought it was for who can keep the battery going the LONGEST under full use.

    I might have to find the stock battery for my Eris, cause that drains like no tomorrow!

    I'm having serious battery issues though I believe they're tied to the ROM I'm using right now, but I bet I could drain a battery in 6 hours doing nothing but letting it sit right now.
