i dont know if i need to adjust some settings but my battery life using the 3DES.1 ROM on a vario ii is appalling. i charged my phone fully by 3pm yesterday and it was flat when i woke up this morning. Id only made one phone call and had just had it in my pocket most of the night.

My housemates vario ii using the wm6 black ROM has exactly the same problem - something like half the battery life he had with wm5.

wonder if anyones found a fix

I don't think it's WM6 that's increasing or decreasing battery life, but the radio that you have. Some are better than others about stretching the battery and some roms have included new radios while others were just os upgrades.

Battery life will also depend on how much you play with it, volume settings for the device and phone, along with wot delay you set for the screen/device to switch off. I have mine for 2mins screen off and 3mins turn off.

Also wot radio versions are you using?

I have and it will last me almost 2 days without re-charging.

I txt a bit but don't make much phone calls. Ocassionally play bubble breaker and check calendar.

I use and make several calls, surf the internet regularly, use GPS almost daily (without the phone being plugged in) and play a few games at lunch or while waiting on someone and almost never have it below 50% charge when I get home.

I use GPS almost daily, play games all the time, use TCPMP to stream music to my BT headset, use my calender throughout the day and make at least 100 minutes of phone usage a day, usually it's at about 30-40% by the end of the day.
