    I just rooted and flashed GummyJar the other day. I have rest battery stats in CW. I am getting very poor battery life. For instance I just went from 100 to 94% in 27 minutes with really no usage. The screen is off.

    I am running SetCPU since I was have bootloop issues when changing voltage settings in Gummy Settings. In there when I reduced down to 800 or so, my phone shut off and rebooted into a loop.

    So with SetCPU, I have UV to 920 max and 350 min and scaling with InteractiveX. I did not change the voltage settings (still at defaults).

    What else can I do? Do I need to flash a different kernel?

    BTW, my battery life when unrooted was much better.

    I have read you can 'calibrate' the battery by running empty and charging full a few times. I have not tried this yet.

    Thoughts?

    I noticed that on some occaisions, mine tends to drain quickly from 100%-90% as well. After that though it slows down quite a bit though. I wouldn't judge the battery life on 6% though considering (as I understand it) Android can only really estimate where the battery is but it is only accurate in 10% intervals. I have quite a few times noticed my battery % going UP when left idle sometimes. So I believe it is an issue of estimating the % between multiples of 10%.

    I think I read that in a thread over on XDA so I'd search there for more information.

    Thanks!

    I did just install Battery Calibrator and that has seemed to really make an improvement.

    Does anyone out there recommend a better kernel to use with Gummy? I imagine the provided must be a good match but curious if anyone has had any success with any others.

    Sitting in the reading room with not much running except browser and wifi I watched the battery go from 84 to 81 in about 10 minutes. Definately shorter battery life on v7.6. Just went to 80 as I was typing this.

    I've had much better battery life with 7.6 using the 1.10 kernel undervolted. Yesterday was the best I've ever had, slow day at work=heavy usage and I made it 13 hours with 30% left.

    Since that post I have tried other Roms they are all the same must be the nature of the Beast (Galaxy Nexus). I got 2 cheap China batterys and a charger for a few bucks but I also purchased the extended battery from Verizon for $25. Not so much for the battery but more for the newe back also I herd more than one person say it makes the phone feel better in hand. I like a little heavier phone my self you gotta admit the Nex feels a bit light. As far as for calibrating the battery I read an article and it said it does no good never seemed to do any good for me. Gummy is still the best out there for me

    I almost always charge after 100% I leave it on all night. I did read that the battery percents arent always accurate so it makes sense
