    There's been numerous threads and people in development and ROM threads/forums trying to figure out exactly what settings will help their phones battery life most. However, most people don't get straight forward answers and are left not knowing how to use setCPU or No Frills correctly.

    So basically, I'm making this thread to have people post their Profile and Voltage settings in posts below.

    Feel free to post what rom/kernel you are on to best help users know which settings will likely best suit them. Everyone's phones of course react differently then one anothers so results will vary of course.

    Type your settings or post screenshots below. :). I'll do so also once I get to a computer.

    Great idea!!! Even though what may work for one may not work for others. It would be a good starting point.

    Remember, diff phones have different tolerance. What might work for my phone might not for yours.

    Also, I heard that if you set the voltage too low, it can make battery life worse so play around with different settings and see what's best for your phone.

    i usually take the voltages given for a kernel and multiply it by 90%. This usually provides lower voltages while still being stable.

    Thanks for replies guys. :).

    As mentioned, settings will work differently on every phone most likely. So take these to get a good picture of what will likely work and feel free to switch some things around to fit your phones needs.

    I have the AR ROM and use No Frills. I left No Frills settings to default and noticed a huge increase in battery life. Not gonna mess with what's working so far:)

    Here we go! I too use No Frills default before switching to this.

    After a lot of testing and random reboots due to my phone not liking the settings, these finally seem to work perfectly with my phone. Not sure if this was.. a mistake? or something, but when I applied these I somehow went up 2% in battery from where I was. :p

    mind directing me to where I can find the no frills kernal. I'm running ARHD also, but with his included kernal. I would like to try another.

    NoFrills is an App in the Android Market similar to setCPU. I'm on AXION's v2.2's custom kernel it comes with. Before this I was on the Apex Kenel.
