    I would like to get some extra battery life out of my Fascinate (at the moment I'm getting about 8ish hours with my heavy-normal use).

    I would love to keep my Voodoo'd SC 2.9.2, it's wickedly fast and exceeds my expectations of a phone, but I would like to see if Undervolting would help with battery life, while keeping performance.

    Is there a Voodoo compatible SC kernal or rom or whatever I need?

    Thanks guys.

    For anyone who doesn't already have it, my battery lasted 12 hours today after switching to the undervolted kernel. Ill keep this updated but if it stays about the same, thats 4 more hours than what I was getting. Also I had to replace the camera apk so that I didn't get that battery is low nonsense whenever I open the camera and my battery was low.

    If you haven't, I would recommend you chedo it out and see what happens with your battery life

    Using the same (latest) voodoo kernel from jt's thread above...

    Battery life isn't a huge improvement or anything, but I'm really enjoying it.

    I'm using nemesis2all's 409 uber. Running a top end of 1.3Ghz with a bottom end of 100Mhz with a -100mv undervolt. Battery life is great when idle or frankly any time the cpu is not at top speed. This kernel enables you to select your own voltages using the market app voltage control. Truly a wonderful duo together.
