    I was wondering if anyone has good or bad experiences with battery saving apps on their CM7D2. Post your observations here.

    Same with me. I calibrate the battery after each nightly, undervolt my cpu, use juice defender ultimate, adjust systcl settings. I'm a heavy user so maybe thats why I don't notice much difference

    You can dl the app battery calibration. Charge to 100. Run the app. Unplug. Let it discharge until it dies. Plug in and charge uninterrupted until 100. That's it.
    You can also go into clockwork and wipe battery stats and reboot (do the same thing with the charging)
    You can also go into root explorer. Go to system/bin and delete the battery stats file there too. Just reboot after to generate a fresh stats file.
    Basically, it resets how your battery is represented in the status bar. It will give you a more accurate reading of the true battery level (it gets off when flashing roms or plugging in during the middle of a discharge cycle, blah blah blah :)
