    My phone has been unplugged since 7am MST. I have used it pretty lightly,mostly checking facebook and sent a couple texts. And I am at 64% by 1:15pm.

    I don't know if this is bad or if this is normal....So I am curious to see what everyone else's battery percetage is.

    Here is my most recent running on SkyIcs 4.2f3-7. I've gotten better and worse results. So your mileage may vary.

    Amazing, I think I'm going to try Sky ICS. I have the ICS update and my phone, that used to last a full day, dropped to 45% in 4 hours with 20 minutes of screen use and 3 calls less then 5 minutes total. Absolutely horrible now

    Here is my battery screen shot.
    It's a custom rom. The developer has two versions: one based on the ATT release ; the other based on the Rogers official update.

    I just found one main thing that is running the battery down. The app voice talk has driving mode on by default. I turned it off and now my battery is not draining like it was.

    After a week on ICS, my battery life seems about the same as it was on GB. I did notice that if i turn off 4G, the battery life lasts longer. But once i turn it on, BAM! the percentage drops off sharply.

    Even though battery life isn't the best. The thing charges so quickly now.

    This is the best full charge of battery I've gotten since upgrading to 4.0. Pretty amazing. I was getting only 10 to 12 hours .

    Ended up wiping my phone and downloading my apps and info all over again. My battery life is much better! Before, I got about 8 hours on a full battery with about 1 hour screen time. My phone had 75% when I finished wiping everything and see the results below:




    I think with a full battery I can get 4+ hours of screen time

    Plus some of the lag is gone in the keyboard (although still not perfect) and I haven't gotten as many FCs
