btw, i'm running das bamf 1.4 with adrynalyne's kernel, did all the tweaks, tried juice defender and did the bump charge. i'm not getting anything like the battery life some of you guys are reporting and judging from the conversations going on elsewhere a lot of others aren't either.
Yes, you are correct that the issue lies in the utilization. I have copied and posted a posted from Roger Podacter from earlier in this thread"

Ok guys I apologize. A week ago I setup the current widget on 2 thunderbolt units here at the local Verizon store. Both collected data for a full week.
I just looked at the data and both phones stay at 34mA during idle time. Day after fly, over and over the results were identical, on both units. And they stayed on during the night too!
The bad part is that I did the same on the stock inspire at ATT, and that phone hit 1-3mA doing the same idle use. Which is a superb result. My nexus one stays around 5 mA.
So no wonder the thunderbolt sees worst battery life. You are gonna have to try a different ROM, or remove the crap stuff running.
Interesting though, perhaps Verizon has something running on the ROM. Go stock!
