    What have you OC'ers found? Is the extra "oomf" costing you much in battery life?

    And, can you easily make it through a whole day without recharging?

    I have mine set to 800 and the battery seems the same to me. I have not noticed any major difference at all. Totally worth it!

    Monitoring, but haven't had much consistent use / charging to mirror past experience. Off the top of my head, doesn't seem to be much worse but honestly the data is not solid enough yet at this point. Will report back in.

    Running at 1GHZ.

    I'm running Bugless Beast (could not love this rom more) at 1Ghz and setcpu with an aggressive profile structure:

    Charging 500 max & 125 min
    Sleep 250 Max & 125 min
    Power 999 max & 500 min

    I am getting phenomenal battery life. It is better than when I was stock. I think the Beast is a very good rom that helps battery life better than some others (that is a very subjective statement though). I think the real difference is the Setcpu program and the sleep settings.

    Yesterday after very heavy usage that included GPS, movies, surfing, music and many emails, I had 50%, or was it 40% (I can't recall) at 11 pm after being off the since 5:30 am charger. I think it was 40%. Whatever it was, it lasted all day and then some.

    Running with it at 800 max (default from Bugless Beast ROM) and I haven't noticed any change in battery life from before it was OC'ed. If there is a difference, it's negligible.

    I like most ppl am running the 800Mhz OC. I notice almost no difference. If anything my phone laster longer because it Underlocks when in sleep mode. I listen to Pandora at work for about 6 hours a day and I still have 30% when i leave work. Still goin to get a dock for work though. Now that i am using the Beta converter for my movies i think the droid will be lit up alot more ^_^.
