    About three months ago, I got a Mugen Power 1400mAh battery for my Pre plus.

    Now it seemed to last longer than the original, but lately it has been pretty pants with a full charge dissipating with regular use (3g and Wifi mostly) in about 36 hours.

    In frustration, I put in a BP1 battery from my old Pre (non-plus) and gave it a full over night charge and it now seems to last for about 56 hours with the same usage.

    Anyone else find that the Mugen batteries are not marvellous?

    Very dissappointed with it.

    I just finished the first 12 hour charge on my mugen 2800 battery I got yesterday. 6am I turned on bluetooth, wifi. Checked email, preware updates, app store updates, and streamed youtube videos for about 20mins. I am now down to 90% at 7:26am. I will be posting my levels throughout the day. Oh and brightness set at 20%...

    For got to mention govnah set at screenstate 500/1000. Email is set to "as arrive". That should help drain it a little faster. 8:12am-88% no usage since last post.

    which mugen battery do you have? have you used dr battery to callibrate and check health? most have reported good performance from Mugen (better than I've ad from my Siedio batteries) so I'm curious if yours is wearing out, defective, or just working hard because you have background tasks that you aren't aware of.

    also, run jstop to see what's running. make sure you don't leave jstop or govna open as they both poll the phone constantly which taxes the cpu and battery.

    I have the Mugen 2800mah. Dr. Battery report:
    Mfg rating of 2483mah
    Capacity-same
    Health is 100%
    Have not done a calibration yet I wanted to atleast finish the first cycle of charge and recharge. However I would like the secret code to set the mfg rating to 2800.

    Found the perfect holster for the Palm Pre with extended battery door. It's a blackberry vertical case. But it works great.

    An iPod (Photo) works fine also, it even has the headphone jack in the same place

    Day 3, 11:22 am-100%, took off the charger about 9:30 am, checked usual updates, GPS-on,bluetooth -on, Govnah-500/800 screenstate. Started charging last night at 42% don't know if this will have any affect. the rumors about how painful it is run down these batteries (extended life) are true. so far the battery is lasting more than enough for me. I think i will skip charging tonight if i only get down to 40% again. In fact this will be a length-of-time test for this 3rd charging cycle.

    Day 3, 6:25pm-71%, did a massive amount of web surfing and playing angry birds. Battery saving was very noticeable while I've been on wifi all day. At 12pm changed Govnah to 500/1000.

    Day 5,12:03pm-85%, decided to charge last night due to live football app being set to 5min intervals for monday night football, playing H.A.W.X., and angry birds. I've been playing music for 2hrs this morning while working also updating work calendar and checking the usual updates.

    On a 1400? I'll get, allegedly, 50+ hours with NO use and with all but phone turned off. Any regular use drops me to 20-30 some-odd hours of use. Today, I was in and out of poor reception for both voice and data, and trying to use mobile hotspot for about an hour. I burned 25% in about 3 hours.

    With data on and off (half the time) I get between 29 and 34 hours of regular use.
