    How do you know you're at 75% anyway?
    I'm just going by what the battery left widget is telling me, don't know how accurate it is. And I didn't check the system to see what it reports...
    OK, I'm not calling you out - was just curious.

    Typically my phone's battery life has never been great. I get like 16-18 hours - this ROM runs very cool, so I'm happy

    yeah i usually got around 26-27 hrs, but now i dont think the battery life is a great as i initially thought, its been about 9 hrs and its reporting 50%, so definitely a drop in battery. Of course, I do have a 1.2 kernel and have all the animations etc set to fastest blah blah. So maybe flashing a lower kernel will bring back the life I need.

    So you'd be dead after 18 hours, more or less. This is assuming you use your phone routinely during that period. The entire period.

    Do you sleep? How does one *need* more than 10-12 hours of uptime? Plug it in when you sleep.

    I get MAYBE 8-9 hours to 5-10% battery, which is much worse than you (running a lot less, by the sounds of it). No idea why I'm huurting so much but be thankful.

    I'll get 18 hrs more or less if I use my phone exactly the same way as I did today. Obviously, I don't have the exact same usage every day. I'm on the road alot, on the phone alot, so I need it to be working if I have a day where I'm on the phone 3 hrs as opposed to 1 and a half. Or if I text some days as opposed to today where I barely texted. Obviously, I can plug in my phone when I go to sleep, that wasn't an issue. But 18 hrs on a day where I barely used my phone is not cutting it for me, when I know that I use it far more than that on a daily basis.
