    Are you using a standalone charger or charging off the USB port of a computer?

    Try swapping the cable if you have another cable. Also try using the standalone charger instead of the usb port of the computer.

    I would not be so quick to void your warranty.

    If the problem started with updating to 3.1.2 then it could be a software problem also. Apple is supposedly investigating some battery life problems with 3.1.x

    Also, as no 3GS is more than a year old, you could get it replaced under warranty. The earlier you do this, the more chance you have of getting a 3GS replacement that does not have the new bootrom which allows only tethered jailbreaking.

    That is a good idea, it may take a full discharge and recharge to recalibrate the battery. Try and get the iPhone to the point where it shuts down and displays the connect to power symbol then recharge it again fully before using it again.

    Also, there are some new powerstrips that can monitor the load on each outlet and shutdown when the load drops to nearly nothing. The idea behind this is to save power and be more green. You don't have one of these do you?

    The battery and the chip inside the iPhone that controls the battery save information about how much capacity the battery has. This can change due to normal usage, the battery slowly wearing out etc. The recommendation from Apple is "Be sure to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down)." the main reason for this is to keep the battery capacity properly calibrated so that the charging routines can charge the battery properly to avoid overcharging and damaging the battery.

    See this page Apple - Batteries - iPhone for more details on Apple's recommended practices for the iPhone battery.

    As for fully charged.. The way to tell if your iPhone battery is fully charged is that the badge on the battery icon in the upper right of the screen changes from lightning bolt (charging) to electrical plug (charged, running on mains power).

    You can also go to settings, general, usage and look at time since last full charge, if it is blank and has the text "usage times will be shown after iPhone is fully charged" then your iPhone is still charging.

    ok... i have fully discharged and fully charged iphone, but the problem still presists. every one hour i got -3% on stand by mode...i have started to think that this is internal battery problem. anyway i have tried 2 wall chagers and 3 usb cables, whith all of them i got the same poor battery life.

    maby it is the time to get new battery?
