    So some people are still getting 3-4 hours of life while others get multiple days.

    Post screenshots or whatever of your best battery life. you can also state if you're running any roms, special programs, or settings that extend your battery life.

    Here is my current best.

    I've been unplugged for two days, light use (texting, voice, email, web). I am running Das BAMF 1.6.3 non-themed, SetCPU with multiple profiles, watchdog lite. I am on 3G/Wifi most of the time unless i'm out and actually need the 4G, I leave auto-brightness on and auto sync with most things set to sync once a day.

    Here they are, I removed the handcent widget from one shot and didn't take a picture of the calendar agenda widget, i use a lot of widgets because I don't feel like putting applications on the screens since I usually load the new rom everytime its released.

    Interesting...they say widgets affect your battery life too but from what I c yours is still great despite using several widgets.

    What about your setcpu, what profiles do u use for that

    I heard the smartass on your rom works perfect.

    I actually don't use smartass because of all my profiles. I have a charging one to overclock, two battery ones one for battery <101% set at 1GHz on demand and one for <50% set at like 800MHz. Then my screen off profile is 300 min 400 Max powersaver, and a temp>41° at like 700 MHz.

    This is after what I consider pretty heavy use (lots of phone calls/emails) - Rooted running Liquid Thundersense with imoseyon's kernel:

    I don't know my max since I plug it in every night but on most days I unplug at 7:30AM and don't plug it in until 11pm and I think it's only died once. I'm running stock rom, not rooted and stock battery. I'm in a 4g area but I keep it switched to 3g only unless I'm watching videos or downloading something. Yesterday was the first time it died before I went to bed and I had 4g enabled all day. Still, it was about 7pm when it died (actually it was at about 10%) so that's almost 12 hours even with 4g enabled.

    I have "Always On Mobile Data" turned off, my brightness is set at around 25%, the updating is turned off for the BLOATbuster app and other well known battery saving techniques that don't take away functionality. I recently started using Go Launcher Ex instead of Sense but it hasn't made any difference in battery life.

    It's 2:26PM eastern time right now and I've been unplugged since 7:30AM and my TBolt battery is at 77%.

    Fresh out of the box last night. Unrooted, stock battery, moderate use so far and at 68%. 3g only. Overall first impressions r pretty good, can't wait to root this beast!

    This is from today, unplugged around 7:30ish. Had set CPU screen off profile active most of the day. Didn't text too much. Phone on idle mostly until 5, minus a few games played. When I got home around 5:30 had WiFi on the whole time. Words with friends, fb, YouTube, and games. Heavy nonstop use for about an hour before posting. Began using screen filter about 20 mins ago, to dim backlight. Awesome batt life today. On stock batt. But didn't really text much and no phone calls

    Well, I've had my tbolt for about a month now, and at this moment I'm getting around 24-26 hours life out of it, on medium usage (voice, angry birds, facebook, gmail, exchange email, texting). I've done my fair share of tweaking to get as much battery life as I currently do.

    I'm not yet rooted, so I'm still considered stock (ROM, battery) but I plan on flashing Das Bamf 1.6.3 w/ Adrynalyne, as well as setting up some SetCPU profiles to see if that bumps me up to maybe 42 hours.
