    With the extended Moto battery, rooted, stock 2.2.340 all bloat froze via Titanium Back Up, screen brightness at an acceptable 20% or so, 30% wifi/70% 3G. I probably could have gotten a few more hours as it was at 12% when I plugged it in. I am not a heavy user. 10-15 minute talk per day, 20-50 texts per day, 20 minutes of Market, 30-60 minutes of internet per day. I never got this much life with any rom. Just thought I would share that.

    I don't pay too much attention but I can easily get 2 days of use running rubix. Way more than my OG droid and those poor souls with the new TB :)

    i have a feeling if i just left my phone alone until i actually needed it, i could get a solid 50 hours...but these things are so fun, i cannot put it down. :)

    Your display usage is very low, It would be expected for the battery to last long in this case. Doesn't seem like you used your phone much.

    Yup, makes perfect sense to me. I know if I want the most battery I use it less... just makes sense.

    I would be interested if someone could not use there phone at all or as little as possible and see what is possible. I think display is 70% of what eats the battery.

    I hit 70 hours with stock rom, extended battery and 90 minutes of calls a few weeks ago.

    Unfortunately I had to reboot b/c of a FC'ing app (unusual) or I would have taken a screenshot of the battery breakdown. I'm OC/UV at 1250.

    What app is that above?

    Put the stock batt back in. I could only muster 42 hours or so, but I played Angry Birds Rio quite a bit.

    Wow that is ridiculous! I would go apesh*t if my Captivate lasted that long. Sometimes just sitting there half the battery just disappears.

    Not using their phone.

    You guys know if you click display and phone calls from the battery use page it tells you how long the display was on and how long you were on phone calls.

    Those 3 screen shots, along with the brightness %age, are necessary to make any conclusion about battery life. Anything else that gets posted is basically useless.

    Didn't know it was possible. I might need to get an extended battery. I would be satisfied with just 12 hours, lol. I only get 8 hours right about now.

    Just dropping in to say hi :)
    I still find it very impressive still that they would get 70+ hrs without using their phones. I only got around 35hrs on my Nexus One and 28 hrs on my Atrix. Of course both of these were never rooted, lol...I'm thinking that might be the reason XD

    I have the extended battery too. Mine drains really fast. Somedays it seems to last long.. but other days if I'm using the internet it just drains like a motha. I have never gotten more than a day and a half out of mine.. that's if I barely use my phone..

    I guess I am not doing to bad. I am running Apex 1.4 and I have my display up to 32% Cell Standby up to 21% and Voice right behind it with 20%. I have been unplugged for 16h and still at 50%. So it seems to be par for the course which makes me happy. ;)

    But what have you done w/ your phone? Thats my question. Do you guys just turn them on and leave them on the end table for 70 hours w/out touching it? Thats the only way you could get that kind of battery life imo.

    Personally, as of right now, I just flashed my phone to a factory reset and placed Apex 1.4 and the theme on it and I have spent the entire time either talking on my phone or setting the desk top back up.

    I use my phone for work and personal reasons and used it for a good part of yesterday. I also came home and spent the entire night setting up the screens the way I wanted to and shopping on the market for apps to finish out the install of the ROM all while having WIFI on.

    I am not saying I am the best at this, I just know that killing aps and making sure your only using what you need to use when your using your phone and getting rid of the stuff 100% after your done using it you should see a significant increase in battery life. Task managers are your friend... use them frequently. :p
