    I'm getting about 15 hours out of my LG. I'm down to about 20% at the point. My usage is probably just normal. No heavy downloading or phone use. Is that about average for everyone?

    That's better than some people are getting on this phone. Stock users barely get more than 6-8 hours. I'm rooted and my best so far is a day and a half, but that's with no media usage.

    Go to Settings/About Phone/Battery Use/Cell Standby and look at your time without signal percentage. If this is high, then that is the main culprit. During the workweek I sit where there is a poor signal and I am usually between 90-95% of time without signal and I usually have to charge again by 1:00-2:00 because I am down to less than 40%. I take it off the charger at 6:30 in the morning. On weekends at home I take it off by probably 9:00 and by evening I will still have 70%+ charge. BTW, time without signal means that you are not connected to at least three towers. It searches until it finds three. I never actually lose a signal at my work and can still use the phone normally. It just kills my battery.

    I have the sense rom flashed and with heavy game/daya/wifi useage I get around 12 hours. Without the heavy useage I get around a day or so. Its all the metro garbage that runs in the background that kills you.
