Yesterday I factory reset my phone and formatted usb storage and my cf card, just in case it was some filesystem corruption causing my fast battery drain. I wasn't able to diagnose a particular cause for my issue, but I suspect it was something sitting on partial wakelocks all the time.

This time I'm being much more judicious adding software and auditing their effects before continuing. I've now got it working dramatically better than it has so far, and I feel confident that I have proper diagnostic tools to discover future problems.

I'm running the stock rom and unrooted so far. All I've removed are easily removable preloaded apps that I know I'm not going to use.

Yes, but I'm not running a customer kernel or anything.

I would highly recommend a reboot for the guys that their note cant last for a day.... I root the phone the day before and yesterday my battery only lasted 8+ hours before it got below 10%. I checked and found that the phone didnt enter much deep sleep for the whole 8 hours even when its idle, it was sitting in the 384MHz for nothing.

This morning after I fully charged my phone I reboot right away. The phone lasted for 13:35 hr (screen on time about 50% and battery watch show display spent 53% of battery) and entered deep sleep a lot more than yesterday when it is idle....

its still doesnt last as long as my iphone4 did... but I will take it for now and see if I will need a spare battery later

MM's battery tips!

-Juice Defender. Free app on the market. Although I highly recommend the paid version, it is amazing. It controls your data / wifi / bluetooth and only turns them on when you need them.
-Screen off profile. You can do this in SetCPU. Under the profiles tab, create a new profile to only be active when the screen is off. set your maximum clock at 192mhz. Because you don't need it clocked up if it's just in your pocket or something.
-Brightness. As you guys are probably seeing from your battery usage, the screen is taking up the battery. Just lower the brightness. Sure it won't be a complete flashlight anymore, but you'll get used to it and it will help your battery.

Right now it's not the battery life that bothers me, it's how slow it charges. Hopefully we'll get a kernel that supports rapid charging.
