Hey guys n dolls.

So my typical working day is up at 7am and I'm not back in the house again until 6:20pm.

In this time my battery will go from full charge to nothing around 4:30pm.

This to me is disappointing.

I've enabled all the power widgets. When I'm not using the phone the screen is down to 0 brightness. Sync, Wifi/hspda, bluetooth, GPS are all off if not in use.

I haven't even looked at any games for the phone as they will almost certainly kill the thing before I get through lunch.

My questions to you guys are these:

1) Is there a custom ROM worth loading that is geared towards battery optimization?
2) Is it worth grabbing an external battery charger/extended capacity battery?

Please note: Yes I know there is a thread for the desire but there are 500 result for battery alone and its very difficult to actually find the required information.

you have missed something there, as with very few apps and no wifi you should get over 24 hours switch off the 3g and run on the 2G network if your 3G connection is below 100% this will save lots of battery

there's something not right there, either the battery is dud or there's an app eating all your power. What does your phone say is using all the power?
