    No charger. Anywhere. I have about an hour commute on a train in front of me yet only about a 5% battery life left on my iPhone.

    Can't watch a video (been watching, "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" and, "Brotherhood" lately...) obviously, and don't know if there is enough juice to even listen to music during that time.

    Anyone have experience with the last 5% of their battery life? Will it last a bit longer than I suspect? Take into consideration my phone really has no battery issues and is running 'normal' (well, as normal as normal can be with these things).

    I remember months ago reading as I was lurking on these forums someone stating the last 10% of battery life lasts longer than the first 10% goes.

    (Fingers crossed.)

    get off the internet!!

    turn the screen brightness way down, listen to music and pray. Youll get 15-20 minutes IF you're lucky

    Just shut it off, and wait until you get home.

    Yep, might as well turn it off. Turn it on to make a call or do something quick, but turn it right back off.

    Get a battery pack if you need the extra juice.

    Whenever my 3G is at 5%, I always turn it off for around 5 minutes and turn it back on. It mysteriously goes back up to 7% to 12%. What I do with that spare battery is that I go on Airplane Mode, lower the brightness all the way down, and make sure I don't use it unless it's an emergency.
