    Just wanted to post a pic of my latest battery life as it is amazing and all thanks to pete and his amazing rom. Just a bit of an incentive for others to try it out.

    how? lol

    I usually get no more then 1 day out of mine...and that's only squeezing an hour or so past the 24 hour mark. Can you tell us a little bit more about your bb0.4 setup?

    I've had fairly average battery life while running BB.4...

    today my battery drained like I've never seen it...minimal use in the morning and by 1:00 I was at 15%....charged up and more light use and back to 20%....

    not sure what is going on...sometimes battery will take a hit if there is an update being pushed, but have no idea what happened today....:icon_eek:

    I agree. Seems that his display was OFF for a very BIG majority of the time. If I did that, I would get at least 2 days maybe more out of my phone. But in the real world, I get calls, send/receive txt messages, and check for updates to my software. I am lucky to get 16 hours out of my phone right now.

    Not that I dont believe him, just seems to me like he was trying to do as little as possible, like NOT answer calls, or reply to txts, and then take a screenshot near the end, which would give him the seemingly impossible to reach numbers he getting.

    Wow step away and I get flamed like crazy.

    This is a business phone. I am a auditor of governmental entities meaning that I am on the phone at least 10 times a day for usually 15-30 minutes at a time. I also am receiving at minimum about 30 emails a day as I have over 20 clients that I must touch base with at least once every two weeks.

    So no I was not avoiding using my phone. I was emailing and talking most of the day. Was the screen off when not in use ABSOLUTELY. I have facebook and twitter notifications in the back ground also so consider that too. I am averaging at least 22 hours even with a lot of use.

    Now if I turn on pandora and wifi tether I might get 7 hours out of it.

    On an ending note I am averaging about 9gb's a month so that you realize how much data I am using a month.

    Yep....21% of 41 hours is about 8 hours of battery chewed by display, with @20% of battery time remaining.

    By comparison, I can leave my display on all the time and get 15 hours with very minimal use....display would run about 80%, or 12 hours....and so, in theory, if I left my display off I could easily get 2.5+ days.

    These battery threads are all apples-to-oranges. There are a handful of things that materially affect battery life, everything else is just differences in usage patterns (like streaming pandora, heavy browsing, lots of texting, etc..)

    The battery is only capable of about 4-5 hours of talk time. your one screenshot shows no voice usage, the other 8% (of 80%) which might have been about 20 minutes of talk time.

    Not saying your usage is not as your describe, but these screenshots of your usage are clearly atypical use by your own descriptions.
