    My battery life has been fine, a little lower than previous builds but I did notice Call Standby is the top battery usage for me in this build which is odd since it's normally display. But that drop in battery hasn't been significant enough for it to effect me.

    after fully charging my phone and then doing a Clear Battery Stats I noticed when I booted up that I was at 70%. So I charged it to 100% again and re-wiped my Bat Stat. Now I was at 90% after booting up. So I charged to 100% yet again and wiped stats for a 3rd time. When I boot up, still at 100%. I think we need to just calibrate it correctly. We'll see what happens from here.

    The stock kernel with 12.24 cranked up to 800 is giving me the best battery life since I got my Droid brand new. I've tried pretty much every ROM out there.

    One thing I do now is to wait until it gets down to 5% before I recharge it. I used to put it on the charger when it got down to 30% or 40%. The last couple times, I let it completely die out to where it shut itself off.

    Confirmed with other builds, that you have to wipe the battery stats at 100%, fully drain the battery, fully charge and drain again for good measure. I get great battery life now.

    Mine seems to jump to 90% within a very short time right off the charger and overall it's not real good. I love the ROM so I deal with it because I'm tired of fighting with it.

    The advanced menu when you boot into Clockwork Recovery. I am not sure how to do it in SP Recovery.

    Yea, I thought maybe it was just me, but I am also getting poor battery life with this version. Can't go a full day without having to plug in. Kinda sucks. I think Miui is the best rom as far as features go, but batt life and stability is killing me. I had to go back to Bugless 6.1 just because of those two issues.

    im experiencing a lot worse battery than on the previous version. I used to last 15 hours with nice usage, now im lasting about 8 hours with light usage. Even only lasted about 8 hours while on airplane mode, without any internet data, games, or anything, just used it for a timepiece... that was kinda ridiculous :(
