    I'm not seeing the improved battery life people keep talking about with this ROM. I flashed the 802 radio, but it seems on par or worse than what I got with Bamf Forever & Gingeritis 3d on the 2.5.

    Is there a radio(s) that works better with this ROM that won't drop my fully charged 1600 ma/h battery from 100% to 90% in 20 mins of no usage, screen off, all apps killed, and Juice Defender running to kill data?

    How long have you had the rom installed? I just installed it yesterday and haven't seen anything like that, but from what I've read on other threads, you have to give the roms/radios a few days to settle in. I'm running the latest radio (906) leak btw.

    Been running it for almost 48 hrs. Haven't seen that radio yet. Are you using a custom kernel?

    I don't think a day goes by where I get less than 10-12 hours on the stock battery. I don't do any app management (juice defender, quitting programs, etc) I'm running 1.5X with the gingerbread battery mod, 6-bar reception fix mod, and the 906 radios

    Couple things to make sure you did: wipe /cache, dalvik, and system (I've sure you've done that), but also wipe battery stats (CWR -> advanced -> wipe battery stats)

    I've heard some people getting poor battery life with the 802 radio and 1.5 combination, but I was on that for a couple weeks now with no problem (just flashed 906 last night). If you continue to have the problem, try downgrading to 1.4

    Yeah, I wiped it all as per the instructions. I may try the new radio this weekend & see if that helps.
