Whereas in cm7, after leaving wifi area with wifi on(and connected), upon returning to wifi area again, u will find venue connected to that wifi network automatically.
This means wifi is continuously looking for connection in cm7 but not in stock rom.Make appropriate changes to try and enhance battery life.

I am not using wif fi
I am on 2G EDGE mate

2:SETCPu application
Use this application to save battery.I used it today and felt the difference.

Any suggested settings?

Quote:

3:Set brightness levels to zero rather than auto.

We have to change our habits of using phones to save battery.Thats a hard fact!

Thats not an issue done that

1ST CLICK ON SETCPU - RUN ON BOOT CHECK

GO TO PROFILES AND ADD 2 PROFILES
1ST SELECT "SCREEN OFF" AND SELECTOR SCALLING "POWERSAVE"
2ND SELECT "IN CALL" AND SELECT SCALLING "CONSERVATIVE"

iM USING THESE SETTINGS TODAY.
cELL FULLY CHARGED AND DISCONNECTED POWER AT 8.30AM MORNING.
iTS 5PM NOW AND BATTERY LEFT IS STILL56%

i HAVE WIFI ALWAYS ON AS I HAVE ROUTER AT HOME.
i HAVENT USED MUCH OF INTERNET THOUGH.

AS PER BATTERY USE MENU TLL NOW FROM MORNING,
DISPLAY IS USED FOR 1.3HRS.
VOICE CALL DATA SHOWS 52MINUTES
WIFI USED FOR 8.30 HOURS AS WELL.

i THINK ITS DECENT BATTERY BACKUP IF I KEEP THESE SETTINGS.

YES PERFORMANCE SEEMS TO BE SLIGHTLY LESS WITH SETCPU.ABT 10-15% LAG IN PERFORMANCE.BUTS I WILL TAKE THAT.

talk2 (the one with video chat) wont fully work on the V because it has no FFC.

It might otherwise work to recieve video/voice though, but it cant send video.

Was on your settings before I re formatted my cell.
Was going okish..

But when I reformatted it, made sure the battery was full and then wiped battery stats.
Now I am onn without setcpu, goes for 10 to 13 hrs max with few calls, whatsapp always on, mails, etc.

Will go on with this for a month. Then check with setcpu if it gives any difference.

I dont know if talk2 allows you to use the rear cam, it doesnt normally allow the option to switch cams and obviously you cant see the other person if you use the rear cam.

You could likely hack it so it thinks your rear cam is your front cam, but I havnt looked into that.
