    Now I'm convinced that the battery life is tied to the network connection. This is amazing! My screen isn't even on the dimmest setting. Amazing.

    Update: now I'm at 31% 11hr 10min!!!

    I actually get better battery life on my Nexus than my Droid 2. The ROM and kernel combo with undervolt does the trick, last about 12 hours from full charge with the same usage then the Droid 2 with 8 hours...

    I flashed the "leaked" radio and gave that a go. It definitely improved my reception as literally I went from 0 bar to 3 bar in the same spot where I sit...The phone plugged in for a bit and got to 70% charge when I went to lunch. The I left it unplugged for the rest of the day, and I am on wifi mostly. To this point, ~14+ hours later on battery alone and I am still sitting at 29%....where as I drained 35% when I had no signal at work in 3 hours...

    Assuming you rooted your phone since you are using setcpu, are you using stock from? How did the rooting go? Was it easy enough? Rooted phone before once but not galaxy nexus. Direct me to something that did work for you.

    Mine never says keep awake. Is yours rooted or do you have a task killer?

    I never keep any of my settings turned off either. Location, data, all that stuff is on and I'm getting about 12-13 hours out of it

    If you click on android os it says keep awake. My keep awake time is higher than my screen use.
