I'd like to add my voice to this lot, I've been getting in the order of 8-12
hours of battery life with minimal conversation or testing and everything
switched to off. I even looked to see if there was a higher capacity battery
available (there isn't).

It seems to be a little better with up to date Om2008.08, but not a hell of
a lot.

Any tips on diagnostics to run?
