    So I got the extended battery at the same time I got my Bionic. I've heard through random places that the battery usually lasts about 34-36 hours with moderate use. So, I play Surviving High school for an hour and a half, and it goes down from 70% to 20%. Is that common with the extended battery? The Verizon store told me it was normal, but that still seems like a large amount of battery life.

    I just watched them all, and very few actually apply to me. Those wouldn't really be why I get such low battery life on the extended battery.

    I have no direct experience with this app. The information in Android Market shows that it uses GPS and GPS is a known battery hog. Perhaps this is the reason.

    Do you only have this problem when running this app? If you do you could consider using it when connected to the wall charger.

    The app demands a lot of the phone. Yes it will be common for any game to drop your battery percentage by a significant amount. Games will drain a lot of power from your cpu and display. Games aren't general moderate use app, more like heavy usage. I have had played that game and saw a big draw in my battery usage which I was aware of.
