    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.

    sent from the great depths of my phones internet (thanks Al Gore)

    Hi everyone, i'm new to this forum but not new to trying out Kernels for my Moto Droid 1, So i tried Chevy's1 Kernel, Slayher kernel the latest one for GB and the one for froyo, and a bunch more... one that i tried but i had trouble with was P3droid kernel but after a few tries i got it working and man that Kernel is flying, recharges the phone faster and can't explain how excited i am because to be real it's the ****, the socond one i recomend is Chevy's1 kernel Simply stunning Gingerbread because it has a nice theme that comes with it and by the way i'm on my way to give it a try for the second time because i like the pimp'n look it gives to the status bar, it didn't notice it faster than P3droid but if you are the kind that likes performance and look rather than battery life i recommend that one, for bettery performance i recommend p3droid whatever overcloack your phone can take: now with p3droid what i did was i first flashed the kernel then the ramzwap file to use compcache, but all these needs to be done before you turn on the compcache, and also the Detethering option being checked makes it really slow so uncheck that if possible before flashing this kernel, another thing was i unchecked the Lock messeging app in memory, my phone is faster than any other kernel i have tried for the U.D 3.1.1 and if it discharges quick it charges full within one hour.

    Depends on what the actual issue is. Things to try:

    * Get and run the Spare Parts app after leaving your phone alone for a couple hours. Check the battery usage and "partial wake usage" and see if any app has a partial wake lock on the phone

    * Remove widgets that have to poll for information; CPU/Battery temperature gauges, weather, twitter/facebook, etc.

    * use setCPU to limit the max CPU speed when the screen is off to about stock or below.

    * change your governor from "interactive" to "ondemand" - you get a slightly less responsive system, but it doesn't run your CPU nearly as ragged

    But again, these are general solutions; you need to find out what the actual problem is first.

    If I have widgets installed but not any on the homescreen do they affect battery life? I am using the fancy widget for a clock in my homescreen though.

    In general, no, installed-but-not-used shouldn't take any battery.

    That said, I found fancy widget to be using battery even when it wasn't on a home screen. I don't know why, but I never had it on any home screens and it was running all the time, and was waking up my phone every so often, presumably to get the weather. It's in /system somewhere in UD, so I couldn't uninstall it; I had to go to root explorer and remove the thing.
