    Forgive me if I am being a noob here but unlike most other Roms there is no option in Menu>about phone for seeing what is using the battery like display, apps, etc. And time since unplugged,etc. All it gives is the current state of the battery and battery health but does not show what is actually using the battery? Or am I missing this option somewhere? Running .6.1 Thanks!

    Hi BullDroid,
    I had this exact same problem - but I found it :D

    Go to Settings > Applications > ... You will find "Battery usage" and "Battery history" there.

    Hope this helps :D

    Alternatively there is "Mini-info" and a few other widgets for quick/easy access to the info).

    There is also a cool little app called "watchdog" that offers battery and (more importantly) CPU usage stats and will let you know of 'bad' programs that tend to eat CPU cycles unnecessarily.

    Awesome! Thanks for all the quick replies guys! Would have never thought to look there! On a plus note I have been unplugged a lil over 8 hours and I still have 60% left. Ive had about 2 5min phone calls. ABout 50 texts and Ive been playing music through power amp for a few hours now too :). I guess I should add that I purchased the Droid 2 extended battery though :)
