    kernels - battery life with Kangerade

    Just wondering what kernels you all are having luck with and what settings you are using?

    I've tried quite a few and while I have a couple which I like the speed, none of them offer me much in the way of battery life.

    I have been testing by charging to full and then going to bed -checking battery use when i wake up. One odd thing is that i have been sleeping for 7 some hours and the device is reporting its been unplugged for only 3. I am at 50% battery left after it being clocked to 250 while i sleep with no wifi/gps/sync running. Battery use shows cell standby and android system to be the power eaters.


    Any ideas?

    I'm in the same boat. The kernel I have now is the smoothest one I've used with this ROM and rarely heats up, but one with great battery life is something hard to find. I'm thinking its the ROM, though I'm not sure.

    So far I've tried a bunch of the Chevy Ultra Low Voltage kernels and most of the P3 low voltage. Now I'm trying one of the Chevy low (not ulv) and we'll see how it acts.

    Well, I tried 4 different JDLFG kernels and three have been locking up the phone on me. Or causing it to reboot. One of them just reports 0 battery and reboots.

    Guess my droid does not like em. lol

    I'm running the new Kangerade 5.0.9 but every time I try to install a new kernel it stays at the stock 800mhz. Any ideas what I can do?

    Wow 50% after 7 hours of sleep??

    I use P3's 1.2 GHZ clocked at 250-1000. It is clocked at 250min and 250max while in sleep mode, and after about 7-8 hours of sleep it is either at 100% or 90%. This is with my regular apps pulling data and recieving a few emails, and the led blinks for a good 5-6 hours a night since I tend to get a lot of emails at like 2am??

    Yep. Not sure whats doing it. My situation sounds similar to yours in that, I've got it set to 250/250 while the screen is off. I get notifications while I am asleep and my LED blinks all night long tooo.
