No - it's good for a half a day of heavy use. I've been charging three times a day (noon, 5PM, overnight) but I'm heavy on the phone - 4 to 6 hours of calls a day on Bluetooth with all the apps open at once.

We'll get some tips on maximizing battery life out here next week.


"4 to 6 hours of call a day on Bluetooth" - WOW! Which headset are you using Will? I have the new Blueant Q1 and I am lucky if I get 2 hours of straight talk time.

Having the same issue!!!! It's really frustrating to charge the battery to 100% only to wake up and there's NO CHARGE at all. I can't work like this.

Last night, I went to bed with a 90% charge. Got an email at 2 am. Decided to turn the phone completely off and went back to sleep. Woke up this morning at 6 am to a COMPLETELY dead phone!

What tha?

@ people with the wifi solution:

should the wifi just be on at all time or just when there's no data coverage?

Re: Battery issues

I'd say it's more likely your battery that's defective rather than your phone... see about getting it swapped out?

And you're not running AIM, right? It's got a known bug that eats batteries 😞

Re: Battery issues

Hey guys I was browsing around and bumped into this. Looks like a 1350mah battery for the Pre that fits in the back without having to purchase an additional cover. I feel like it's a little pricey at 45 bucks but hey if anybody wanted that extended battery option there ya go.

Re: Battery issues

<p>That is a little pricey for that capacity of battery. While the extended battery for the Treo 700p is about $40, it's a 2400mAh battery... however, 1350mAh batteries for the 755p and Centro run about $25. I think the price will go down when others come out - it's all about competition, and demand. Right now the Pre is brand spanking new, and Innocell seems to have the only extended battery, so they can pretty much charge what they want.</p><p></p><p></p><p>EDIT: it looks like InnoCell is made <em>by </em>Seidio... so I guess Seidio isn't a competitor :P</p><div class="message-edit-history"><span class="edit-author">Message Edited by Doktor Jones on </span><span class="local-date">06-08-2009</span><span class="local-time"> 02:20 PM</span></div>

Re: Battery issues

Well, this was only the 2nd time yesterday that the same thing happened. I even charged it up again this morning &amp; when I turned it on got the same lightning strike symbol with the power cord &amp; question mark. Took it to Sprint &amp; they have been hearing this quite a bit. They ended up having to swap out my battery with their demo's battery because they just didn't have any new replacement batteries or Pres in stock.

Re: Battery issues

I'm currently downloading the WEBOS 1.0.2 which is 67mb.....hopefully this will help....The phone said it was going to try and automatically update once it got to a high network.......I hope this fixes the battery draining problem. I reached the update by going to my updates application under the third launcher screen. Cross your fingers......
