Default Battery life help and improvements!

Just installed cm10.1 by hash code on my rooted kindle fire 2. Battery life is good, but just wondering if anybody has any suggestions on how to make it better. I tried to adjust the brightness of the screen and it does not appear to work. Anyone less having this issue? Thanks!

You can try different cpu governors or underclock the cpu

Yes, that is a possibility. But without hindering performance, is there any other ways? Has anybody else experienced the brightness setting does not work on cm10.1?

Try the sgt7 rom by PowerPoint.

It's more up to date and configurable.

Edit: I've also been using the hotplug governor lately with no noticeable performance hit and much better battery (at least for the two days I've been on it)

It mostly seems to help your second core shutdown faster when the screen is off.
