TP Battery life...

Well I've had my TP for about 5 days now and I've noticed that the battery life is pretty horrible. I've been draining my battery all the way and then placing it on the charger since day one.
Example: Unplugged my phone from the charger at 3:00pm today. Talked on it for no more than 4 min total. Surfed on the web for no more than 15 min. Turn auto update Weather off, sync mail every 15, manually sync my Exchange mail and never have a program running under the task manager. It's 1am now and my battery is at 25%.

I can't wait till Seidio has a better battery for this...

Their extended battery was great for my 6900.

What's everyone doing to keep their battery life up?

Also, does anyone know how Verizon is getting the specs on the battery?
* Usage Time: Up 250 minutes OR
* Standby Time: Up to 350 hours

Re: TP Battery life...

Re: TP Battery life...

I've already sent my VZW branded TP back to them today but yes, the battery life in mine was beyond crap as well. I could not use it a full day while I owned it for 4 days. By 2 or 3 in the afternoon it was dead. Wish I could help but I gave it back to them.
