    On mine, I usually am pretty low by the time I go to bed. My day starts at 5am and ends around 10pm.

    But sometimes, with heavy use of Telenav or listening to streaming radio and podcasts, I can drain it in less than 12 hours

    I always have an extra battery in my purse though....

    I'll get a solid 24 hours out of it and still have some energy to drive to work (with bluetooth connected) and hang out for a bit before I go to charge it.
    really good battery life for my use!

    I can get anywhere from 1.5 to 2 days out of a full battery charge with normal usage.


    Some heavy web browsing, navigation and maybe some music being played or tv watched and it'd be only a day.

    Similar to what's been posted. About a day for heavy duty use and 1 1/2 days for normal use. Here's a link if your looking for a battery that gives you extended life:

    Pretty much about one day on very heavy use. Usually 2 or more days on normal use which for me includes:

    -AIM (always on)
    -Google Talk (always on)
    -Viigo (always on w/30minute updates)
    -BB messenger
    -texting (900-2000 per month used)
    -browser use
    -Facebook (always on)
    -wireless (via bluetooth) syncs with Outlook a few times a day without being on the charger; I do this to drain the battery as i could just leave it on the dock at times.... but it moves a lot....

    yup. love my 8330

    I meant extended battery, not batteries.

    Also I don't use GPS

    I took EricaJ's advice a while back and purchased the extended battery. I can go two days with heavy use and some GPS.
    With heavy use and heavy GPS I get a solid 24 hours. I often use the GPS for up to 3 hours at a time with phone calls. Thanks goodness for the extended battery, its a life saver.
    Thanks EricaJ for telling me it was worth getting
