    So I took the plunge...

    I've only owned my droid maxx HD for a few days now.. but noticed that the battery life isn't matching up to other stats I've seen online by other users. I know people have mixed feelings on this ... but I did a full battery discharge until my phone turned off by itself. Then from there with out turning the phone on, I let it charge while off too a full 100% again. I tell you what, this process brought my battery to life. I'm at 94% right now and have been using my device for over 3 hours. As to yesterday at this time, I was at around 75% rather than 94%. As I said before, I know people have different thoughts on this, and say its not recommended or needed to let your battery fully discharge, but this worked miracles for me. Not that I recommend doing this often by no means, that was probably the first and last time I'd do it.

    I even used this app to help discharge it faster...


    Anyways .. just my thoughts on this process ...

    The battery life improves noticeably after the first three or four charge cycles, even if it's only discharged partially. I suspect you would have gotten to the same place in a few more days without a complete discharge.

    I've had mine since October and forgot how big an effect it is until we just got one for my wife a few weeks ago. She complained the battery life wasn't like mine for a few days but now it's even better than mine.

    Also keep in mind 'standby' time is virtually meaningless. The real important things are screen-on time and Talk Time. I was able to get 26+ hours with 5 hours of screen-on time and 4 hours of talk time...all without hitting the low battery indicator!

    Also, you should never let a Li-Ion battery discharge completely.
