I'm running jf1.5 with the latest radio, and everything seems fine here. In fact, since the update, my battery life has almost doubled. I run my phone wide-open (gps, wifi, 100% brightness, 3g, probably 10-15 background apps) because I like to be able to utilize the full potential of my phone. Before 1.5, I had to carry a sewcond battery with me to make it through the day, but since the update, I haven't had to change the battery unless I spend a LOT of time surfing/gaming/etc. I don't pretend to know how my battery works, but I know that a lot of power-tools utilize battery "conditioning" to keep them in peak condition. They charge super fast for a quick-charge that will make the battery usable quickly, but then it slows down to prevent overheating (not good for batteries) and to prevent damage and shorter life-cycle. Is it possible that the cupcake devs worked some things like that into the build? (Not jf, or dude, or haykuro, but the cupcake devs) The #1 complaint abbout the g1 was battery life, so I would imagine they considered that while they were coding, and worked it into the system? I'm in favor of anything that makes my battery charge last longer w/out crippling my phone, and makes the battery itself last longer.

I was using 5.02G with whatever radio 1.43 had and I am now using JF 1.5 with the newest radio and the battery life is much worse. I have everything turned off and it's lasting less than 24 hours without any use. I think it's the build rather than the radio so might try going back to 5.02G and seeing if I'm right.

Thanks to all of the devs, modders, etc, who are willing to share their knowledge so that others may learn and apply it.
