    Took my phone off the charger right when it turned green. Did not get the instant drop! Stayed in the 90s for 2 hours. Been of the charger for 8 hours and im at 65 percent with regular usuage. Usually my phone would be in the red at 6 hours. Idk if this is permanent but i sure do hope so!! Ill check back later with final time

    It happened to me today too. I posted earlier about coincidentally taking my phone off the charger at 98% just before it was done and after 16hrs, my battery has gone down 16% from 98% at 8.30 am to 82% at 11:15 pm. i think it is due to the phone not going past a full battery charge, it is no coincidence.

    This falls in line with what others speculated/reported that once the phone reaches full charge, the phone (and/or charger) does not allow a trickle charge, and stops charging. Consequently the phone may have actually been off charge for several hours prior to unplugging resulting in the dramatic drop displayed within the first few minutes.

    This is not to say juice defender had nothing to do with it, but it is food for thought.

    I got 12 hours of limited use the first few weeks, then it went down to 6 hours. After that, it got to 24 plus hours on one charge. Yesterday and today, I got only 4 hours, and I only checked it twice. I don't get it.

    I've been getting the same results ever since the update and i don't do much to try and save the battery except keep bluetooth off when not using it. It was pretty bad before the update.

    So, while we're on the topic: Juice Defender, is it worth it? Does it indeed save your battery?

    After the last ota update my battery life was cut in half.suddenly yesterday I noticed a vast improvement. I am currently on 31 hours without a charge. I haven't removed or installed any apps and have been using my phone as I normally do. Talked for about 80 min, sent about 50 emails, 300 or so texts, web and navigation.

    There is a free version, and I have found that it does infact increase battery life. Prior to getting JD I could get 25-28hrs max with my phone, now I can get 30-32. That's just with the free version set on easy.


    But do remember, Juicedefender does NOT help you if the phone is running all day. This helps with idle and standby only as it really puts the phone into a sleep mode when you aren't using it. Your standby should be greatly increased.

    At least these have been my results, and I've watched them like a hawk for 5 days straight. 3 without JD and 2 with.

    Can you use Juice Defender AND ATK or do they sort of cancel each other out?

    I am running both Juice defender the free version and ATK with no problems other than you need to reconfigure JD if you turn yor phone off at night. Not sure if the paid version works the same way, I don't want to have to restart or configure JD every morning.

    So that means you're going to exchange it again?
