Don't know about Battery Trickling
It will be good if you can elaborate it

The 'Battery Trickle' is something that an SBC Kernel can perform, it's known as a Superior Battery Charging Kernel, it continues to trickle-charge the battery even after it reaches 100%. Non-SBC kernels cut off charging at that point, and the battery begins depleting even though the battery meter still says 100%.

Sorry I should have made that clearer earlier.

SBC Kernels have issues though as they can degrade the lifespan of a battery.

an old friend told me that using only one location in the weather widget in sense could have bettered the HOX battery life, and for me it did

thx man ...
but the idea of buying a flagship phone like HOX, only 2 end up lowering and disabling everything dosnt make any sense 2 me !!!

Even with the power saver feature in 4.1 Android JB, you still have the impression that ur battery is leaking out somehow :/

Shame on HTC !!!

Re: Tips to maximize battery life for HOX - Noob Friendly
Using a dark wallpaper would actually be worse for the battery. My nexus 4 and your one x's use an lcd screen. Lcd screens use less battery displaying whites compared to when displaying darker colors such as black. The logic thst darker wallpapers use less battery only works with amoled screens

Thanks for the nice hint.
