    100% But that is also because I leave mine connected to the PC while I am at my desk.

    Took it off the charger at 7 AM this morning. Now 5:20 I'm at 37%. Wifi on, GPS off, Autolocate On. Work Exchange (numerous email) and Gmail push set at as they arrive. Some websurfing, a little Sprint TV. Not bad. I carry an extra battery in my laptop bag, haven't needed it so far. Using a Centro Battery today by the way. Same performance as the stock Palm Pre I used yesterday.

    I don't know why but my battery seems to last longer when I have my email set to "as they arrive"

    My brightness settings are at about 25%. So it's not as low as it can go but it's a little less than the default setting. And I remember to press Power whenever I finish with what I'm doing so the screen shuts off right away instead of letting it auto-shut off.

    I took it off the charger (fully charged) around 12:50pm and it now has 20% left at 4:40pm! I have sent about 7 text messages, and received about 4 since then. The Sprint store also transferred my contacts over around 1:30pm, but other than that I have not used it. Bluetooth is off, Wifi is off, no apps are on. What is going on?!

    Had about 40 percent left now at 4:40 PM PST. Took it off the charger at around 8AM and have been doing light calling via BT, listening to music, surfing the net and using Sprint Navigation. I have to say battery life is pretty good.

    Took it off the charger at 8am. Sent and received about 20 texts and emails.
    Made 4 short calls. 15 minutes browsing the web. Downloaded 1 app and bluetooth is on. My battery currently at 69%. It's 4:56pm right now.

    I'm having the signal strength thing intermittently, but I'm on the TS at work and USB at home. I'm going to rely on 2-3 TS's and an extra battery unless Seidio larger battery comes with a TS back panel.

    Shame to spend so much money just to keep the thing powered up. Gadget lust is expensive.
