I just got my Razr a few days ago. First thing I did after updating to ICS was to install Juice Defender and turn off 4G. After 17 hours mine sits at 40%. That'w with moderate use. Today I am leaving 4g enabled to see what, if any, difference it makes. I just have JD set to shut off the data radios when the screen is off and sync email every 15 minutes. This is the standard Razr, by the way not the Max.
OK, I haven't read thru the whole thread, but, we've been addressing this same issue/set in the House of Bionic (FXZing and ICS leak flashing) thread to some degree. The way we typically address it is to flash the leak, and immediately FDR and clear cache, then let playstore restore your apps and restore data only from rom toolbox pro (tibu just doesn't seem to play 100% nice with ICS yet). After you finish your restore run the phone until it dies and then let it charge in power off charge mode to 100% to recalibrate. I personally use two smart actions, since I'm not close to reliable wifi while communting and at work I use rule wifi weekday (wifi off 7a to 7p M-F) and rule worknight (kills backgroiund data from 12:00a to 6:00a Sun-Thurs). With a standard bionic battery I leave my house at about 6:20a stream, surf, and text/email about 5 hrs between my train ride and breaks and lunch at work, do not charge all day long, and get home at 6:55p without redzoning my battery. OCed to 1266 Mhz CPU and 384 GPU on GB with both cores active I had to charge as soon as I got to work and after lunch to make sure I had enough battery to get home on. I in fact have only used my P893 once in the time I've been running ICS (since mid June-ish when 2231/2233 leaked, have been running 232 since hours from the time it leaked around 7-1. There's no reason razr's shouldn't see the same benefit from the same process. Oh, and underclock to 1Ghz is not even noticeable unless you're benchmarking (still 2750+ quadrant on the on demand governor) and also saves battery life noticeably. Underclocking is easy as pie with rom toolbox (free or pro), you just swipe left to performance settings (the page is on right and you finger swipe left, is that a right or left swipe?), go to "cpu sliders" and set the max to 1000 Mhz, leave the minimum as is and check "set on boot" and select the "on demand" governor.

Except, don't drain your battery till it dies if you want your phone to Remain functional. Only go down to the "connect to your charger warning" (10%) on ics. Then power down and charge to 100%Originally Posted by altspeed
