    What's the best low voltage kernel that gives the best battery life and gives less heat producing on the back of the DROID? :)

    Every phone is different. Some kernels only work with certain ROMs as well. I'd say try a few. To get you started, some good developers are:

    Peter Alfonso

    CorCor

    Slayher

    P3droid

    There's many more out there. Each review will be subjective, so I encourage you to just try a few out for yourself and get your Droid rockin. dancedroid

    The answer to your question and the many "which ROM is the best" threads I see will come after much trial and error by you and your handset, not a minute sooner.

    Enjoy the journey though!

    I've found deprimed (then use the primed script) to be the best for my Droid. Plus, you can alter the voltages manually! Seriously, the best kernel I've tried to date regarding battery life.

    +1000000000. I'm using Chevy01's 1200mhz ULV Kernel and an extended life battery. I get anywhere from about 30-38 hours of battery life with Moderate/Heavy usage.

    I've tried many and personaly i prefer chevy's but as stated above, all phones are different and respond to kernels differently. So try em all and see what you like. Thats the fun part.

    The kernels that corcor has are built off Peter's source for his v0.2 kernels, and has proved to be the best kernel I've used, well at least on any Gingerbread ROMs.

    ChevyNo1's kernels work well on my D1 as well. The 1.1 GHz ultra low voltage one ran alright, but I noticed a 1 - 2 second lag when turning on my screen, after the phone had been running for 6 hours or more. Some of my custom ringtones also didn't seem to apply, but that may be due to the profile I had set within SetCPU. I'm now using his 900 MHz low voltage kernel that he released on 5/31, and this seems to run a bit more smoothly.

    I like the fact that Google Goggles and Wireless Tether still work with Chevy's kernels. I've tried Slayher's and P3's kernels, and one of the two (or both) of the previously mentioned apps wouldn't work. Something about IPv6 support. But yeah, try out several and see what works best for you.
