Default Battery life seems to be deteriorating..

I am on phantom hackers blazer rom 4.0 with the fb15 modem and when I first flashed I was getting a good 40 hours under moderate to heavy use now it seems like I struggle to make it through a whole day on one charge. What could be causing this deterioration? Seems like my idle battery use especially has gotten allot worse. I used to lose less than 1 %per hour now I seem to be losing around 4-5% per hour.

Probably the modem. Go back to the old one If you were getting good battery life with it.

Well thats the reason i switched to fb15 from el29 is because i was getting horrible battery life on el29. Fb15 was good to me for a good while. Just for some reason the last couple days the battery life seems to be deteriorating. Should i try wiping battery stats?

I've been experiencing this with all the new ICS builds.

Have you been in areas with bad reception lately? Maybe it's this or you just need to try different modems. Try the latest FC one

YES! Honestly I did not even think of that! In my house I am always getting 2 bars or less and sometimes I am even in roaming. I dont know about trying the new ICS modems though I have heard allot of reports of them making peoples phones really hot.

I struggled with the same problem, I moved into the lower level of my house and my battery life seemed to almost be cut in half. I usually get 1-2 bars down there vs. 4 upstairs. Now I know what the problem was. Thanks!
