Default [Q] Diagnosing battery woes

My personal issue is SuperClean 2.4 does well on my phone but 2.5/2.6 die in under 8 hrs. Battery history under settings doesn't show any suspect 3rd party and I have flashed the battery stats script. Is there a cpu sleep state bug or something in the newer versions? I saw something on irc about auto-rotation errors.

Same issue here.
It's kinda bittersweet hearing that people are still on 75% after 12 hours of moderate use

Adryn did something with the new rom/kernel. I'm on 2.7.1 nonvoodoo and am seeing some of the best battery life out of my device. I'm currently at 70% after 16 hours of on-time, with over 1 hour of screen time.

Just wait until his next release and your woes should go away (most likely)

Adryn said the weather app was constantly syncing on 2.6. Thus the battery drain. I trust he'll have it straightened out on the next go 'round.

Wonder if he implemented the change on 2.8. Was not aware that in order to use the bstats script you have to run it in the terminal. I assumed you just ran it in CWM. By the way, was the battery data function in CWM ever fixed for Froyo?

I'm having the same battery issues. The phone won't sleep unless I do the GPS on/off then update position in maps/latitude. Then it fixes, but it doesn't stick -- have to do it each night on my wife's phone. Has there been any fixes for that?

Im having a ver similar issue as the op. several days ago i rooted and flashed from stock 2.1 to sc 2.6 voodoo. with nitrodark theme v 2.1. I noticed that since flashing to sc2.6 my batt life has been cut drastically. im at 83% batt life after about an hr or less with it unplugged. I used the phone to make a 2 quick calls (about 5 mins during one call and 10-12mins on the sec) nothing else. this is after i flashed the batt fix zip. All i did was flash the batt zip. i didnt push anything or do anything more other then flash batt zip file. Some ppl have talked about steps after flashing the zip but the initial directions only say to flash the zip. Can somebody plz help with this problem?

Today is the first day my battery has seemed normal since I installed 2.6sc I'm thinking it must take time to recalibrate or something. It took like 4 days where my phone would die with little use in 12 hrs or less. Today completely different though.

I just came to the same realization. You really have to give a new version at least 24hrs to really see how it will behave. And that's assuming you installed and configured everything correctly. I will probably be able to get about a days worth of usage once it stabilizes. I no longer bother with JuiceDefender since it would screw up MMS messages.

I want to reiterate that the instructions for clearing your battery calibration info need augmentation. In a Terminal Emulator on your phone you have to enable su and then execute the bstats script (type su, then type bstats). It is recommended that you only run the script once your phone is fully charged and still on the charger. Don't expect miracles from this either. It is only meant for people who have royally screwed up the calibration tables i.e. they never wipe their data between flashes.
