    Battery life

    I'm running SS 5.2 and at first battery life seemed awesome. Then I realized when my phone reads 50 % battery it'll drop to 20% in a flash. Is it just me?

    Yep, same here. However, I did use one kernel that went to 40% before it next jumped to 20%.

    Having the same issues here. No clue why it isn't registering the correct battery life remaining.

    I've had the same issue since 5.2. Overall my battery life has been very poor, not lasting more than a day even with minimal use (will auto power off before the end of the day). Any ideas? I haven't tried reinstalling 5.2 yet...maybe I'll try that after work today.

    Well, truth is my battery life is fantastic even with the possibility its not reporting with accuracy. I'm sure that you've covered the basics about eeking out the greatest amount of battery you can but good advice would be to swap out the kernel.

    Try a kernel or two and compare. Keep your tests controlled (duplicate as best you can, your level of usage) and see what you can get for battery life.

    I'm on Chevys LV 1.1ghz running at 1.1ghz/125mhz (max/min); this was the biggest gain for me after trying all the LVs and ULVs. I also tried several of the rMod kerns on Smartmod but found Chevys longer lasting.

    However, big note here, I did notice the drop in battery life on all of the kernels I used.

    I've been running 5.2 for a week. This is the first time I've tried a Chevy rom. So far I'm impressed! Its fast and stable. As to battery life, I'm currently at 50 hrs 11min and 5 sec on a single charge with normal use. Haven't seen 2 + days of battery on my phone ever. Even when I was tweaking my own custom slots and voltages, performance wasnt this good. Well done sir!

    When I first flashed SS 5.2 the battery was great but I noticed a few days later it drops from 60% to 40% instantly. can someone look into this? I tried mods that comes with the ROM but its remains the same. maybe can someone recommend a good kernel?

    I've been running it since it came out, and I've never seen this behavior. Although I rarely get below 50% by the end of the day, I have been down that low and not seen the sudden drops.

    Are you guys resetting the battery stats when you switch kernels? I'm in an area I can't access my phone from, but do a search on "battery statistics" and the instructions should be pretty easy to find.
