    This bugless beast rom drains nearly all my battery life in less than 12 hours, even when i am not using it, and it takes a long time to charge to 100% and in 12 hours all of the charge is gone.

    Did you have longer battery life before?
    What apps do you have syncing via data and how often?
    What kind of items are enabled (BT/wifi/gps/screen brightness)?
    Do you have the stock kernel that came with it?
    Did you have it plugged in when you started up the new rom for the first time and it was busy downloading and installing the apps again?

    Are you using SetCPU? If you are I would stop. Mine was acting poorly before I kicked setcpu to the curb. Also play around with a few other ulv kernels. Im oc'ed to 1.2 with chevy's ulv kernel and I can't complain at all.

    And like someone else said, make sure (when you are not using them) to turn wifi, gps, etc off. That will help a lot I think.

    I had the same problem. It would drain twice as fast for me than when I was not rooted or not on bugless beast. I also noticed that the number in the battery meter on the top right was always 10 % higher than the actual percentage in the system info. Idk if the black glass theme had something to do with it? Cuz with the theme installed it would use like up to 60% of the battery in my display, and even on heavy usage before that my display wouldn't go that high. Anyway I'm giving it another chance and still tryna figure it all out.

    And I never brighten my phone unless I'm outside and turn the syncing off and gps unless I need it.

    The funny thing is just yesterday I was noticing the opposite. I was using Kangerade and my battery died twice in a day, but I had my phone unplugged for like 16 hours yesterday, normal use, gps off and I still had 30% of my battery left by the time the night was over. Strange that others seem to be having the opposite happening to them. BB has been the absolute best for my battery.

    What does it say under battery usage in the system settings? That should tell you what's draining it.

    Is it true that if I'm using the stock kernel, I shouldn't use setcpu?

    Not sure. Where did you hear that? I'm using it with the default bb v0.4 and my droid seems to be doing ok. I had problems before with the rom(see my comment before) but I reinstalled it again with the theme and it seems more stable now.

    samiam said it earlier in this post, and I was wondering if that would help save battery. I currently use setcpu with the stock kernel an my phone does run fine but curious if its hurting battery life.

    I don't see how it could hurt just trying it. Turn SetCPU off for a day and see how it runs. All I was saying is that it made a world of difference for my set-up.

    Hope everything works out well for you, I know things like this can be frustrating :icon_ devil:
