    There are several Battery Drain type threads active in the last couple of days.

    Drift down through them and get a whole host of ideas.

    this post covers a good bit of it.

    Sometimes it can be a fluke. Glad everything sorted out.

    Disable haptic feedback/vibration for keystrokes and screen touches. These are pretty big battery hogs.

    Also I'm having very good success with "Juice Defender." Had tried "Battery Doctor" but didn't find that it did much for me. With this current setup I'm getting 18-20 hours of moderate to somewhat heavy use. This is by far the best battery life I've experienced on any smartphone I've ever owned.
