Im looking at all ther stuff thats running on the apps lots of stuff there I dont have task killer only thing I have is a look alike clock from market thats looks like htc clock I like it because it shows me bat temp and info on how much space Im using. Seems to me I could get rid of some of the rtunning crapo but noit sure what

    Try a different kernel. Download kernel manager from the market (it makes it sooo easy) and install the first kernel listed. It's "leankernel extreme". The developer is a Linux engineer so he's got some talent. I'm using his interactive x governor and so far it rocks!

    The bamf remix is the same Rom just a different theme. I've seen significant battery increases since I stopped using the stock launcher. Take all your widgets off of it (so they don't run) and try launcherpro. It is way more snappy, has a ton of options, and the plus widgets don't hog battery like sense does.
    If you have any more questions let me know, I'll gladly help.

    Edit:
    Also, create a shortcut on your desktop for "settings/running services". Stop everything except your keyboard, setcpu, Google services, and connect to pc. Check it regularly and that'll help too.

    I believe the biggest battery savings come from being able to downclock your HTC Thunderbolt when you're not using it. Second, removing bloatware and setting your syncs to 1 day instead of 15mins-1hour also help.

    In my experience as a non-rooted user for 3 weeks before I rooted - the app Blockbuster was downloading thousands of files all the time even though I never used it. I saw on my SD card almost 2,000 files that totaled to almost 100MB from the Blockbuster app alone.

    I've seen battery improvement by running a De-Sensed (no HTC Sense) rom as well.

    I think another close contender is running the screen at 20-30% brightness manually instead of auto-brightness.

    As most have said, stock was horrible. Blockbuster app was sucking down 50% of my battery life, that and all the other bloat pissed me off beyond belief.

    Ive had my thunderbolt for a solid week now, and I am much more satisfied with it at this point. I am in no way an expert, so please be gentle. First big thing I have read for battery life and stamina, search "battery conditioning" in google. Basically revolves around filling the battery completely and completely draining before plug in, not trickle charges here and there.

    From what I have seen so far this phone has so much going on, you will want to direct power to where you need it when you need it. 3g/4g toggle, brightness, wifi, bluetooth, sync, Gps, all with a undervolted kernel set with smart-ass governor will really take your phone to another level. Everything at once(for me at least) is just not an option. Just set up a home screen with every option at your finger tips and its a non issue flipping them on an off as needed.

    I don't have any numbers to give, but its beating the life of my Droid 1 by a good amount(that phones battery was up in age so i would call it even.) So I couldn't be happier. Good Luck, and thanks to the whole Android community for there amazing work on these roms and kernels.

    Currently running Das BAMF 1.4, and trying out leanKernal_extreme I came across in Rom manager.

    Lightning Rom v3.3 with adr v. A kernel using smartass gov.

    Haven't had it die on me in middle of day yet. Been using it for over two hours so far today, and I've updated the radio, updated to newer Rom. About 240 gb of data to download and then flash. Also did some other web browsing and stuff. Have 75% life left still.

    Also with 4g off unless I need it.

    Mine made it about roughly 6 hours. I was constantly on facebook and the web too. So had i just been using it for texting or something, could have easily squeezed out a little more.

    EDIT: I also went into that #* options and only put it on 3g as im in a small town an hour from the closet place that will have 4g any time soon.

    Beleive it or not I was able to go a little over a day before charging my phone. I took it off the charger yesterday at 930 and I had to charge it now. I was normal usage. text messages, talking on the phone, email and some browsing through DF app. I have full 4G coverage in my area. In addition, I am on the new rom Das BAMF 1.5 with new radio update dancedroid
