    Android 2.2 battery life problems?

    I installed froyo on my MOTO droid. with red rum theme. I use overclock widget and overclock my droid to about 500 at most. sometimes 700 if i need too.

    but I notice my phone battery dies VEEERY quickly. what's the biggest probable cause for this?? i dont think froyo its self is causing it, nor the theme ?? im assuming it's the overclocking?? am i right? is there something i can do to save battery life?

    i looked for extended life batteries but they make the droid so big it'd be highly annoying to carry around. can somebody help me?

    edit: also with the new froyo i added the 'new radio fix'

    My experience as well.....

    2.2 is not a very good daily driver unless you can stay plugged in.

    Thats why I don't use it anymore.

    I'll wait for some better builds.

    I've had just about the same battery life. I'm running black ice with a 1k kernel and have no problems.

    Try a different setup?
    I had a nice signature, but the mean ate it.

    speaking of kernel. could THAT be causing it? I saw a site with all these different kernels and just downloaded the top file. could i change my kernel to one that'd work perfectly for my droid, while being more energy efficient?

    Battery life for me is pretty terrible as well. The current kernals out there heat my droid up extremely quick, too. BUT gotta keep up with the most current stuff so I'll have to deal with it for now.... debating whether to try BB..... so tired of flashing new roms but so addicted!

    Yes kernels effect how it runs. If it's not made for the version and you got it to boot up somehow, you are lucky.

    I am using p3 1ghz kernel, I said chaos rom earlier, but it's just the theme actually.

    My battery life seems better with Bugless Beast for Froyo.

    With the first leaked Froyo, I would unplug my phone at 7 A.M. and it would be at 20% by 11P.M.

    Now it will only get down to 60% by 11P.M.; a dramatic increase in battery life.
