As you can tell from the topic but I'm looking for the best battery life for my thunderbolt. I don't use it as often as my Evo3D, but i can't even get a day even if i let it idle all day. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

The kernal will likely mean the most for battery life. Well, besides your personal usage habits and if your location has a strong signal (or just keep on 3g for normal use, as LTE currently is a battery hog).

Imo's or BAMF's Test 3++ I've tried and get 18+ hours on my Tbolt. ASOP roms seem to have the absolute longest possible battery life from what I've read, but I'm a Sense guy.

X2 on what Collije has said. If your running IMO's kernel, have you tried switching to battery saver mode? I'm on Rezound battery (bumped n calibrated) 12hours @ 30% with med use.

Oops, haven't been back here in awhile

Hmm, airplane mode & dies in 8 hours. Yup sounds about right. Although if it sits all day in the locker in airplane mode might as well shut it off imo.

That said, root (if not already) and just give a ROM a try. If you like Sense, give Team BAMF's BAMF Forever specifically I recommend 1.11 version (this has BAMF's Test 3++ kernal already baked in) which you can get directly in the original post on their own website (no linking here). Once installed, I recommend a couple of extra steps within "BAMF settings":

CPU governor: Try OnDemand vs SmoothAss
I/O Scheduler: Try Noop.

Be sure to battery condition & wipe battery stats(yeah yeah, some folks will debunk. Whateva). On BAMF's site has the most comprehensive method imo. It takes about 2 - 3 full cycles to fully charge then fully empty, but many folks are at least doubling what you currently have.

I've been running Skyraider Zeus rom on bamf's site and its been amazing as far as battery life goes, running stock kernel. Oh and get the rezound battery the difference is amazing!

I like Skyraider as well, amazing customization choices. I'd love to see a refresh (cough...hint...cough).

And something to be said for the Rezound battery. It really does exceed expectations for not a huge extended battery.

Actually, give the battery a try 1st. Spend a twenty methinks you'll like it once calibrated & you've gone through a few full charge/empty cycles to build new battery stats.
