    Hi All.

    HTC Wildwire S unroot and no special ROMs or anything.

    Mobile Network=off
    Bluetooth=off
    WiFi=off
    etc etc etc

    From a full charge the battery only lasted 5 hours.

    In those 5 hours the phone was idle for an hour, then for 4 hours following that GPS was logging for 4 full hours, camera used about 20 times with about 5 shots using flash.
    No sms, calls or mms or emails sent or received.

    I know 4 hours is a long time to continuously use the GPS but I expected more even though the screen brightness was on auto as outdoor.

    Any opinions - is this normal for this battery?

    ***and secondly***

    Anyone ever bought one of these...

    and if so - does it double your usage time and are they safe/any good.

    All comments appreciated folks. :)

    Download and install the free JuiceDefender app from the Market Store. Apparantly this helps with battery life.
