    I recently bought a Motorola S10 headset and it seems like my Touch battery life is absolutely horrible! I did not record the exact time but I would have to say I am getting about a solid hour, perhaps a bit more, of use before the battery is dead. I noticed when BT is on it is always seems to be in discoverable mode and some other forum posts noted that it is always on and there is no way to turn off discoverable mode. Wifi is off, the brightness is low (around 15-20% from the lowest setting) and I have tried turning off the screen but no luck seeing and increase in battery life. Btw it is model MB528LL and software v3.0(7A341).

    Is there anything else I can do to increase battery life or is this normal and I'll have to recharge every hour+?

    turn off everything exempt the thing that you need (i massuming its just bluetooth in this case) so wifi, location settings etc. and also set to check for mail manually and turn the brightness down.
