    Battery

    Please tell me if this is normal or something I should worry about. My battery seems to be OK until I get on the internet through verizon and then the battery level drops like a rock and I get low battery messages. Again it does not happen until I log on to the internet. Anythoughts

    The battery uses a lot more then you think. It is normal if you are using the internet to have the battery drop. What percentage are you at when you start the internet. If your around 60 - 50..it will drop extremely fast!!!

    I have only seen the problem in the evening, probably less than 50% at the time, but it seems to drop to less than 30% instantly.

    That's normal with Li-Ion batteries, they are notoriously inaccurate on the battery monitor, and tend to be very top-heavy. You'll note that the battery charge stays at 100% for a long time before it finally turns green and is full, and drops like a rock once the charge gets below 50%.
