Hey guys.

i was wondering if someone could shed some light on the EVOs battery life and their experience with it i am currently running a custom rom but it has stock kernal and it runs relatively smooth and just fine but my battery life is always unpredictable. sometimes it will get very hot and last only a few hours while other times it will stay cool and last up to 2 days (extended life battery equipped in phone). so i was wondering if any of you had either a great battery saving and monitor app your prefer to use or some sort of task killer or something of the sorts or just tips and etc in general to help me combat my short charge issue.

thanks in advance!

P.S. i also do about the same thing everyday give or take a few smaller sized apps and always close recent apps regularly.

In general, the battery sucks.

But try greenify, it seems to help me

the OEM battery did indeed suck but this battery does well as long as the phone doesnt get really hot (like at least 90+ degrees farenheit) than it will last for days on end no matter what i do which is kind of strange.

Indeed, the battery does suck, and greenify does help, but try this battery....
I'm running it and it slightly increases the life by abt 3-4 hrs....
edit: since i'm new to xda, i can't post links, but it's called ec technonology
just search "htc evo 3d battery" on amazon and this should be the second result

yeah i got the extended battery for mine and i have not been disappointed but when it all of a sudden gets hot it just destroys the battery. i will have to try out greenify and see if it helps me out!
thanks for the input guys i really appreciate it

i tried the underclocking using kernal tuner but my limited knowledge of kernal tuner made it a little hard so i set to the conserative and powersaver preset a few times but it was too laggy and ran very choppy which i didnt like but on xondemand it works smooth and gives me reasonable battery life so long as it doesnt get hot. im on a 3500mah battery though. and my screen birghtness is about 1/4 of the way up.
