If you are having issues with the battery life on your HTC Incredible, maybe you are having the same problem I am. This only occured for me when I added both an Exchange and a GMail account. The problem for me was that the GMail Contacts Sync is broken and syncing every single second. It did not do this until after I added my Exchange mailbox. I verified this by doing a factory reset and completing the steps all over again. The first step in checking Android platform battery life should be comparing the Up time to the Awake time. Up time is the amount of time that has passed since the phone rebooted last and Awake time is the amount of time that your device was on and transferring data, even if the display is off) Here is how I recommend testing: 1) Turn the phone off and then on again. Let it sit for 4 or 5 minutes. 2) Then load up the battery life counters. To do this, you go to Settings->About Phone->Battery 3) If Up time and Awake time are pretty much the same, then you have an issue with an application that keeps sending data. 4) My issue was the Google Contact sync was broken and kept syncing every second. You would see a very quick red circle flash for a split second very often under Settings->Accounts & Sync. I went into the Google account, unchecked Sync contacts and that was it. Battery life is much better now. If this didn't solve your issues, I suggest loading up a task killer, kill one task at a time and then compare Awake time to Up time and see if the application you just killed did the trick. I've also seen posts about different accounts like Flickr causing problems, so I would unset all the accounts in Settings->Account & sync as well to troubleshoot.
