There are also a few settings you can tweak as well. I'll grab the post that AccidentalPost made on restoring a phone as new. It has some helpful tips in there.

I don't care what the device is (Android, Apple or BlackBerry), once I can get battery service from 06:00 in the morning when I leave the house, till I get back, around 18:30...
If I can do that, and not having to charge during the day, and still use my device moderately, I'd be happy.
Based on the stats I've been posting, I'm what? HAPPY

When I took that pic I was actually surprised. Usually its around half that, not quite sure what exactly I was using my phone for usage wise since I was just sent about 4 texts and checked a couple emails last night. Must have had something running in the background but usually my battery is hovering around 25-40% after work (10 hour shift) and I don't use my phone at all then since I am around water all the time.

Took the plunge and used Pink's guide from Crackberry to restore my phone as new... haven't drained the battery fully yet, but I figured at this point my game data and texts aren't as important as having a good battery. Will see... If it's not a big enough increase to justify I can always restore my backup from today.
EDIT: For those who went this route, did you see an immediate improvement before fully discharging or did you see results only after you went through a full cycle. I just restored and it seems my battery is draining faster than it did before I restored. Was just wondering if this is normal and it'll straighten itself out after calibrating or if I should just go back to my backup...

As for right after the restore process and my battery life- it's been almost 2mths for me and I don't really remember how it went after I did the restore. I can tell you that I did let the battery drain completely after doing the restore, and I think with just that one discharge cycle is when I saw the improvement. I don't recall if I saw the improvement right off the bat.
