    No battery life issues here. Running the second leak with the 1GHz kernel. No theme.

    Using Bugless Beast V0.1 and P3Droid's 1Ghz kernel - battery life is the same as Android 2.1 - if not better. I notice it doesn't hit 80% as fast as it used to, even under heavy use. Still, can't wait for a full Android 2.2 rom.

    Before I got P3's 1Ghz kernel - the phone was hot and drained quick.

    Embarrassing to admit, I used to have a terrible battery life until a friend pointed out that I was using a droid case with a magnetic flap closure (causing the DROID to go into multimedia mode). I recently converted to the Verizon case made exclusively for the DROID with velcro closure and now I get at least 3 days batter life where before it was only several hours.

    Current Phone Model:
    Nokia Lumia Icon
    Stock and ran all the different Kernels....

    In comparison to my current set-up (DarkEdge/2.1) I was experiencing higher temps (15 degree increase under load) and "severe" battery drain.

    I say severe because under my normal usage usage habits I was down to 60% battery in a couple hours.

    I keep a clean version of 2.2 to test kernels but to no avail.

    Some better builds should be floating around in a month or 2.

    I'm on the second 2.2 build. Battery may be a little worse than it was with BBv1. I attribute that to two things.

    First, my Froyo is basically stock, with all the stock apps and apps that open themselves up in the the background. BB removed some of those apps and it also was more aggressive in shutting down resource-using backgroung apps.

    Second, JuiceDefender isn't working on my 2.2.

    For now I'm sticking with my current 2.2 build until the source comes and better, more stable ROMs are available. Can't wait for a better BBFroyo.

    Well coming from BB v1.0 and Bekit's 800 Mhz LV kernel to BB Froyo and p3Droid's 800 Mhz LV kernel my battery life is about the same. The first day was worse but that's because I used the phone like a new toy. Today has been my standard usage pattern and so far the same as it was on BB 1.0. I'll have to run through it for a week or so ti get a better idea if it is better or worse but as of right now it's about the same.

    I'm running the ud beta with p3's 125/1.25 kernel. I have the time w/o signal bug and my battery life is about 1/4 of what it was with ud new era 1.4.5.

    I need some help here, 7hrs of battery life sucks, i used to get ~28hrs

    I don't really know what I did, but the other day I got fantastic battery life. I had bout 20 minutes of phone calls, 15 or so texts, and some market browsing, and I was at 90% still after 12 hours off the charger. With similar usage today, I am at 60% right now after 13 hrs off the charger. I always keep wifi on.
