    Assuming I keep CPU speeds the same as stock, is a low voltage kernel going to save my battery life significantly?

    it should but it may take some time to find a kernel that works best for your phone.

    Yes as power consumption of an IC is related to the square of the voltage of the chip.

    V = IR

    P = VI = I^2 * R = V^2/R






    But yes, lower voltage means lower power consumption. :D

    Oversimplified but yes, I took a VLSI class a couple of years ago and we went in depth into power consumption of chips.

    I was told there would be no math!

    (BTW I have NO idea what you typed there...)

    this makes me ask... are there any stock voltage overclocked kernals out there? because i remember staying lower and running faster when the OC kernals were first introduced.

    Now i hit 50c+ frequently, and im on P3 1ghz LV kernal and its the coolest ive run
