    This has been the case through the older Sholemods as well, but I'm curious if anyone has a solution.

    In the battery usage area when you're stock, you can see specifically what items are using the most battery. Specific games, programs, etc. With Droidmod, I can only see Display, Voice Calls, Phone Idle, Cell Standby, and a few other things (GPS, Maps, etc.) All of the specific information is gone. This isn't usually a huge issue, but when something is draining your battery more than usual, it's nice to know what program is doing so.

    Any solutions?

    No, I don't see any changes with Droidmod. It looks the same to me.

    Yeah, I know that Droidmod hasn't changed it. I was wondering if there was a program or solution out there.

    It seems this is an issue with their kernal.........the only thing that I have installed from the DroidMod rom (I actually think it is from Sholes 2.0.6) is the kernal and this started happening to me as well.

    and sometimes they were extremely random. like random stuff that i dont use would have like 80% then 10 minutes later, that would have like 3% and display would have it all (which does make sense)

    Yeah, I can definitely see that it isn't great on the battery. Fortunately I have an extended battery so I don't really have a lot of issues with making it through the day. Otherwise, I doubt I would keep Droidmod.

    Battery life since going from Sholes to DroidMod has suffered slightly for me as well...

    I've been getting really great battery life with DroidMod, WAY better than stock. But now that you mention it, I always use to check battery info to see what programs were hogging the most juice just running in the background. Now with DroidMod seems to just list basic system functions.

    I didn't have this issue......checked a couple days ago and a few games were listed and some other things.....and never noticed any extra drain on battery either.

    My battery is definitely still better than stock, but it seemed to hold a little longer with the same use on 5.x versions when it was Sholes. Could just be me....

    I'm having the same problem. Just shows Maps, Phone Idle, Display, Cell Standby... and that's it! Has anyone figured it out? Thanks.
