    Ever since gingerbread my battery is barely lasting half of what it did on froyyo.


    Anyone else have this and know how to fix?

    With a new ROM comes a whole slew of things to discuss that could have been changed that affect battery life. And I'm talking Gingerbread to Gingerbread ROM swapping, Froyo to Gingerbread as you have is a big difference to compare.

    Without being too redundant, I'd like to point out that there are LOTS of battery/performance tweaks available on this forum for Froyo and Gingerbread. I suggest looking under the sub section for the type of phone you have for tweaks, or the specific ROM you're using at this point in time. Gingerbread is newer than Froyo and with anything new comes new potential bugs to squash. Give it time it will work out in future updated ROMs.

    Whether you can see all the little differences visually or you can't see the code, Gingerbread was a major overhaul to Froyo in some ways. Some of those ways don't affect me because I don't use those things. Not every ROM is right for every phone, feel free to keep using Froyo until Gingerbread is PERFECT.. but I guarantee they will have seventeen more icecreams or whatever childish nickname is given to the next version of Android before Gingerbread is perfected.

    Let your phone completely charge to 100%, and leave it charging for about 30 minutes once it hits 100%. Unplug the phone and run it until it dies!! Let the phone shut itself off. While the phone remains off, full charge it back to 100%. Perform this process twice without charging at all in between the full charge and discharge.

    This is part of calibrating the battery, and it does help. I am getting about 36 hours or so out of my battery which moderate use and wifi/gps/auto sync always on.

    Is that a typo? Seriously? 36 hours? Wow! I don't think I could get 36 hours in standby!

    Nope, no typo (except for which instead of with). I will admit it is not always 36 hours, but when I am using my DX as a phone and not as a gaming center, 36 hours is nothing.

    If I text/email/voice call and stream a bit of music or browse the web, I can easily hit 36 hours. If I start playing games (pocket empires, plants vs zombies) then that time runs down to 24 hours or so (with a display on time of 5+ hours usually).

    Change from Nighttime saver to another mode, or create a custom mode. I have heard reports of people experiencing issues while using night time mode.

    From the posts, it seems you have already performed a factory reset, and have calibrated the battery by discharging and then fully charging while the phone is off?

    What do your battery stats look like now?Voice calls still the top? Are any applications showing in the list?

    Do you have a weak phone signal? Or connected using wifi? GPS always running?
