    I saw that my phone was charging for 538 minutes (almost 9 hours) today. When i mean charging, i mean positive charge, not just sitting on the charger, i.e. when the led is solid orange, not when it is green. you can check for power charge using a widget like battery monitor widget to log power draw, if it is positive then it is it is being charged.

    I rarely plug the phone into the stock charger anymore. Instead I keep two standard batteries and one extended charged via a Seidio Multi Function Battery Charger and just swap out batteries as needed. Typically, a standard battery will last a full day, the extended 2-3 days. Less with heavier use of the phone. The standard batteries take about 2-3 hours to charge while the extended takes about 4-5 (either via the stock charger or the Multi Function Battery Charger).

    Once for the phone (with battery)
    Once for the spare battery (at the same time over night on a dual charger)

    So two batteries gets me through an entire day.

    On the stock battery it was 5-6.

    Verizon gave me an extended battery free of charge so now it's 2-3 overnight and then I'm good all day.

    I have the extended battery but rarely use it. I charge my phone at night, for about 7-8 hours. It is also charging anytime I'm in the car, because it's in the dock. I spend probably 90 minutes or 2 hours power day in the car.

    I place the TB on the charger at 21:00 hrs and remove it at 0400 hrs. I realize that how many hours the battery is actually charging is available but I have never paid attention. The extended battery keeps on going and going and going ...

    My phone goes from 0% to 100% using the stock charger and battery in 2.5 hours. I am averaging 15 hours between charges which for me is normally 100% down to 25-30% before i recharge. This is while running CM7 RC 1.3. I tried LTB 2.4 and was seeing even better battery life, but was having GPS issues.

    I average over 200 work emails a day being pushed to the phone and use FB, G+, Tapatalk, etc on a regular basis during the day so even though I'm not streaming video or similar all day long I do put a good load on the phone IMO. I am using 4g all the time as well since my wifi at work blocks FB and a few other sites and my home wifi is the same speed as 4g so I just dont bother most times with it.

    Mine is new, and I haven't gotten the extended battery yet. Because I work in an office, I am able to bring my charger with me, and have one in the truck as well.

    And - I use the crap out of these bugger; IheartRadio runs for 3 hours in the afternoon, so I try and keep it charged up when that's running at least.

    Sometimes every other day depending on use, sometimes just at night for about 30 minutes until full. Stock battery.

    Since I got my xoom my thunderbolt has been a bit neglected and I only have to charge it every 45-48 hours. It makes me wonder how long the extended battery would last.

    if i'm home all day or somewhere there is wifi, i could go all day and not think about charging. otherwise i can usually get about 12 hours, maybe a little more depending on use. i'm not sure i need an extended battery.

    Being that this is my first "smart phone" I was kinda depressed that the battery life was so short. I moved from the envy2 where I charged once a week or so to charging everyday with the Tbolt. I work third shift and plug in before bed and it usually lasts all day (9pm until 1pm or so) I have used many of the battery saver tips on this forum.
