    it's most likely apps you downloaded from the market running in the background. only moto makes phones that get progressively worse for seemingly no reason.

    Download an app like system panel that will show you what apps you have running or if you haven't restart your phone that might fix the app that causing your battery problems.

    Have you checked to see what is running on your phone? I have gotten better battery life after a few charges.
    Now with moderate use I get anywhere from 16 to 18 hrs.,with light use more then that ,,,,lightest use I ever had I got over 24 hrs .

    1) Make sure your Word for Friends isn't set to check every 5 minutes
    2) Upgrade to v4.04, it makes a HUGE DIFFERENCE
    3) Run on WIFI instead of 4G during the day if possible, its much kinder to the battery life

    Using WIFI + v4.04 I can go 40-48 hours on a Charge!!! I'm at 75% battery life left with 12 hours on battery so far (20 minutes of voice talk, lots of data stuff).

    Hey thanks for all the tips... I finally figured it out... I downloaded avast and ran the virus scan... It identified Brightest Flashlight Free by goldenshores tech as malware... It's in the market with tons of positive feedback.. Has to be bogus... I got rid it and now have 50% battery after work where I used to have to charge on my way home... my android os battery usage is at around have of what it was too.

    If you have that app, get rid of it!
