From the Motorola site: POWER up to 360 min / 6 hrs USAGE TIME (CONTINUOUS)2 BATTERY TYPE 1420 mAh lithium polymer STANDBY TIME2 up to 325 hrs / 13.5 days I did away with all the motoblur stuff but I've been having problems with my battery life still.... I've been running a bunch of apps, IMing, emails, wifi etc.... and it's been lasting about 6 hours. Today I cut everything back using "advanced task manager free" and after about 6 or 7 hours I still only had like 40% left...... no where near anything like the specs. Six hours continuous talk time???? 325 hours standby??? Certainly not the way it comes out of the box!!! Who are they trying to kid????? Is anyone getting anything near this?? Is there even any way to get close to that???? WTF??? Does anyone find these specifications deceptive? My battery might not be the best but it seems to be at least average from what I hear. Please tell me what setting I need to get this kid of battery life!!!!! Some people here have said deep cycling the battery helps but that's supposed to be bad for lipo batteries Some people also say you need to charge the battery fully before first use or you can ruin it but no other sites mention that. I want to be able to use gps and apps and wifi and email and IM during the day w/o being tied to a charger all day. I was a dedicated sidekick user but now love the cliq.... except for the battery life. I thought of getting a spare battery but don't want to lug an extra battery around...... I've seen apps (APNdroid) that shut off the data to conserve battery life but I want to use the features of the phone... that's why I have it....... what's the answer???? btw: "battery graph" and "spare parts" are great apps to monitor battery usage. Also, in some places it says the bp6x battery is rated at 1300 mAh and in other is says 1420 mAh but it's the same battery!!! What's up with that??? Question: What kind of battery life do you experience with "normal" usage??? Does anyone know what settings to use to approximate the times noted in the Cliq specifications? Thanks!!
