    mine is ~4.1V and 85-100mA at home (hspa+ and connected to wifi)

    bt off, 2 push email accounts, a handful of live tiles going.

    i'm still getting a day of usage (12-18hrs) out of it with battery to spare.

    hspa+ good to excellent reception around home and LTE moderate to good reception around work.

    It's been another hour...down from 80% to 73% on light use. I think I am going to turn BT off to see if that helps

    It has been about another hour and this time I had BT off. I am at 67% battery now that is still 6% an hour doing nothing on the phone...so I don't think it is BT.

    My battery life has been great. I've been off the charger since 7 am this morning with moderate usage I guess. About an hour and a half worth of music. Streamed a few CNN vids, surfed the net on and off, took a few pics, sent attachments, got updates on live tiles all day, and a few text messages. Its now almost 6pm and I'm at 30 percent left. Sounds good to me. Especially being 4g LTE. On my HTC rezound on Verizon's LTE network I was lucky to get 9 or 10 hours. I'm satisfied.

    My Androids would have been long dead by now.

    Voltage: 3.982V
    Current: 89-112mA with spikes to 130mA when I touch the screen to keep it awake.

    Wow, I get spikes over 300 mA when I touch the screen to keep it awake :-/. At full rest/stabilization its at 102-140 mA. Never, ever below that :(

    Those who are getting poor battery life, what is your Brightness level setting? Automatic or Manual?

    Medium but I have tried auto and it makes no difference. My phone seems to drain when not in use.

    I have not plugged it in since. I'm only down to 75%. When I touch the screen, I cannot get it to spike above 200mA even with multiple fingers.

    Mine must have been inspected by the QA guy that loves his job.

    I am convinced that my Lumia drains extremely quickly when on the MicroCell. Great battery life when away from the MicroCell. Anyone else make that correlation?

    This tweetwp7 guy looks like a big troll . He refuses to acknowledge the fact that he might have a defective piece . He just criticizes nokia lumia 900 battery in all his posts . It looks like someone is trying to spread a rumour that lumia 900 has some serious battery issues ( to impress whichever company is paying him )

    @Kaiser...no just no. I tried to replace my device and no store near me and the warranty depart says it is 2 weeks back ordered so I had tried. Also tons of other people are having problems too. If your phone works good, then your one of the lucky ones. Oh by the way Kaiser I am well respected in the WP7 community and have been running a WP7 fan site for months now, so why would I get paid to talk crap about Nokia when I obviously have a passion for the phone to run a website dedicated to it???

    My battery life is not what I expected either...I have a microcell and have read that it will sometimes kill the phone battery.

    As for my phone..
    I'm syncing about 10 email addresses hourly.
    Have 3 background apps running on the live tiles...weather and 2 news tiles.
    A bunch of other live tiles are flipping constantly with info
    To top this off I am having a tough time just putting the phone down...I enjoy using it.

    I have found that it is lasting just about the same amount of time as my Skyrocket with about the same use...about 7-8 hours ....I expected more but this doesn't surprise me all that much. Battery life is always an issue with these things....im used to it.

    I do believe the microcell connection is a big factor.

    Microcells have extreme consequences with battery life. Notable examples discussed in the AT&T forums are:
    Samsung Focus
    Samsung Captivate
    iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 4
    iPhone 4S
    Nokia
    LG (all models, I think)



    It's a problem with the Microcell that AT&T refuses to deal with.

    I've read differering opinions about why the Microcell is a battery hog....is there a definitive answer as to why its doing this?....just curious.

    guys what the hours your Lumia 900 tells when you take the phone out of the charger in the morning with 100% battery remaining ? that will tell the battery health with all connections turned off except voice !!!!
