    the factory reset and firm upgrade has increased the batt life on my phone..... the games and apps running in the background seemed to have been the culprit. I too used to have phone die out within 12hrs.

    I have noticed a charging issue when it is connected to a usb power source.... it take a hell of a long time to charge. never time it but even a full night would not charge it completely.

    Terje, and who ever else has a major batt drain prob, trying downloading 'ZD tool box' and check out the apps running in background.... those were what drain my batt. if you have the same issue you can also confirm by checking from settings --> applications --> Battery Usage and see if its the Android OS and Android System which is draining the batt (they would be on the op of list of batt usage) .... that would be the symptom of ur aps draining the life from your cell.

    Cheers

    Yep, I just had this happen to me for the first time. I fully charged my S2 at night, unplugged it around midnight, phone died 9-10 hours later, and now I don't have my charger on me all day at work I literally haven't touched it except for it waking me up in the morning.
    I'm starting to get sick of this phone cuz I also have camera failing problems where I have to restart the phone more than 50% of the time when I access its camera.
    I still think it's a great phone though.

    My S2 battery was fully charged, I uploaded a photo to facebook, cheked on morning that there were no active data connection, but battery was 20% charged. It took just 7h from 100% to 20%.
    Will make some tests more today.
    Hope you got this resolved.

I can feel the phone is getting warm next to the camera when the battery-emptying starts. Any ideas?
    I have tryed factory reset, upgraded to latest firmware, uninstalled unused programs etc.. but its not fixed it. But the upgrading of firmware made it better, so now its not happens so often ( 2-3 times pr week) Tip?
    Hope this is now resolved for you.

After doing this, my battery doesn't drain anymore. I don't know if this is just some stuff that I thought of, but it really works on my phone.^_^
    If you removed the battery what can happen by pressing the power button?

    I've had my S2 for around 15 months. During the last three months I've experienced overheating and battery drain. I've replaced the battery and the problem is still there. I've disabled WiFi, GPS, and other apps. The only thing I can imagine causing this problem is some app was updated and is causing this problem in the background.

    I had this problem also. Here's what I did to fix it.
    1. Perform factory reset
    2. Turn phone on and let the battery drain completely until the phone will not turn on
    3. Charge phone for 6 hours
    4. Turn on phone and charge again for 2 hours ( I know this sounds redundant but it's needed)
    5. Turn off GPS and WiFi
    6. Unplug phone and let it sit for about 4 hours
    7. Press menu -> Settings -> Battery
    8. Check what shows as the top battery user
    If Screen is top user then reduce screen brightness to the lowest comfortable level
    If Android OS is top user check what applications are running in the background and stop any you don't need
