    I drop from 90% to 15% by just watching YouTube on ulv 1 ghz to 350 mhz in about 3 hours . And on standby in school ill drop from full to 60 % on ulv. 800 to 350 mHz. From 7am to 2 pm. This seems sort of ridiculous. Any help?

    So really, you have been tinkering around with the voltages and clock speeds and basing your opinion off of your tinkering around and trying to apply it to Rubix 1.0 as a whole???

    Seriously, save it pal. Rubix 1.0 has great battery life. I along with many other users can attest to that. Try putting all your OC and voltage setting back to stock and see what happens. :icon_ banana:

    Something has to be running in the background. I think you have at least 1 offending application or widget killing your battery.

    The user is new and has two negative threads about Rubix so I would say it is safe to say they are another competing dev in disguise.

    I bet money it is that Matt4942 or whatever his name is. The one who got booted from Team Defuse and is royally upset.

    I can assure you im not Matt 4942. I have two threads about problems I'm having with rubix. So are you saying that I can't post issues?

    And if I didn't like rubix I wouldent post threads about issues . I would just use ape x or fission or tranquility (joke Rom) .

    Now for my thread about the camera problem is probley just a bug that I'm only experiencing, I just wanted to make sure it wasent a wide spread problem with a fix or something.. anyway please don't say I'm a angry dev because I post 2 issues, we all know rubix is the best aosp dx Rom.

    Does anyone think a reflash would be a good choice

    Try the app Watchdog, it will let you know if you have a runaway/battery eating app.

    I had the same issue with Rubix... horrible battery life for me. I couldn't go longer than 11 hours with medium usage. I uninstalled all of my third party apps, no overclocking or task managers, and the problem persisted. It also took over 5 hours to fully charge while stock took only 2.5 to 3 hours. I am back to stock (minus some bloat) and am currently at 30 hours and still at 20%. Battery life is fantastic.

    Rubix was the fastest and most stable of any ROM I had tried but the battery issue just killed it for me. I wish I knew what was going on because I would love to switch back.

    Well it turns out its completely phone specific, but I'd have to say 11 hours for a smart phone is pretty damn good.. I've never had more than 14 hours out of a droid phone EVER. My original droid or my droid x

    Interesting... battery life on this droid x has been exceptional from day one. I was very surprised when it ran longer than the Droid Eris.

    On a side note, I cannot apply any OC or voltage to my droid x whatsoever. Any adjustment over 1ghz will put it into turtle mode and any low voltage adjustments are unstable. I did get my device on day 1. I am starting to wonder if there is something different about these day 1 devices.

    I'm happy to see that someone else is having the same issue. I even have the issue with the new version . Rubix is the fastest and stablest but I can't live with ****ty battery life
