    Switched to virus Rom with protekk's kernel and it is either horribly uncalibrated or this battery life is... Orgasmic. Been off the charger for 30 minutes and hasn't dropped a single percentage.

    Oh, and that's 30 minutes of heavy, near constant use

    I love it. Ive tried most that are out and this is the only one that I can crank up and it runs like a beast on my phone.

    I have a profile to turn the clockspeed to a minimum when the screen is off, also one that turns the clockspeed down to 1.0ghz if the battery goes under 30%.

    No you don't, just dial ##PROGRAM on your dialer and change the radio mode from CDMA + EVDO/LTE to CDMA Auto (PRL).

    Bloatware and battery life

    What bloatware specifically have others removed in order to improve battery life?

    With the standard battery I'm getting roughly the same I got with my d1 on a gingerbread Rom. With the extended battery, I don't know if I could even kill it in 1 day should I try to! (from normal heavy use of course. Obviously navigation and streaming music for long periods would probably do it, but that's stating the obvious.)

    I'm running DasBAMF 1.4 with imoseyon's leanKernel 1.41GHz Extreme version.

    It's under-volted and over-clocked to 1.41 GHz with imoseyon's Thunderbolt tweaks included.

    I've thad tremendous battery life and performance. It's not going to work on all phones, but it's working pristine on mine.

    imoseyon is a Linux engineer and the guy seems to know his stuff. The results speak for themselves.

    I've also read over on XDA that over-clocking your Thunderbolt past 1.41 GHz isn't going to help you with performance and will just decrease battery life.

    imoseyon's kernels:
    [Kernel] leanKernel: minimal kernel, 1.41Ghz (and 1.92Ghz) - xda-developers

    You running it at 1.2 all the time? If so try keeping it at 1ghz and use smartass governor. Also, are you syncing everything imaginable or using a task killer? Those will drain your battery. Usually when someone says 6 hrs they are using task killers.

    Your battery should be better than that, maybe you have a defective battery?
