    The official 2.2 Froyo update for the Captivate worked miracles for my battery life. Before the update, most complaints on this forum were about atrocious battery times.

    I remember on Eclair, I would never even truthfully get one full day on 100% charge. After having Froyo for the past few months I'm just now realizing I can get like a day and a half on 100% charge easy.

    Has anyone elses' battery experiences significantly changed?

    I stopped agonizing over battery life months ago. I knew I did all that was possible - within reason - to maximize its life during the day, and have simply fallen into the routine of turning off the phone and charging it when I go to sleep. I use an alarm clock rather than the phone, so that's not an issue. I don't shoot for 18 hours, 24 hours, etc. of life. As long as the juice lasts while I'm awake I'm happy...and it has.

    I thought maybe it was froyo.
