    I've gave my phone a right caning today, non stop use, games music Facebook auto updates, internet, and its lasted since about half 5 when I unplugged it this morning, just checked the battery use to see some stats since last unplugged, and it said 55mins since last unplugged and all the stats are roughly 10 mins ish :s,anyone ever had this?

    EDIT: Btw this was posted at 6.30 pm ish, so i had over thirteen hours use

    I'v been getting similar on my stock Desire 2.2 with Elixir monitoring phone, I'm not too bothered, as I know my battery has been running for 30hrs plus since last charge and I've been using it for all sorts of stuff during that time....

    I have 55 apps plus the HTC set-up apps, with 13 programs running (as I type), which includes poweramp,Yahoo mail, FB, Call history, stock messages, Market, Gmail, Settings, Firehouse schedular(calendar), Photo, Places(route finder), Elixir and Switchpro widgets... I don't normally kill apps except occaisionally 'stocks' (no task killer installed). I make calls poss 5@ 5mins regularly and send about 30 text, 4 emails and use FB throughout the day
    I leave wifi on when at home and don't normally turn it off when away from wifi area and only turn on 3g when I need it. I run WP Clock as a live wallpaper and have my screen brightness set to auto. I use GO Launcher Ex with 9 screens, each with at least 4 apps/folders per page ... other than that, thats's how my phone is set up.
    It normally returns 24hrs standard with 30+hrs fairly regularly, although I never let it run on less than 30% before I recharge.

    Could you please tell what might be the problem with my Desire? Why I'm not getting good battery back up and how can I solve it?
    Normally mail (exchange, IMAP), weather, news etc sync is on. Some programs (messages, pc sync, phone, Internet, wireless & networks, settings) stay running and use Internet over wifi for 10min/hr, voice call 5-10min per hr. Battery never lasts over 10hr.
    Do not use live wallpaper but all the 7 home screens are filled with different widget.

    @theguest13, I wish I could offer you and many others the key to long lasting battery life but I have only done the same as other users in the 'extend your battery life' threads... I use my phone as hard and fast as I need and cringe when it drains fast and smile when it goes on forever (currently 38 hrs and down to 39% left)... I have dark background on my screen and it's set to timeout after 2 mins. IMO it's dependant on what your doing with the phone that dictates how long the bettery will last, although I have watched a 1hr tv program via 'tv catchup' on web with 5% battery loss, that to me is quite acceptable.
    We have gone a bit off topic but I say... don't rely solely on the stats your phone throws up, just use them as a guide to make some minor changes.... enjoy using your phone and maybe get a spare battery, I did and it meant I could risk running it down quite low, then stick in a fully charged battery without waiting for it to charge , just when I needed it most !

    I just had a thoought, give Elixir a try, it helped me see more clearly what my phone was doing and how to trim a few apps.... it doesn't put a drain on battery use either.

    I'm not saying i had a problem with how long the battery lasted (i still had over 30ish %) just i thought it was weird how it was showing incorrect stats, and wanted to see which app had drained the battery the most, but couldnt. I dont usually look in this section unless i've not used my phone and it gets stupidlty drained,

    is this elixir on the market?
