Good to see an old name, ken_jennings.
I have a droidx and have bought 2 extra big batteries for the phone and go through them fast.
I just don't think about my edge and battery life. It really goes a while without charging compared to my droidx.
The only thing I have found that might do what the edge does is the notion adam. In fact, once my edge dies, the notion Adam may be my choice.. if it is 2nd generation.
