    Battery Life V1

    So how's everyone's battery life in BB V1? This is my first full day with it, so I'm still in test mode, but seems pretty decent so far. Almost 7 hours and I'm at 75%. Anyone have a full day with it yet, and can share how long their battery lasts and what settings they're using. I'm running 1.2 GHz kernel..

    Question on everyones mind is what have you done with your phone during those 7 hours?
    OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)

    LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    yea kinda hard to compare battery lives straight up when you give no indication whatsoever as to what you did/didnt do during those hours

    Phone calls mostly...not any texting, and a little bit of web surfing. But about an hour to hour and a half of calls.

    Im sorry but I have been out of the loop and no mean to hijack thread, but what happened to the BD forum?

    Also, I agree that the battery life for BB is much better than the UD.

    No animations, brightness set to lowest, no live wallpapers (if they're even on it), and nothing that really soaks up battery life.

    Throughout the day, I occasionally text and stream music for maybe 15 minutes out of each hour. 30 second screen timeout.

    In an 8 hour work day, I go from 100 to ~10% if I don't use my charger at all at work.

    It isn't a PROBLEM to do that, but it is shorter that most people seem to report. Time without a signal is also 0-5%.

    Not sure what is soaking up my battery. I use Hi Aim/Bluetooth (but turn it off when I'm not streaming). I've heard mixed things about Hi Aim using excessive amounts of battery. If this is true, any recommendations for a more battery-friendly IM program?

    My top 4 after 2 hours unplugged:

    1. Display (39%, no brainer)
    2. Android system - 26% (this one might be alarming...)
    3. Phone idle - 9%
    4. Cell standby - 8% (2% time without signal)

    Oh, using the P3Kit 1.0 ghz kernel included with the ROM on ROM Manager. I *do* still insist on using SetCPU in order to actually see a visual report on the OC/profiles being used, but it's ~1% in my battery usage.

    If I am on the phone for an hour and a half, no matter WHAT ROM I'm using, I'd safely say after 7 hours I'd be at 50%.

    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...
