    tried running bbv5 after the 3 months wait honestly seems like this was quickly thrown together with not much put in. The battery itself i found myself needing to charge after only 7-8 hours of low-moderate usage. going to def switch. I appreciate pete dont take this post as a knock against the dev just my experience with the rom. just not at all pleased.

    Have you considered that it might be the stock kernel? Try something else. I tend to get improved battery life with P3Droid or Chevy's

    Which Chevy kernel did you use? Was it the older ones or the newer ones he post with as 4.8
    I have the new on he posted and battery drops more quick but not near dead. I would like to run p3 but his kernels dnt work with tempmonitor even tho it says it is supported on download page.

    I am running the same. All kernels I have tried bb 5 still runs choppy. It may be the interactive governer that is making the battery die. If I try ondemand the done is way to unresponsive. I do not know what is going on with bb

    same here, was going to see how stock played out and right now im at 16 hrs with about 50% percent left w/ light to normal use. will still probably go back to my trusty 1.2 lv chevy kernal as it loves my phone. normally get at least 24-36 hrs on a charge with my normal use. stock does run a lil warmer on mine tho.

    Jaw drop! :icon_eek:

    I NEVER get beyond 10 hours with light/moderate usage no matter which kernel, ROM, etc.

    Conversely, if phone is resting, it can theoretically last me 24 hours ... but w/o any kind of use.

    normally i can make it a whole day and have to charge in the morning, i know everyones use is different and its hard to judge on here what light to moderate to heavy is cause we all use our phones different. this is the longest i made it before i had to charge and i still had 15 %......



    and i just looked at my phone now and its at 18 hours and 40 % battery left. im pleased with that. and tahts the stock kernal too. gonna load the chevy 1.2lv later. phone just likes that kernal for some reason.
