    What is you current setup? How much do you use your phone, and how long does your battery last?

    I'm using Lithium Mod, p3Droids 1.1ghz lv, and am using setcpu with a few profiles. I'll post them when I get to a computer. But I'm only getting about 5 he's of battery with heavy usage. :(

    Yeah. I think that was part of the problem. Haha.*facepalm* and I'll try it.
    I'm also trying the screen off idea foxdog.

    I'm running alternate dark themed lithium mod with whatever kernel it comes with. It does seem to drink battery power, even with auto brightness turned off and Juice Defender running with whatever settings it determined it should use.

    Other people having a similar experience?

    Use Chevy's ULV 1GHZ kernel, set the CPU to 550 max 250 min, and keep the screen brightness to minimum. The battery last's all day for me. And I'm always fiddling with the damn thing.

    Try what they suggested. It helps a ton. I was at 50 around 7:30pm and am at 30 now. Where as before I would be at 10 or 15. Thanks foxdog and roasbeef!!

    LM with chevyno1's ULV 800mhz kernel

    setCPU profiles
    -main: 250/700 ondemand
    -screen off: 250/400 conservative
    -battery: <30% 250/400 conservative
    -temp: <45 C 250/550 conservative

    Auto Memory Manager set to aggressive

    Wifi: off when not needed
    Bluetooth: off when not needed
    GPS: off when not needed
    Sync: off when not needed; background data off
    Brightness: usually on lowest setting when indoors, auto when outside

    I get outstanding battery life with moderate usage. Right now, I'm around 30 hrs on a single charge...50% remaining.

    Wow. I'm experiencing terrible battery life right now. Going to edit my settings to match yours and see what happens. Although, unfortunately, chevy's kernels don't get along with my phone as well as the P3 kernels.
