    Many that have installed BB V0.6.1 or 0.6.2 are reporting better battery life and others are reporting worse. To see what the correlation is between Battery life, Kernels and Hardware, would you reply with what Kernel you are using, what phone you have, and if your battery life is better or worse.

    This could be interesting.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Also, some have not calibrated their battery.

    I just installed 6.2 with the included kernel, will report back later.

    ^This
    Can't use old stats between all ROMs, many ROMs look at the stats differently so it's best to calibrate whenever you see odd battery life (especially after switching ROMs). That and li-io (while they don't have 'memory') do loose some capacity as they age so sometimes you need to adjust the scale for the 'new' capacity.

    I'll recalibrate the battery again.

    been using 0.6.1 since it came out and haven't notice a decrease or increase in battery life, seem about the norm for me ( still have to charge every night)
