    90' - 100' here in Puerto Rico by day. Nights are from 75 - 85. Winter hasn't brought the cooler weather to Puerto Rico this year. Last year it was a cool 79 by day for the most of december and january. The heat got turned up for us this year FTL!!

    Now back on topic, my battery life has been great recently, i wonder why
    not quite
    -10c is 14*f
    -20c is -4*f

    the c. vs f. slope doesnt intercept at 0.

    its just about -20c in denver right now. at -68f youd probably freeze

    I just dip my pre in ice cold water when i'm not using it then dry it out with rice when I need to use it. So far my battery has lasted 2 weeks on a single charge with semi heavy use.

    I've heard that cold beer is better than cold water for that.
    But you didn't hear it from me.

    It's always good to have a math teacher on board to staighten things out. Good catch.
    I knew that sounded strange too, I just couldn't crunch the numbers.
    It might have something to do with my previous post.

    well its cold here even though its 28 out side I'm not used to it and I gate cold. I live in fl. for a reason because I like heat and man am I missing it today lol. It only gets colder tomorrow man that bites .

    In fact almost no batteries like to be active when they're cold.
    Some can be stored longer in a cold state (slow internal self discharge

    have to warm them back up before use.

    Whatever reason the battery usage was better, it wasn't due to the cold.
    Probably had to do with having either a really good signal at the ski
    area, or roaming, or none at all.

    All true. Especially with Lithium cells. The stated capacity on the battery only applies at room temperature. You can normally squeeze a bit more out of a flat battery by warming it up.

    Self discharge over a day is likely to be tiny compared to what the phone uses in idle, so i doubt it made much difference. Also note that the 'Gas Gauge' of the phone will probably only look at the measured power drawn against the nominal capacity. It may also do some form self calibration over time to improve it's estimate.

    You probably had a very strong signal from the base station where you were and hence the phone did not have to transmit so much power to talk to it.

    It's 1F in Denver with snow...grew up in MN & that used to feel warm to me...not so much anymore. Heh. But I don't like hot weather & love snow, even if I can't handle "real" cold these days. Haven't noticed any difference in battery life warm or cold.

    Ahhh, apologies. That's the result of a late night and stupidly placing a Negative/minus (-) sign in front of the positive integer equivalent.

    i'll stick with metric

    i dont understand how global warming makes it colder. i call it cycles of the earth. we have had several global warming fazes in our history with no humans around

    So that raises the question does the Pre battery perform better in an a cryogenically cooled state???? Do we need to miniature cooling units with us to have have a shot at normal battery life?
    just so you realize that the cold weather doesn't affect the battery life. Were you in airplane mode? If so this is why you were at 100%. I have been at 100% before after having my pre off for 6 hours and i didn't use it. But then once i started using it it went down to 65%. The way the pre tries to see how much battery life is left sucks. I honestly think palm is rounding up to make it look like battery life is better when it isn't.

    Now that i have the battery % patch installed my pre's battery goes down MUCH faster. Atleast the patch isn't trying to fluff on how much life i really have.
