The fastest way to drain your mobile battery

I burned through two batteries with my HTC Touch Diamond within about 12 hours while I was at my friend's place. The second battery was a spare that I keep in my wallet. I browsed the Web a little but didn't make any calls.

There is one thing that can rapidly drain the battery of your mobile which you don't hear about: poor network coverage. To overcome the path loss due to factors such as distance or obstructions, the phone has to ramp up the transmitter power output to improve the strength of the signal that reaches the mobile station.
