    I've got a brand new Lumua Icon. I let it charge fully, let it run down to 5% and then full charge over night. I decided to give it a heavy use rest...here's what I did:

    Let XBOX Music populate my entire music collection in the app (about 13,000+ songs)
    Play Netflix for about 20 minutes.
    Heavy browsing and RSS feeds use.
    Playing Music. For a while via Bluetooth and then via a audio cable.
    Used Cortana a time or two.
    Browsed Socl and Facebook.
    Downloaded A few Albums from the cloud to the phone. \
    Mostly Wi-Fi Use.

    Did this off and on for about 4 hours and it is down to 12% as I right this.

    Not sure if this is normal drain for such heavy use or not.

    Thoughts?

    Let your icon battery calibrate. You have purchased a new phone , lithium battery need some charges before it could show good result. My Lumia 920 was pathetic for first few weeks but now its 👌

    How do you calibrate? Full change, full run out a few times? Or another method?

    I don't think do calibrate battery until its death is good to do. Just use it normally and charge it 2-3 times with airplane mode on so the OS will good to know your battery.

    Sounds good...with my job, I normally need to keep a decent charge on it, so I normally charge overnight and then again at lunch, even if it is at 70% or so at lunch. Is that OK?

    Its ok to charge your battery at 70%. Icons battery has, I believe, 1000 cycles.

    This is wrong lithium batteries do not need "conditioning".

    Just over four hours is fine with heavy use.

    Heck, I can kill my fully charged battery in 4 hours with whatsapp only. lol

    That's about right. I went from 100 down to under 20 in about that amount of time. I took over 130 photos and shot 3 videos at the zoo and was sending via MMS and uploading to Facebook a lot. Whenever I'm home or driving, it's on a charging plate or in my CR-200 car dock charging.

    And 1000 charges means 1000 full discharge and recharge cycles; not topping off or setting it on the charger once in a while.

    Are we talking about a smart phone or a laptop? lol. Some people are just hard core on electronics but I have to say, that is one good stress test ya got there but you need to get an iphone and a gs4 to see how they survive in the same conditions. I can tell you up front, the Iphone 5 would have trouble in those conditions. I had always heard how stellar the battery was on the iphone and was really surprised how quickly it drains with moderate use.

    Li-ion battery doesn't have memory, it doesn't learn -some say discharge fully once a month ? I keep mine charged pretty much all the time. Sometimes I don't plug it in while driving and it will drop to 18-25%, it won't harm it or help it. I want it charged as much as possible so when I'm not able to charge it, it's still got a lot of time left.

    I've had my Icon for 3 days now and I have to say the battery life is the one thing that concerns me. I get about 5 hours of regular use (music, browsing, WP Central app :)). When it's sitting unused it seems to be ok (in the graph below I was sleeping from 11 PM to 6 AM), but any actual use really seems to bring the battery down right away. Is this normal? I am running 8.1.

    When I got my LUmia 928, the battery life wasn't very good initially. But after I think 3 weeks of usage, I began to get super battery life. I think it just needs some time. I never drained my battery either. Just regular usage.

    I thought heavy use would be gaming, but if doing those things took it down that much you probably wouldn't get more than 2 hours of intensive graphic gaming(asphalt 8 or FIFA 14)

    I don't know about gaming, but Netflix barely touched my battery. I watched an episode of Dexter and I noticed no heat and battery was only down a few percent it seemed. Texting seems much worse. Kinda weird.

    The whole thing about "letting your battery calibrate" and "battery memory" is a myth...at least with lithium ion batteries. That only applies to nickel ion batteries.

    Thank you sir! It's a huge misconception. The only thing that will really hurt a lithium ion battery is if you let it run down to 0% all the time or if you let it sit there on the charger while fully charged all the time.

    It's not even an official OS yet so I wouldn't be too worried. However, 8 hours is what I get on my Z10 if I'm lucky ;) hahah

    Nokia has taken care of it being on the charger after it's charged, it stops charging. You can easily "see" this with the wireless charging plate, when the plate light turns off it's not only fully charged but it has stopped receiving a charge. It's a little harder to see with the USB wall charger because there isn't a light but once fully charged it stops charging. I leave in on the charging plate or regular wall charger overnight (7-8 hrs.) and I don't set my alarm to wake me up in 3-4 to remove it, it stops charging on it's on when it reaches 100%. So that too is also a myth at least with phones in the last few years -so not to worry about that either.

    Are all phones like that now? I know at least my BlackBerry does as well. I can't speak for iPhones or Android phones however. I realize that is the case in this situation at least, but I was just speaking about lithium ion batteries in general.
