    Hey guys.. what do you think of this.

    I'm at 51% @ 9hrs with wi-fi on & connected all day at work. Here are my stats on battery usage.

    Display - 28%
    Standby - 25%
    Idle - 18%
    LauncherPro - 8%
    Android System - 7%
    EMail - 3%
    Wi-Fi - 3%
    ... others omitted ...

    Do you think this is OK for being unplugged 9hrs.

    Nice! Thats very good IMO.

    I honestly dont get that good of life myself throughout work. But i do a ton of web browsing and tend to get into Fruit Ninja frenzy. lol

    I find that the display.. even using the 'energy saving' setting.. uses a lot of battery power.

    I'm also running SetCPU 200MHz-1000MHz conservative.

    On a completely unrelated note.. I was comparing my phone to my friends Droid X.. and even with my phone rooted, lagfixed and all.. the it was so much smoother. Everything.. from program opening.. to scrolling the app drawer.

    But, I am noticing that my phone "freezes" occasionally. There is no pattern to it.. but it's damn annoying.

    The freezing is directly related to the conservative setting from SetCPU. I was using it too but without a custom ROM its really pointless at this point. The SF throttles the cpu down on its as pretty well. The conservative setting takes awhile to ramp up the cpu from 200 to 1000 you there can be sluggishness and/or outright problems. I recommend against the conservative setting if you have anything resembling performance issues

    Again, until we have a custom ROM I recommend not using SetCPU. The SF manages battery pretty well on its own.

    I found an app "Battery Boost" that has helped my battery life quite a lot.
