    Sort of... I'd have to pay between $90 and $100 for battery for my laptop. They still arent as cheap as i'd like them to be... It'd probably be cheaper for me to replace the individual cells in the battery than buy one from HP...

    Has anyone of you tried to let the sunlight charge your battery? Some says its possible. They say you just have to put your phone battery in the open and the sun will do the job.

    An obvious and I think sometimes overlooked way to prolong battery life: turn your phone off at night.

    That's true but some people would rather maintain their battery in great condition so it will last longer. I find the article very informative and it's just great to know

    If you use memory intensive applications or apps on your device that access the internet / GPS features of your phone - they will drain your phone really quickly. Just make sure when you are not using programs like GPS on your device - you close the application.

    I saw someone mentioned the temp of the battery. The temp has a huge impact. If it is very cold outside your battery is not going to perform optimally.

    If you are in a building where you do not receive good service - your phone is also going to drain quickly. Anytime your phone has to search for towers - the battery is draining faster than if you have full service. I have found that just turning off the 3G features of my Blackberry can even help maintain battery life significantly since my phone is always trying to find the closes 3G tower and a lot of the towers nearby are not 3g.

    I hope this helps... :-)
