This CAN'T be right....
I had the Incredible for about a week and was not happy with the battery performance so I went and got the Seidio 1750 battery....
I did not bump charge.
My battery was fully charged when I unplugged it at 6:30 am
at 10:30 am my battery was down 49%.
I have the following
- Twitter sync's every 2 hours
- Facebook sync's every 2 hours
- Pure calender for all my calenders sync's every 6 hours
- Pure calender just for just Astrid tasks as a " to do list" syncs every 6 hours
- ATK kills my selected list every 2 hours
- Beautiful Widgets running
- I listened to some music off SD card using the default media player for about 1 hr
- I have Launcher Pro running
- I have screen dimmed to ~ 20%
I mean...is this the perfect storm for battery drainage?
IF you were me and wanted to get lets say 10 hours of battery life instead of 7-8...WHAT would you do?

I have wifi and BT always on and get 8 hrs on the stock battery.
I would get rid of ATK and launcher pro to see if that makes a difference.How to install an Invisible Shield

You could also look into erasing the phones battery memory,since you upgraded the battery.I'll find you a link

I never said I didn't believe you - there is a difference in not believing you and questioning who or what is documenting the full charge with the phone off.
While the phone is off, the lowest level of what I would call "power micro code" is controlling and monitoring the current along with the battery. It's going to decide the battery is full based on charged voltage reading vs charge current being accepted and any one of a billion other considerations being made for battery charging - but I don't think any of that is remembered anywhere.
That was all I was getting at.
Most devices base their battery capacity indicator with voltage reading comparison against information off the battery information pins as well as battery voltage drop when a current draw happens.
I'd be interested in knowing what the voltage reading is across the battery when its charged and when it all of sudden hits 90-80-70 and so on percent reading on the phone.

Go into your phone settings, phone info, battery... What are the percentages for apps using the battery?

Unplugged for 1 hr and 2 mins after bump charging 3 times....
79 % battery remaining
28% android system
27% cell stand by
22% voice calls
10% phone idle
2% media server
At this point I'm thinking that I either have a faulty battery or launcher pro is eating my battery alive.

Two questions also related to battery issues...
Is Android 2.2 or the OTA supposed to address these issues or somehow improve battery life?
Also, when I charge my battery, it seems like it takes forever to get up to about 50% or so, but then it rapidly goes from 50 to 100. What could be causing this? Is this a problem or is it common?
I'm sure these questions have been asked before, but I haven't had much time to check the boards lately....
