    Define normal battery life? Right after v40, I was testing my Garmin, and sat outside my house for 5-6 hours with WiFi and GPS on and screen on throughout. Also had Opera Mini and eBuddy running and being constantly used Battery had 2 bars left when I went back inside.

    if u want to extend ur battery life to maximum so dim the lcd light with the help of lightctrl app.dont leave apps minimized,dont let any app keep running in background unless its very imp like lightctrl,immediately lock the screen after using the screen,when u charge battery make sure it is fully charged and it shows charging complete..when this happen immediately unplug charger and then charge the battery untill it is fully empty it will give u longer battery life.i do these things and heavy wi-fi use and my phone battery gives me more than 36 hours.

    So it seems to me that there are 2 types of 5800s:
    one that eats 3 mA at idle state and lasts at least 4-5 days,
    and one that eats 30 mA at idle state and lasts at most 2 days.
    Unfortunately I have the latter (yes, I closed all unused applications, 3G switched off, BT switched off, WiFi switched off, GPS switched off, brightness is set to lowest, no calls, no texts, screen lock is on almost all the time).

    But if I buy new battery, will still drain in 1 day as now, or will I get 5 days or so with minimal usage?

    Friends, V40 has done wonders for me on the battery, yesterday I Upgraded to it, actually my phone is only 10 days old, but I was seeing a major battery drain problem since then, I've done everything as wise people suggested here like I closed all unused applications, 3G switched off, BT switched off, WiFi switched off, GPS switched off, brightness is set to lowest, screen lock is on almost all the time, still I was getting only 15 to 18 hours, but as I said after updating yesterday, only 1 bar down in 24 hours, in that I've used WLAN to update the phone to FW40 (downloading, installing and restarting), opened opera, played video, Music, GPS for 30 min and calling and receiving few calls, SMS and until now as I write this its only 1 bar down(its already 24 hours since I charged my phone), So I hope I'll get more than 2 days...
    Phone is 24 hours on
    Background applications running (3) - Taskman, Smart Settings, Call recorder

    Thanks for reading this.......

    my cellphone is nokia 5800 too... used to be its battery life can reach 3 days.. yes.. this possible with because i set my wifi off.. so do bluetooth, then i prefer not using 3G network.. i think video call not really important.. consider almost my friends didn't have 3G cellphone.... just using this device with short message,, calling or take some calling... sometimes browsing.... but if i using some application... it battery will drop until 1 or 2 days.. i think this is just fine..

    Not anymore, that technology is old which was called Ni-Cad Now a days most of the electronic gadgets use Li-ion Batteries which does not suffer from MEMORY EFFECT and our Nokia 5800 also uses the same Li-ion...

    So no probs..
