    Looking for the ROM with the absolute best battery life, performance is not an issue. I've been using midnight ROM, and i prefer sense, but can't seem to get more than 12-14 hours per charge (and that's if it sits in my pocket all day at work). It's an absolutely great rom nothing bad to say about it at all, but I'd like to achieve better battery life than that. Any insight is appreciated!

    I think cm10 gave me the best but any of the jb ROMs beat the sense based

    I'm running Midnight 1.12 right now (because I don't want seeder- that kills the battery it seems). I can get about 28 hours battery life including about 30 minutes surfing on lunch and two or more hours of music play.

    Get Juicedefender off the market and install it. Let it use the "balanced" settings.

    Go into any app like facebook that will post notifications and turn them off. Also increase the update intervals on these types of programs to every hour or every 4 hours.

    Go into kernel tuner and set the minimum CPU speed to 192 and the Max to 1188. Change the governor to either conservative (little more battery life but makes a noticeable difference in performance of the phone) or Lagfree (Which seems to help with better battery life but doesn't affect the performance as much). The real thing between the two for me was with conservative the phone was unresponsive and music would sometimes stop and start.

    I've found that some games (words with friends for example) will chew your battery up too because it keeps checking for new moves. Get rid of it...

    Hope these suggestions help.

    thanks for the tips. never used juice defender I may have to look into that and try it out. i'm messing around a lot with kernel tuner trying to get a feel for things and how it really affects the phone. right now i'm at 192 min, 1188 max, and I have the second core underclocked to 192 min, 588(? under 600mhz) max, to see if that has an adverse affect on things.
