RAZR MAXX – draining the battery for over 5 days!

Motorola says the RAZR MAXX offers a talk time of up to 21.5 continuous hrs and a standby time of up to 380 hours from it’s  3300 mAh Li Ion battery. I am going to drain it !!

 

2/11 @Motorola RAZR MAXX shut down after 135.5 hours on standby with notifications running for Gmail and Tweetdeck. Both 3G/4G radios were turned on. (York only has 3G) The phone received 5 calls that went to VM and the screen was turned on 20 times over the five days to check status. Four days into the test, the phone received 24MB OTA update download over 3G. I don’t doubt that in a best case scenario this phone could hit 380 hours standby. (see the jump for full timeline of discharge)

It took 4 hours to completely charge after 135.5 hour discharge.

Just watching notification LED at this point and not wasting power turning on screen. It beats a constant green beat… a constant, slow heart beat…waiting for the last breath (auto shutdown).
