    My ROM & Kernel are listed in my signature.

    WiFi & the LTE are always on. There was no LTE on this run but the toggle was on.

    I'm liking it.

    From the graph the screen was never on for an extended period, and looks to cover about 20-25% of the allotted time which would be 3-4 hours (I'd love to know the exact number). Either way, screen time is a little on the high side when comparing to my experience on stock. I've heard good things about that kernel and rom, its one im highly considering...

    plus wifi really make a huge difference... that is probably a key factor in the life above too...

    I get about 2.5 hours screen time from 100% to 0% on stock and fully 4G. That's the main battery drain, and the most important measure of battery life in my opinion.

    I did not keep track of the screen time. If there is a way to get you the number tell me.

    I played pool a few times for 20 minutes or so and was in it off and on all day flashing stuff.

    I put it on the shelf last night with 95% battery and 8 hours later it was @ 93%.

    I don't know about stock but rooted on with this config has taken all my worries about the battery I had waiting for the release.

    In your screenshots, the one on the left, next time just tap "Screen" and it will show you the amount of time it has been on.

    That 8hr sleep of 2% loss is insane I'd be a happy camper as well!

    OK, that shot was with 1.6.6exp3.

    I am running 1.7 now and may go to 1.7.1 and make another run and get back.

    Running the same ROM/kernel combo. Here are my results from the past 2 days. There was a span of about 2 minutes where the phone was charging via USB because I was backing things up to my computer. To be honest, I think it charged maybe 1% during that time. Screen-on time is ~2.5 hrs, which is admittedly pretty light use for me.

    I could not be more pleased with the battery life I'm getting from this ROM/kernel. Running Imo's leankernel 1.6.6 exp 230 with UV settings at 230 min, 920 max, InteractiveX governor.

    It's a beautiful thing!

    Did another run today. Not a lot of activity but not allot of concern over battery loss either.

    I returned my Gnex only because of the battery life, threads like this give me hope!

    It really is not as hard as it sounds. If you're really concerned you might mess up, just use Wugfresh's one-click method. Does all the work for you. Once you're unlocked and rooted, flashing ROMs and kernels is simple!

    Plus, with all the helpful people on this forum, you can't go wrong!
