Hey all. Just got this phone and love it. Coming from a curve. I charged fully before use. Started playing with it at about 8pm last night. Went to sleep. Today I set up my exchange email and have been surfing really since I was up at 9. I'm now at 5%. Up time is 15hrs. Awake time is 5hrs 10mins. I had trouble activating at first. Had to battery pull and do a factory reset. Was on the phone a VZW for almost an hour. But my battery seems to be doing well. Sorry I can't give more detailed battery info. I'm new to Droid and have very few apps so far. Thanks to everyone on this forum. I got this phone despite being in a 4g area and couldn't be happier!

I woke up Sunday, worked all day (i work for Verizon) and fell asleep Sunday night without plugging my phone in. Used the phone all day Monday and forgot to plug it in again. Total...42 hours, 45 minutes of uptime!!! 8 hours of awake time. My GPS was on, my wifi and bluetooth were off.
This is pretty amazing seeing as how I used the phone as normal. lots of calls and text messages and a few web searches and all the normal Android widgets running.

I got rid of task manager and juice defender because they were impeding my phone use and temp rooted and removed the bloat and my battery life is unreal. The only thing I never leave on is gps and that's more so apps don't use it, WiFi and Bluetooth are usually on and I only turn auto sync off if its close to dead. Lasted 2 days no charge multiple times after cycling the battery for about three weeks. It's just how batteries are when you first start to use them but I'll never recommend a task manager to anyone again.

I still have no complaints but I was on a long trip today and noticed the following... When I'd go green w a full charge for example and stopped for 5mins for gas, started back up and hit the road, it took quite some time to go green again. I'd guess it was red and charging for like 20 or 30 mins before it was again green and at full charge. This happened every time I stopped and got back on the road. And WiFi, Bluetooth and gps were all off. Anyone know why it does this? Seems pretty weird, not sure if I should be concerned....

Today was my first full day with the Inc2. The battery lasted about 8hrs before dropping to 20% charge at which point I put in my spare battery. I was getting similar battery performance with my D2G.
If I want to see what apps are running, I go to Settings/Applications/Manage Applications and switch to the "Running" tab. I was surprised to see apps I never opened (like Flickr) were listed. This is why I used Task Manager on my D2G to automatically kill these apps.

I have had a light day today. Let me see where I'm at right now:
16 hours and 16 minutes off the charger
Currently at 60% battery left
Approx. only 3-4 hours of screen on time in use. FB, twitter, text and web. No music, video or gaming. Mostly on wifi.
Even on heavy days of use though, 24 hours is about average for time between charges and it usually has 20-30% left when I hook it back up. I've only drained it completely on the first 2 cycles. I tried out Juice Defender for a week or so but I couldn't keep it from going into Airplane mode at night (I have a sick father and have to be able to receive calls at all hours), so I uninstalled it a couple days ago.

Just so no one pokes me about it, I have not read through all the posts in this thread yet.
I just wanted to share the battery life issues with my Incredible 2. I can unplug in the morning, lock the screen and leave home only to find that after 5 - 10 mins of no use, my battery has dropped to about 90%. So far, I haven't used the device a single day without draining the battery. Some days, I've even had to curtail my use just so I could make it home with enough power to make a call if I had to.
I disabled auto-sync last night and am currently at 84% where I would normally be at <70%. That's not as good as some users are reporting, but it's better than it was yesterday!

An update for my battery life lately after having the phone about a month.....I have found that as long as I do not use too many "draining" type services (videos, games, full brightness on screen etc) I get all day performance.
I can still make a bunch of calls and emails and the occasional "drainer" and things are cool.
I still hate that the camera controls are in a crappy spot for 1 handed shots but love the phone otherwise.

Experiencing pretty good battery life here. I can unplug in the morning and go 1.5-2 days before charging again.
Was noticing poor battery life (1/2 a day) for a while, but I think that's because the phone was constantly searching for wifi. Once I properly set up the wifi access, my battery life problems went away.

Mine usually lasts for 10-11 hours some texting, some sodoku or words with friends when i'm bored at my desk and some app downloads if i see a cool on on a forum. I wake up at 6am and usually have to charge it on my computer before i leave work around 4-5ish.
However i just downloaded a battery app (batt stat which is pretty cool looking btw) and i've noticed upon waking up it'll go from fully charged to 90% by the time i finish my morning shower. and its probably been 2 hours and now my batteries at 80%. I have ****ty reception at my apartment so i'm thinking thats why my battery dies so fast in the morning? 100-90 in 5 minutes? and then 90-80 in 2 hours? But then after my shower i have a 15 minute subway ride which has absolutely no reception but that doesn't drain my battery. Anyone have any ideas what it could be? My wifi is turned off, all 3 gps's are turned off. auto sync is turned off brightness is at like 15% (guestimated)

I promise I'm unaffiliated with the application and its developers!
Anyway, the app has helped me save a considerable amount of battery life and has also helped me to improve performance of the device on several occasions.

I'm getting the awake time same as uptime nonsense also. I don't see any of the bloat stuff in the usage doohickey, and even so the life seems pretty good. I haven't run it down and full charged it all yet either, wasn't aware that was something that should be done. I'm OCD about the battery, if it looks like its under half I'm looked for the cord. Hehehe.
Going to try temp root to freeze the Verizon garbage and draining out the battery a few times.
Edit: After temp root and freeze, up and awake times are different.

I signed up for this forum just to leave a comment on this thread. How...please tell me...you guys are getting such great battery life out of your Incredible 2's???? I send a few texts, make a couple of phone calls, listen to 30 to 45 minutes of a Cubs game and my battery is easily at 50%. I unplug around 9am and every evening by 6pm I am plugging it in to charge. I don't use GPS or WiFi.
