    what do you mean flashing roms in line at the bank?

    I have simply stunning 4.4 and was wondering if there is a kernel with better battery life.

    Honestly, I've had SIGNIFICANTLY better battery life with blackdroid's Ultimate Droid rom with the stock 800 MHz. I've tried just about every rom out there, UD has given me the best life. For example, I unplugged my phone at 10am, I used it all day at work (texting, internet, market, etc.) and it was still at 40% when I docked it at 10pm. It could have easily made it to over 15 total hours I'm sure.

    I'm wondering because I like listening to distant radio stations on my phone and I was wondering if a different rom than ss4.4 would increase battery life for me.

    I had an extreme opposite effect with this mod. I used BB 0.4 and using ULV 1250 kernal from chevyno1. I had used my phone normally throughout the day texting, gps map routing, phone calls. I could use it like that for 10 hours and end up with 20-30% by the end of the day.

    I switched to Ultimate Droid with the stock kernal and my battery was dead within 5 hours. and thats with only slight use from phone calls and a short gps map route drive. i only had the gps on during that time. I also had setcpu to conserve my battery power

    Really? I got about 10 or less with UD 4.0/4.5, but with the new one, 5.0.1, I'm getting the best battery life I've ever had. Have you tried 5.0?I've used BB .4 and only got about 8-10.

    forgot no setcpu for me

    I forgot to mention that my battery life with BB .4 and the included kernel is without using setcpu. I think that Pete hit this very well and a lot of time when I mess around mixing and matching roms/kernels and using setcpu that is when my battery life is bad. I just decided to run it the way Pete set it up and I'm honestly hesitant to try another rom at the moment because I'm so happy with the way mine runs. That's a first for sure. I was changing them all the time before this one.

    I think it depends on the kernel/ROM combination. I've run Simply Stunning 4.5 with Chevy's LV1.1 kernel and had good battery life. Same with my current ROM ... I stream Pandora every morning while using the GPS and the JogTracker app. Typically I start with 100% battery and after 30-40 minutes using GPS and a continuous 1 hour plus of streaming Pandora my battery is at 70% when I am done.

    I listen to iheartradio for about 3 or 4 hours and it usually is at 30 or 40% that is why i was asking. But last week I was cutting the yard and it died around 3.5 hours.
    I just have plain ss4.4 that's why i was asking what is the best combo.

    its funny how the same rom effects the same phone type...I always run a new rom for at least week before deciding if the battery life, heat , speed or overall performance is good or not. I find a lot of roms will run very well and respond very well the first couple of days after flashing, but then start melting down after 3 days...

    So far the best results on my phone has been BB v.04

    I just flashed UD 5.0.1 and its quick as hell and runs cool with chevys uLV 1.1 kernel and battery life was noticeably better. I unplugged at 8a and at 6p I had 15% left with heavy browsing and tweaking phone settings. So I hope the rom keeps on performing like it is now

    i see everyone has a different opinion. If I wanted to switch to another kernel/rom from ss 4.4 how would i accomplish this?
    Should I go SS 4.5 or bb .4 also what kernel should i use?
