Poor battery

I'm wondering if anyone else experiencing poor battery life. I charged my telephone to full during the night and took it off the charger this morning. It's now almost 4 o'clock and the battery is empty. Thats really terrible! I did not do anything special :S

Mine's started doing the same, haven't changed any settings and I had been getting 4 days, now not even a day!

Have any of you guys, experiencing poor battery life, installed new themes?
I know it sounds daft but if I use a third party theme, battery life is less than one day; if I use one of the bundled themes, I get two days! It does look as though the phone is running two copies of the desk top, when backing out from menu's I see the desktop which after a second moves away revealing another, identical desktop. Any thoughts?

my battery is ok,when im at work its out of pocket in the cab but when not at work its in my pocket and sometimes battery goes down real quick,i think the camera button is culprit only a real sensitive button and if it keeps getting pressed in pocket the screen light is always on.update might sort this as n95 only lit up with top power button pressed.

Reset mine to factory defaults and set up 'internet' or 'wan' connections (just messaging) and the battery seems OK so far - 3 days low/minimal usage.
Have also bought a replacement battery to try, charging it just now so will see how it goes tomorrow.

It seems odd.. i had a theme on today and battery lasted about 7 hours.. it had dropped 3 bar within the first 2 hours of a full charge!

Ive changed back to default theme, will see how that gets on tomorrow

Hi cally78,
I thought it was the camera button at first, so made a point of keeping it out of pockets and case; no difference. I'm as sure as I can be, that its down to the theme, just don't understand why.

I noticed an improvement in my battery life when I reverted back to the default theme. What theme was it you tried?

I've tried several themes from mobile9.com, including a couple that I ran on my N93 without issue. Very strange!!!

For some reason my battery now lasts about 3 days with some use of GPS/Wifi/HSDPA, calling, texting and making fotos etc.

Well its lunchtime after being off-charge for about 4 hours and battery is still reading full.. only change was going back to the default theme.... same time yesterday would have seen over half the battery gone!

I was using some themes from Pizero that are classed as FP2 compatible.

Wow, does themes have that much of an effect? Must be buggy themes...
