    I recently went to my first real 2.1 build that I'm keeping for a while, it's an ese53 build one. Anyway my setcpu is at 550/250 all the time because this thing is so freakin fast at stock speed. Well it seems to take 3-4 hours before I even loose 10% of my battery, I will try a full day of no plugging it in tomorrow and see how it lasts, but it's always very cool to the touch, fast, and battery seems like it'll last 2 days.

    My usual battery is about 12 hours but I was over clocked to 1000+

    I've noticed this too. The ERE25 and ESE53 builds are much better in terms of battery life.

    By the way, have you seen this thread?

    [Release] Smoked Glass Boot *Updated 03/08* (ALL Builds/Voltages - 42 Kernels)

    It has the choice to flash an OC kernel, with low voltages! I'm running the 1.2GHz one at the lowest voltage possible. Still getting great battery life, and I hardly get temps over 35C.

    It's amazing!

    No I haven't seen that, I'm going to read it now, but I hope I don't end up re flashing my phone tonight, it's too late!

    I've been really surprised with the battery life since flashing a 2.1 ROM. I took my Droid off the charger at 6:30 am and it's now 1:00 am and I still have 3/4 of a charge. Granted, I haven't used my phone much today, but still, that is WAAAAY more battery life than I was getting before.

    I need to look at Adamz new ROMs with the all the different kernels. Damn, more flashing in my future. And I thought I was actually done for awhile. :D

    Yep, I've been running ESE53 with no OC (except my sleep profile is set to 250) and my battery life has been phenominal. It hasn't been this good since I first got my phone. I'm tempted to look into the ROM Fab posted above but I don't want to change anything because my phone is running so good now.

    in reading the thread it does not specifically state WiFi tethering support. Anyone know if it does?

    there is talk of WiFi issues earlier int he thread, but not tethering specific

    Don't know about tethering but the WIFI issues were resolved. He updated the download and at least for me, WIFI is working fine.

    Agreed. Battery life on my ESE ROM is phenomenal. Even with live wallpapers enabled and OC'ed to 1100, I'm getting better battery life than I've ever had, to be honest.

    Well when my alarm went off this morning, I rolled over to turn it off, and my phone froze, so I had to reset it, then about 3 hours later, I went to get my phone out and it was black, couldn't get anything to come up, so battery pull, and it's fine now.

    Oh, I'm running at 250/550 still with the low voltage, and I'm at 90% after 4 hours off charger!

    Guess I know what i am doing tonight.. what battery meter are you using?


    mine has been off the charger 9h 3m no calls made but surfed a bit and checked email a few times (3G, not WiFi)

    OEM says 80%,

    Battery Left says 77% Est, 80% System

    Oh this is Pete's BB V0.4 ERE25, Stock Kernel

    looks like we have similar battery life, I'm going off the OEM battery reading until battery life calibrates itself again, I reset it.

    Installed one of Adamz low voltage kernels.. the 1.2 I believe and have noticed my battery is fairing pretty well also. Been off the charger for 7hr10min and is sitting at 80%. That's after making a few 30 minute phone calls, and doing some browsing.

    I, like others here, have also clocked back to stock speeds since the phone is still just as snappy after 2.1.

    So this ROM will just change the overclock, not the rest of the ROM right?
