    So I was the first at my store to get the Turbo 2. Looking forward to seeing if the battery life is indeed as good as advertised with moderate use. Charged to full at 730pm last night now 830am and its at 58%. We'll see! Anyone else?

    I have not really checked mine yet because I have been on it more than usual setting it up but so far it seems to be on par with the turbo from last year.

    Same here more like moderate to heavy use setting up!

    You should see a gradual increase in battery life as you go through charge cycles and the battery gets conditioned. Important thing to remember is to not let it get below 15% - 20% charge, if you can help it.

    Thanks for the advice at 34% now so not quite 24 hours

    I presume you were playing with your phone quite a bit between 7:30 pm and whenever you ended for the night. Biggest battery drainer is screen on time, especially a bright screen. I've gotten 7+ hours screen on time at about 35% screen brightness with my T1. Curious to see how the T2 performs.

    I'd love to see screenshots of your battery use graph, and also your screen on time. I'm sure others would love to see it as well.

    You would be correct

    Nicely done.

    These screenshots are useful. The other one is once you are on this screen, if you tap on

    How's battery life on the DROID TURBO 2?-screen-tap.jpg

    and then take a screen shot of the screen time on, that would give us the two most important battery usage factors.

    I'm guessing somewhere between 20-30% is the optimal time to charge to full?

    BINGO! That's it. Almost 4 hours of screen on time and it only used 14% of battery. That is somewhat amazing. IIRC, my T1 screen uses about 30% of battery after 4 hours screen on time, maybe more than 30%. Your lookin' good.

    Yes, I wouldn't let it get much below 20%. At this time you could charge it for 15 minutes and test Moto's claim that it yields 13 hours of additional usage. Just remember to plug it in tonight so it can charge up fully.

    Cool thanks ironically enough, the Verizon guy yesterday told me NOT to plug it in overnight. He said that's bad for the battery I said I never heard that and it's common practice for everyone I know lol! I know with Samsung once the phone reaches 100%, the phone knows not to charge anymore but stays in a pulsing mode to keep at 100% until it's unplugged. Some smart circuitry or something

    I would guess 99.9% of all battery chargers have a circuit that shuts down the charging when the battery reaches a full charge. It's a pretty basic design feature. I wouldn't worry about plugging it in overnight.

    Yes! Definitely will be using a regular charger for night charging.

    Uh a "regular" charger?! Mine only came with one. Why wouldn't the one that came with it not be good to charge overnight?! Note I'm confused...

    I am using the charger from my Droid Maxx, but any old micro with a plug will do. They pump out less juice which in turn doesn't heat up the battery, which is not good for the battery's long term health. A slow charge is much better at night there is plenty of time for it to charge. I will use the turbo charger only when it is needed.
