My Desire is showing battery still at 92% at 3pm
By now, I'm usually giving it the same TLC Button does to his tyres on lap67
Did the world famous (but previously mythical IME) battery conditioning kick in last night????
Still at 75% at 23:00 and I've been at a BBQ and showing off Google Sky Maps!
(So its not the battery indicator level thats wrong - its actually lasted all day and all evening in the hands of a geek who spends all his travelling time testing his GPS speed sign alert app!)
Well - couldn't put in on charge last night and at 9am its still showing 79%.!
This is very very spooky - prior to yesterday it used to normally be down to the red bars by 5pm.
Tell me about it!still having battery after 24 hours while using GPS and data intensive apps like Sky Maps
The thing is - its not just the battery widget is it - cause the the phones still working!

Incidentally, I'm trying to persuade myself I don't want one and failing. How wrong am I?
If it's windows 7 try running powercfg -energy in a cmd window it should interrogate the battery and give you all the information. Ah sorry desire is a phone.
Still considering the desire?
I initially thought it was a laptop, forgot the desire was a phone. Apologies.
Thing is, unless you have to have a new phone right now, I'd wait a couple of months for 2.2 based phones to come out, I heard somewhere on this forum Dell have one on the way with a 2ghz processor!
I recently discovered that disabling my Twitter app from syncing will allow the battery to last longer than 14 hours. I can now make it from morning 'til bedtime without seeing the battery dip into the orange (Nexus One)
Thats not going to win first prize for battery lifeI heard somewhere on this forum Dell have one on the way with a 2ghz processor!
The thing is - I'm not doing this - AFAIK I'm doing the same as before I switch Bluetooth on/off when using the car( but only faff with that because my bluetooth in the car is on all the time and my phone still picks it up in the house !) and I'm plugging it in the car charger when driving to my schools (which I've been doing since day 1)(such as turning off data connections when you don't need them).
I did try and download something called juice defender a few days ago but the download seemed to fail and it doesn't show up in programs so I've assumed it didn;t install itself unless its some sort of magic app that works invisbly
