    Okay, so some guys on bugless forum said he was getting better with chevys medium voltage kernal than a ultra low voltage Kernal is this true? he was saying anywhere between 10-30% increase in battery life does anyone know about this right now im using 1.25ulv and the battery life is okay but will a 1.25mv be better????

    When it comes to overclocking, everyones phone is different. I suggest you try it out yourself.

    yeah but stats would help if someone actually tested its not always the cpu that kills the battery its software stress apps the screen and many other things so i want to know if it has been proven not just my imagination that its better

    Why don't you do some tests and let us know how it turns out?

    Its totally different for everyone. For example I can't run any 1.25 kernels. In theory, the lower the ghz and the lower the voltage, the longer it lasts. But for me, non low voltage is better than low. Just get juiceplotter, that will help u get some data

    yeah and the big deal for battery life is having good cell service where ever you are so your phone isnt constintly searching for better signal or boosting the voltage on the radio to make up for poor signal so im not sure how to do this test

    When I went to SS recently I had shorter battery life issues. I did a couple of simple things: I revamped SetCPU settings a bit so that it starts clocking down at 75%, then 50%, 30%, etc.

    Second, for my "normal" profile (in setting profiles) I now have GPS disabled by default. That's a battery killer.

    Other than that, just be in the habit of turning your screen off when you set the phone down or put it in your pocket. The screen is still the #1 battery killer.

    I'm using 1ghz ulv without setcpu. Getting gr8 battery life. My droid just likes ulv and the battery temp out of idle is mid 20c's.

    But if you're not using SetCPU, it just runs at 550mhz all the time?

    All setcpu does is allow you to control the cpu rate. If I have a 1ghz kernel, my phone runs @ 1ghz with on demmand scaling by default via android os or my custom roms settings.

    Oh okay, you're using a different kernel that defaults to that, gotcha.. because Chevy's built-in 1ghz kernel defaults to 550 without SetCPU.

    Uh nope... using chevyno1 1ghz ulv from the forum link and just saw the cpu jump to 840mhz for a process in system panel. Unless you mean chevys ss roms default kernel.

    Actually I have to change that ... scaling is even done in my ROM without setCPU - it auto-scales (on-demand) between 250 and 700 ... so 700 is the max on my kernel without another tool

    People use setcpu mostly for profiles. So its up to you. Just sayin I run without with no problems.

    Not for scaling - however, it still has built-in profiles that can safeguard your device - I still run it personally

    Chevy, thanks for the kernels!
    Never been able to use them until now for some reason.
    Stock froyo, and I just flashed your ULV 1Ghz, battery life is basically outrageous....
    Thanks again : )
