Someone else in another post had mentioned having reduced battery life after this update as I have been.  Both of us have the extended battery.  Anyone else have the extended battery life and seen improvement or losses of battery life?

After tweaking, I can hold a cahrge all day on the standard. If I have 4g off I will still be at at least 80% with light use, texting, and checkign face book here and there.

Try the app battery calibrator, it improves the battery life and will easily give you all day with no real rush to charge no matter how much you use the device

I have a 3500 mAh extended battery and I have NOT experienced any problems (battery drain) with GB 2.3.6. 

 

Search using the word BATTERY and you will see half-a-dozen GOOD threads on extended batteries and batteries in Charge phones.

I also have the 3500 mAh extended battery and I've experienced major battery drain since the update. The only way I can get through the day is turning off mobile data completely which pretty much defeats the purpose of the phone.

For no reason I can figure out my battery life has improved drastically over the past few days.  I posted more specifics about this in another thread where someone had been offering suggestions.  http://community.vzw.com/t5/DROID-Charge-by-Samsung/Gingerbread-2-3-6-impressions/td-p/739350/highli...

 

Note that I have two posts on that page.  The one where I detail the battery improvement is not at the top, it is #44, further down the page.
