Here's my battery life
Is that custom skinning or is that a specific ROM? I don't have juice defender, but I get about 3 hours of play time combined with about 34 hours of idle time. I'll edit my post when I get a chance to upload the screen shots.
Custom Rom- Baked Snack 1.6 Undisputed
Custom Theme- Emotionless Beast Final
I removed Juice Defender from my Epic, as it was actually making battery performance worse. It's much better now....
Did u try UltimateJuice?
I actually only run juicedefender and it has actually doubled my battery life. Mind this is without a taskkilller or any other performance app going also. But I can now go 10-12 hours and still be at 30-50% and that's using my phone quite a bit. I surf the web and text a lot and make phone calls for work throughout the day.
But that's just my $0.02
I used JD with my Moment, but never saw remarkable savings. With both the Evo and Epic, after installing JD we noticed some lag in pulling down notifications after waking the phone. Removing JD corrected the issue. I didn't notice near enough juice savings to make living with the slightly annoying lag worth it.
I have the free version and it usually says x1.98
I've never had it say x3.0 or even beyond x2.0
But again this is the free version. I usually get 36 hrs (leaving it on at night on airplane mode) before its getting close to another charge, and I use it a lot!
Care to share your JuiceDefender settings?
I am getting about 5 to 6 hours of usage before I need a charge (..with texting only, very little web surfing, etc.). I'm not really satisfied with my battery life, HOWEVER, that is about the same amount of usage that I achieved with my previous Palm Centro. I text quite a bit throughout the day.
I'm definitely open to ideas on how to improve battery life. I don't think that JD (..I don't have UJ) or ATK are really doing much. I'd be amped if I could text as much as I do and still get 15+ hours between charges.
5 or 6 hours?
wow, I get like 36 hours (24 hrs with phone on overnight and then a half day) with moderate use (only use 3G when online, don't use much gps, lots of texting, not much video watching lately)
I've disabled JD, and have just been implementing ATK only. I'm going on 7h 11min since I've unplugged the phone, and the battery life still looks good (..based on the icon). I've been texting throughout the day, and haven't done much surfing. I'm going to see how long it takes before I receive the battery warning.
My current stats:
Display - 70%
Cell Standby - 18%
Phone Idle - 5%
Android System - 3%
Swype - 2%
Handcent - 2%
My JuiceDefender settings
My battery life
I had Juicedefender. Uninstalled it. I downloaded it, had my phone on charge all night, took it off charge the next morning and within 10 minutes my phone was dead. I didn't realize that was what happened. I charged it again to a full charge. Unplugged it and 10 minutes later it was completely dead again. I realized that that was the only thing I installed the day before. I uninstalled it and haven'[t had a problem since.
jd did not help me, possibly hurt
I have achieved about 16hrs without a charge thus far, but I also haven't been on my phone much today (..brief internet browsing/texting). I'd like to be able to achieve that kind of battery life with moderate data use.
Make that about 23hrs before I placed the phone on the charger. I was only able to achieve this because I didn't use the phone much during the day. When I text a lot throughout the day, I'm still averaging about 6hrs +/-
