    What rom, kernel you running?
    What applications you running when you get such heavy drain?

    ok i moved you back to the root forums op.

    setcpu is one answer to many as far as battery life goes. we need some more info we need to know what kernel and what rom you are on. it would also help if you post what your settings are in setcpu as well. remember the more info you can pass on to us the better we can help you.

    You can dim the screen light when you are using it. That will save batter life as well.

    Try setting up a profile on SetCPU that turns on when the screen is off.

    What's your governor and scheduler?

    I've heard on Mason's Wheatley governor is good, I think. Not sure bout scheduler.

    Also don't set a screen off profile.

    In that 2hours is your screen always on??

    another thing you can do is report back what the battery stats are. not sure where you can find it on strike, however. it should be under settings>about phone>battery usage on a sense based rom, not to sure on an ics aosp rom. we just want to see exactly how fast your phone's juice gets used up.

    Ics roms kill battery (for me anyway), I always run gingerbread as a daily because then I only have to charge it daily. And its usually a bit smoother for me. Mason g rc4. 15 wheatley, and deadline uc to 691 >245. It runs so snappy with those settings and still saves on battery pretty well.

    one other question, how old is your battery?

    Your phone should not die in two hours. Either your battery is bad (less likely) or you have something keeping your phone awake. Are you roaming? Do you have brightness turned up all the way? Have you let your kernel settle at all?

    Before judging battery life on any setup, you should wait a minimum of 48 and preferably 72 hours to allow it to fully "settle" in. Your battery stats might get out of whack. You can find about 500 different methods of how to calibrate your battery if you look it up. IMHO, it doesn't do anything. If you give your setup a couple of days to settle in, your battery stats will adjust just fine. I never wipe mine.
