Even though there are already 25 battery tips for the HTC EVO (the original 20 plus 5 more) on this site and I've written many other battery-related posts, battery life is still a very hot topic among G&E readers. In the comments section of articles that usually have nothing to do with the battery, for example, it isn't uncommon to see the conversation turning away from the post topic and toward battery life.
So I think it's time to formally ask the question everyone is already answering and let you guys sound off in the comments.
How's the battery life on your HTC EVO?
Let us know how you use your phone, approximately how many hours you go between charges, which battery tips from G&E (if any) you've applied, and whether you've got any additional tricks up your sleeve to get the EVO to last longer.
I'm still using the Seidio 1750mAh extended slim battery and have no complaints. I haven't had time to do any controlled drain tests with the Seidio and stock batteries yet (I have a 7-month-old baby who stays home with me while I run 3 websites), so I don't want to say anything prematurely about performance. Based on my day-to-day use, however, which varies from moderate to very light usage on some days, I do know that the extended battery isn't doing any worse than the stock one.
I've never gotten less than 20 hours of runtime (3G and WiFi always on) and usually get about 36 hours on an average day. The usage graph you see above is from the past two days, which I've spent working on a new website about another device, meaning the EVO was barely used.
BatteryBoss has some worrying information about the actual capacity of Seidio batteries being less than their stated capacities, but I haven't experienced anything personally that would confirm or deny these findings.
What kind of battery life are you getting?
