    We I have been curious to know which is better and thanks to all of our developement I am able to in a sense test and find out. I am going to run a 4 day experiment starting on Tuesday. How am I going to test you ask.....well I have my stock ROM on my "non safe" side using Smart Actions with JD disabled.....on the "safe" side I have RazrX by DroidTh3ory with Juice Defender and SA is disabled. I know this isn't going to be totally accurate....but after this is done I am going to run another 4 days reversed....stock with JD and RazrX with SA to see if it makes a difference that way.

    Everyday before I start I will boot into that days ROM....make sure it is at 100% (Full) then unplug and start.

    I have the configurations fairly similar....as close as I can get them....both with the intention of extending battery life. I will post my configurations once I get both sides set. If you guys see flaws in my configurations or know of a better one feel free to share and I will give them a shot.

    Do know....I am a heavy user for at least 12 hours out of the day when working. I am off Tue through Sat (first 4 days of test) then I work the following 4. So there will be a fair share of active and not so active days. At the end of the day....or battery....I will snap screen shots to show the time alive. You will also be able to gauge the usage off this too.....to avoid any confusion.

    I am currently watching a movie on my Razr now but when it is done I will post screen shots of my current SA configurations. I will also post a screen shot of what I would consider my average life span with this set up. Of course this is before the experiment started so don't count it.

    This will also assist me in deciphering whether custom ROM's are better for battery life or not considering they are typically deodexed, debloated, and such which "should" reduce battery consumption....right?

    I will be running the same LWP, same widgets, same launcher (Go Launcher with ICS theme) the entire time on both ROM's....

    Have you considered doing a test, THEN report results instead of posting ump-teen-million replies to your own tread?....just saying...

    So, which is better, after your long thorough testing???

    To the OP: thank you very much for doing this. Reminds me of my battery experiments that I posted on. Doing a controlled experiment is rather time consuming but worth it.

    When you run your own experiment, then you can post the way you want.
