Guest jcostantino Posted October 5, 2006 Report Share Posted October 5, 2006 (edited) I've been using this off and on and from what I can tell - the battery life is horrible. I've only had the phone since Monday and with light use, it seems like I can barely get a day and a half out of it. Right now I'm trying to run the battery down all the way to see if that might help it out somehow. Maybe a full discharge/charge cycle will reset the battery meter since I did start using it immediately without charging it first. What sort of battery life should I be getting if I use GPRS to browse the web, have a couple services downloading in the background like NewsGrabber and SPB Weather, and use the PDA functions? The only non-standard thing I'm doing is using xcpuscaler to overclock to 220mhz (and the automatic throttling to underclock to 154 at idle). My Cingular 2125 always had plenty of battery even when overclocked to 240mhz, backlight on full, BT on, junk running in the background... obviously this is completely different but it's similar in CPU. Maybe the larger display takes up more juice to keep running? I've disabled my push mail and I never have the wlan on unless I'm specifically using it which isn't often since it doesn't seem to be that much faster than EDGE when I'm using Pocket IE. Any ideas? I've been streaming internet video for the past half an hour and it's only gone from 65 to 50% battery so maybe running the battery flat and recharging it could help? edit - forgot to mention that I have the AKU 2.6 update from Tmo USA on it but I guess you could infer that from the fact I disabled my push email.
