    Last night before I put the charger on, I was at 19 hours 48 min., with screen on 4 hours 54 min. and my OEM extended battery was still at 34%.

    Mine drained 50% over 12 hours with 80%+ of the usage going to idle/standby on nightly 15! I hope that's unusual...

    are yall wiping battery stats. Be sure to do that when you are going from rom to rom. for some reason the battery will say that its full on a rom when it really isn't. Check out the link that is in my signature for instructions on how to wipe battery stats.

    I am on rooted GB and I was able to pull 26 hours of battery life. Out of that 26 hours, 2 and 1/2 with the screen on which was 39% of the battery, idle and standby were both around 15%. I would have to say that isn't too bad for being on gingerbread eh?

    Is anyone creating profiles in overclock apps? In order to save battery?

    Suggestions?

    I wipe my battery stats every ROM switch but I haven't switched to a different ROM since cm came out
    Now my battery is a little worse since I installed the .12 baseband but I haven't been home in about 2 weeks so I haven't been around wifi let alone a strong 3g signal all the time
    Maybe if I give it a few days it'll get better since I'm home using my wifi

    A quick question for all you cm experts. Pre-cm7 install, to do a deep-charge of the battery, I would first power down my phone. Then, I would plug the phone into the wall charger, and the M logo would appear, and then a battery charging animation would appear.

    I just installed cm7 (using nightly 21), and when I do the same thing, the phone boots up into cm7 instead of a battery charging animation. Is this normal, or is something borked?

    If this is normal, will the battery charge as well if I leave it plugged in for a similar length of time (say overnight)?

    Thanks much!

    Battery life isn't that good here yet. Hoping it will get better with these nightlies, because the customization and responsiveness are the best out there.

    One thing i have noticed is that there are no settings for auto sync other than to turn it off completely. Even if you turn it off most everything still syncs except gmail. I work in a bad signal area and this eats battery life very quickly. Unless i am missing something, these setting need to be added to the settings so you can have it auto sync at an extended time periods.
