    I got 24+ hrs without profiles w/ just stock ud 3.1.1. I had 17% left when I threw it on the charger. Today ill let it die all the way and report back w/ screenshots.

    Both good points. And I've heard this from people before. I set mine to 250-250 on screen-off, and the incoming call works out ok for me on my Droid 1.

    You're right that in general it does hover around the lowest speed, but I have the profile anyway, in case an app goes rogue and wants to eat my battery while I'm not paying attention. =)

    Well I guess I'm going to wipe battery stats then. My battery started decreasing from 24 to 20 to 18 and now 16. And all I really use my phone for is listening to music on my beats, checking a few sites from time to time, engadget, droidforums, facebook, and gmail.

    So I'm having great battery life as well but by looking at this thread, it seems like it can get better. So which is better for the CPU, interactive or ondemand? I'm running ondemand.....

    OnDemand takes a little less CPU than interactive, mainly because it scales up a bit slower and backs off a little quicker. The amount of battery saved/lost by using either one depends so heavily on your usage though, that you'll have to try both and see if you can detect much of a difference.

    You will get spikes, you will not get charge lines.

    Your updated images are charge free, your initial image...the device was on some type of charger twice. Rebooting does not cause the green charge lines.

    I was not calling you a liar, sometimes we forget that plugging the device in over USB to your PC (for copying files, adb use...etc.etc) the device charges...I assumed this is what happened.

    I get about 12-14 hours of use with fairly heavy usage and on wifi. OC'd to 800mhz. I don't know what makes the battery life better in certain roms but this rom seems to really like my battery.
