Just curious what you are seeing under "Time without a signal %" which you find under Settings - About phone - Battery - Battery Use - Cell standby.

I have a Hero that is rooted and running 2.1 and showing 50%.

Thanks

31% after leaving the phone plugged in an not touching it overnight. Up time 68:49:32 and Awake time 16:41:50 if you need that too, as there's been issues of 100% awake time as well. Of course I've done the airplane trick before, and after a restart, it was back to 100%. Then found out that Meebo was the cause, as it was keeping the phone awake connected to all my IM accounts. Turned it off, and no more 100% awake time, and no more problems.

So i have found one solution thanks to a thread over at another site....

Seems as if there is some sort of bug with with Cell standby that causes the phone to lose signal which in turns just kills the battery. To verify that your set has the problem, check the Cell standby info in the Battery Use info. If the Time without a signal is higher than 0% (50% seems to be the norm) than you have a problem.

One solution, at the moment, is to follow these steps:

1. Plug in phone charger

2. Put phone in Airplane mode

3. Put phone to sleep for a minute

4. Turn off airplane mode

5. Unplug phone

I can confirm that this works and my Time without a signal is at 0% for over 9 hours now. The battery life is MUCH better and the phone didn't die on me last night while i was sleeping.

I also just figured this out yesterday afternoon for my phone. Was going to post it this morning. Thanks.

I am at 15% after airplane trick...My awake time is 78 hrs and some change so i think its pretty accurate. let the phone battery drain down and then put into airplane mode. Do a full charge and restart phone...then turn airplane mode off.
