what roms / radios will give me the best battery life. currently running ahens latest rom with radio 2.08.50.05. battery life is good, have used nrgs roms in the past and they seem to drain my batt within a day of hardly any use.

2.09 radio seems best, as does 1.72 base and 218*** WM builds. look for roms like those.

Laurentius's ultimate power has great battery life. But most are ok for HD2. There are very few stinkers, and most battery life issues are due to 16GB cards - avoid roms with the documents/e-reader tabs to be sure of better battery life.

I would think that it might be an indexing service that are doing this powerdrain, if this is the case - Maybe killing indexing service on SD card would improve battery performance ?

that would mean that EVERY sd-card drains battery?! or is it ONLY 16gb?

Reading and writing data on the mem card will use energy... if it's idle though i don't think it will.
shouldn't the indexing be done on only the first boot if it is done anyway?

There are quite a few people complaining about battery dain caused by the memory cards.
The most simple test is proven to start the phone without a memory card. is it better then reformat the card in the phone. copy the files on it and try again. If that not works search for corrupt files on the card. especially music.
the indexing serviceisgion wild on some phones. shutting it down solves the problem.
use the search of the forum on these things and you will find quite a few threads about this subject

Mem cards are all power hungery especially if you have your apps installed to them. Internal memory is more efficient, faster and uses less power.
