Still coming to grips with my AXIM.

From reviews, I expected the battery to last around 12 hours, but I'm lucky to get 3-4.
BT and wireless have been disabled and there are no Running Programs in the background.

Just this afternoon, I unplugged the AXIM from the charger at 100%, switched off the AXIM, went out to the store and 2 hours later switched the AXIM on. It showed 34% battery life.

I'm puzzled as to the reason for the battery to be running down.
Any ideas?

That's pretty quick drain, really. I'd expect 3-4 hours with BT or wi-fi on. I played Aeon of Discovery for this much time on my h4150.

Are you sure BT and wi-fi are off? Also, make sure that Beam reception is off as well, because it uses power waiting for Infrared beams (Start | Settings, change to Connections, tap Beam icon).

Thanks for the suggestion.
Yes, both BT and Wi-Fi are off.
I have checked the settings and "Receive all incoming beams" was disabled.

You may have gotten a faulty battery. It happens. If you can afford to part with it you can send it in to get tested by Dell or just by a new battery.
