Battery life

I've been using the Droid Pro for about 2 1/2 weeks now, and constantly struggle with battery life.

I am literally charging the phone twice a day, and even on the battery profile on "Maximum battery saver", I get at most 24 hours even mostly on standby. I've tried TasKiller and have removed pretty much all widgets, but improvement is only moderate.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this the best I could ever expect?

I have the same problem, and I've had my Pro for over a month. Everything I have read states the same. They say the extended battry adds 20-35%, but for an xtra $50, I want to make sure its worth it before I buy it.

Bought the extended battery a few weeks ago. Must say, it helps tremendously; can almost make it thru the day with moderate use. I still try to charge it once a day (as compared to 2-3 times), and that definitely gets me thru. Well worth the money...

Gingerbread Update (Official) definitely improves battery life and lowers heat emission of the phone. It doesn't run hot all the time anymore for me.

I've been using my Droid Pro for almost a year. I use the standard battery and get pretty good battery life, but I had to make one change. The phone has three profiles, home, work and weekend. The profiles have no value to me, but they do cause a problem, some apps running in more than one profile are sucking battery life out of the phone. I trash canned everything in the work and weekend profiles, and I simply work out of the home profile. My battery lasts all day, especially if I put it on the car charger when I'm driving around.
