    I've had mine since Tuesday, did a full discharge/recharge twice and the battery completely blows still. I even turned off polling e-mails to see if it would help. Unplugged at 11 am, dead by 11 pm. Unless there is a fix soon, this is just not going to work.

    My batterylife is pretty bad. My 680 needs a recharge on a normal\busy day.

    I have mine for over a week and discharged\recharged it's battery appr. 12 times (plus some trickle charges using the USB cable) and the results don't improve at all.

    Had my 680 for a week and the battery life is really disappointing. It may be improving it a little bit but it sure is not enough.

    Mine is Artic White unlocked and unbranded.

    I really do not understand the logic behind Palm's lame decision on the battery. Especially if they are aiming this device at a youthful market with little knowledge of smartphones. This will give them a very poor taste for any future Palm devices.

    Another surprsise, well maybe it isn't such a surprise, is that Palm has said absolutely nothing. Typical when they know they have made a serious mistake.

    Three complete discharge (shuts off)/recharge cycles, hard reset "fix". Battey is better, but slowly.

    Locked unit on Rogers service.
    It will be 2 weeks old tomorrow.
    I am finding that the unit lasts longer when I charge it with the USB sync cable.
    I looks like the battery likes a trickle charge vs the power adapter.
    It was off the charger last night at about 10:30pm. I made 3 calls today about 3mins each and a bit of PIM play. at 9PM it was at 80%.
    Now the same action if it was charged by the power adapter it would be dead by now. I would lose about 70% in one day for sure.

    Removed from the charger at 7:00am, Friday - dropped to 99% from 100%.
    9:00am Saturday - 79% (a few phone calls, updated calendar and pulled some mail).

    My first phone had terrible battery performance. Had that one replaced (not due to battery but due to freezing issues) and the second one has far superior battery performance. I would be at less than 30% by end of day (web browsing, email, google maps with traffic, 4cast every few hours, and medium phone use) to now same except probably more phone use and am at 68% so not sure what the differences are between the 2 but only had the first phone for 2 weeks and the second just got so hope if continues to improve.

    Both have the battery patch applied.

    I only use the charger (no cradle). Never charges the first time to 100%. Have to unplug and re-plug daily. I get about 3-4% loss per hour. Good for around 24 hours. Push email (good messaging). I live in China (China Mobile SIM card).

    This is off of a brand new copper 680. Battery life seems to be better than the two graphite models I had last December. Getting about 2-3 days of use between full discharges. I'm letting them go down fully to "break in" the battery.
