How long IS the battery suppose to last?
Hey I just got an iphone 2g last week. Played around with 2.0.2 JB and never really tested out the battery since I was always messing around so it was plugged in.
Took iphone finally into the real world today. I used it a bit last night, maybe 1 hour of browsing etc, and maybe 4 other hours on iPod feature (I guess the counter in the phone counts ipod usage as general usage too?)
And today I probably played a couple minutes of spore and monkey ball to show my friends. Made 2 or 3 short calls, texted 4 messages
When I got home the battery is red, after one day of use.
Is this typical? Or is this battery is totally abnormal? According to the guy he had it for 6 month or so I think, so the battery shouldn't be totally screwed up yet.
Anyway my conception is that the battery should be slightly longer... you know, last a couple days with general usage from time to time.

That's from apple's site. Real world seems to take more than a toll on the battery than the specs say, but in the end it's all about what you use it for and how long.

I recently got the iHome clock radio and I put my iPhone into that every night to listen to music and it charges... so I haven't had to worry about it dying on me.
Before though, while using it to text, talk, internet and iPod it would last me a good few days... that's with the 2G.
I haven't seen any huge difference with the 3G battery life. The only problem I would have is it randomly losing most of it's charge within 45 minutes or so.

Yes, that's normal.
With normal 'moderate' use my phone generally gets to 17-18 hours (with 4-5 hours of "use" being logged).
Those numbers only happened when I was experimenting, though, and not charging on purpose. Since then I:
* Always plug it in while in my car.
* Always plug it in while I'm in bed.
Just doing that keeps me good.

Some say that you should keep the charge on a Li-Ion battery as high as possible at all times. Just keep recharging and recharging and the battery will live longer.
Others say that you will kill the battery quicker if you keep putting the device on recharge more frequently than necessary. The reason for that is that every time you plug it in, you initiate a new recharge cycle, and the batteries only have a few thousand recharge cycles in them. In other words it's possible to run down a battery you've barely used, for example in a laptop, if you keep plugging and unplugging the charger.

I too just got a 1st gen iphone and have noticed the battery isn't great. One thing I did notice though was switching off the data fetching to manual has really helped. I let mine go for about a day and a half of mixed use and the battery is needing a charge, not too bad in my opinion. I too have been letting it drain down then do a full recharge at night.
