    Do me a favor and check your Spare Parts sensor usage. My Dialer is using sensors nonstop.

    Have you checked spare parts to see what's running? My battery on liberty 1.5 last really well. Been unplugged for 2 hours with pretty moderate to borderline heavy use and it just switched to 90% about 10 minutes ago

    Had this problem and my battery stats showed that my wifi was the culprit. I shut it down and my battery has lasted more than a day for over a week. No idea what the cause is.

    I unplugged mine at 8am I am now at 60%, this is with my son playing angry birds for over an hour wi-fi running for half the day. So far not bad.

    You don't want wi-fi turned on unless you're actually using it. I use y5 battery saver to manage mine. Using it when available will help battery life and improve your download speed, assuming it's faster than 3G.

    Watchdog is also an app I recommend.

    I switched back to Liberty 1.0 yesterday and been running it today and it is 6:00 pm and battery is at 80% (this late in the day with 1.5 my battery would be no better than 50 - 60%), this has been with fairly light use. Tomorrow will tell better.

    As much as I love Liberty, I'm trying ApeX 1.4.0 RC2, and the battery life seems to be a lot better than on Liberty 1.5

    Apex 1.4 battery life has actually been worse for me than when I used 1.3. Guess this is where the phrase "individual results may vary" comes into play. Giving Liberty 1.5 another try.

    Well, I just proved how much Liberty 1.5 is killing my extended battery. With 1.5 running, my phone would show 60% after being off charger for around 6-7 hours, then usually by 9-10 hours I would be down to around 40 - 50%. Horrible battery life. So, I restored my stock nandroid backup I made right after I rooted my X last night and then fully charged my X around 6:45 am and after being off charge now for around 13 hours I am at 80% battery (8:30 pm). This testing was done in the same conditions on both ROM's. I was in my office for most of the time, like I normally am, so should not have anything that would have skewed the results.

    I really like Liberty 1.5, but I cannot live with that kind of battery drain, hoping I will have enough battery at night if I am off somewhere without an electric outlet or car charger. I even applied the battery patch and saw no improvement.

    Has anyone truly nailed down why 1.5 is such a battery hog yet? I have seen theories, but didn't know if it had really been found.

    NOTE: Wow, is the stock ROM slow. Very sluggish compared to Liberty 1.5

    Boy you're not kidding! I have gotten so use to the faster ROM's that I had forgotten how slow stock was. Makes you really appreciate these custom ROM's. But I wanted to test out the battery life, so I suffered through it for one day :cool:
