    Ok, I want to do this, but I am waiting to see what the actual improvements might be for those of you already running the test.

    Below is a screencap of my battery tonight...and this is about "normal" for me, except for a bit more phone call and the subtraction of surfing Droid Forums as I normally do.

    Now, to me, this is pretty decent battery life considering I am rooted and running Liberty v1.5, no Set CPU, no Undervolting of any kind...just disabled things like syncing e-mail since I dont need my e-mail til I decide I want to download it..

    You might get a quicker reply if you post this in the right thread.

    Looks like you should move that image to your dropbox's public folder before linking to it.

    Is that an antivirus? You should uninstall that for even longer battery life!

    first day of testing and im pretty impressed. i'm usually already plugged in for the night by now... ran test exactly according to OP and here are my results. lots of phone calls, gps always on for beautiful widgets and nav, sync always on, screen on 100%, definitely not paper-weight mode, just a regular day. still showing 20% at 1053. using the oem extended battery, 1880mah. i'm really curious if everyone else with 'extended batteries' are using the same as me, or the huge one thats like 3000+ mah and requires the larger back cover. hope this helps, Kejar, thanks for all your work.

    Just my two cents...

    I'm not running this test with the battery tweaks. I have the moto extended battery and am overclocked to 1.3Ghz, and I'm getting about the same battery life as the previous posts with moderate use. Additionally, I have a horrible signal in my office so my phone is searching for signal a LOT. I usually plug back in after about 17 hours at 30 - 40 percent left (sometimes 20%).

    In any case, the battery life I'm already getting is more than adequate! :)

    This is not to say that it couldn't be improved... And I look forward to the results of Kejar's testing. This is just to establish a baseline for improvement. I will post a screenshot tomorrow after a normal business day of use (3:30am - 9:00pm) for reference.

    its funny, i see all these stats with extended battery and i get better battery life with the normal battery. guess there is no need to buy the extended battery.

    Signal strength greatly effects battery life... So that may be why you get better battery life than others, even those with extended battery's

    Note I was streaming video from my slingbox via 3G, with wifi scanning every 30s AND GPS on!! 4 hours is exceptional.

    Edited for clarification
