Running this (its included in GC 2.0) and ondemand governor with -50mV on all stock frequencies and battery life is beast so far.

Posting again today to show my great battery life wasn't a one day fluke, 12hrs 30min at 20% remaining. Using it for playing music with power amp some, browsing, round the clock push gmail and exchange corporate mail, etch...

Todays battery state, 10hrs 15min and has 27% remaining. Oh, I updated to the 1.1 with HDMI fixed last night. Doesn't seem to have made a big difference. Still great.

Flashed 1.2 this morning before leaving for work, todays battery usage, 11hrs 3min with 24% remaining. Not too shabby! I have been posting these to trend the battery usage because so many times people report either crazy high or crazy low usage right after flashing....or they see battery usage get better or worse over time.

Not trying to be negative towards you or anything, but it does help more if you were to post what you're running or your usages with the phone rather than just percentages and time used alone. Light usage for one could mean leaving data off or leaving data on for another, for example. Someone could be getting better usage on their phone because they use practically nothing or almost never use their phone compared to someone who "regularly" uses their phone because they stream youtube all the time.
tl;dr version - best to post much detail as possible instead of just "after X hours I'm only at Y%!"

Sorry if it seems a bit aggressive but it just irritates me too much when someone posts how long they've been using their phone without any backup as to why it could be.
I did at one time and felt it was redundant to continue to post my usage habits. I have two push mail clients configured for auto notify, corporate exchange and gmail. I have several websites I visit several times a day to stay on top of tech news. I use it as an mp3 player with PowerAmp most days for at least an hour or two. Several texts a day, maybe two calls a day. I keep it on Wifi while at work, school and home and leave it on 4g auto otherwise. I live in a very strong 4-5 bar 4g lte area so not much signal hunting. I use the EP1Q radio, this kernel of course and GC2.0 rom. I use SetCPU with ondemand and set all stock frequencies to -50mV, no overclocking. Its been made clear the kernel does not go into deep sleep yet either....or the 100Mhz slot. My screen is set to 2 minutes time-out and on auto bright. I use it quite a lot. The point being I get decent battery life even though I use it regularly. I hate to see people saying they got 3 days by not using it at all and in airplane mode who cannot understand those who actually use their devices who need a charge every 10-12 hours.

Ok I'm getting really laggy performance that comes and goes every few seconds and I can't post a logcat because something caused it to stop logging. Going back to 1.2 before the smartass fix, it was fine then. Only got this when I flashed to 1.2.1

**I can confirm performance is back to normal and logcat functionality is back to normal after flashing 1.2

After posting above I decided to try the 1.2.1 kernel again so I can use the smartass governor. Wiped cache and Dalvik and reflashed. Same problems. So I changed to interactive and it seems better. But as long as smartass governor is used its unusable and logcat doesn't work.

Weird it worked. Thanks. But I am also receiving the lag someone posted earlier on 1.21. Flashed back to 1.2 and lag free again.

What governor are you using when you experience the lag. I worked with imoseyon and we found on smartass it seemed to get stuck at 100Mhz. I bumped the minimum frequency to 200Mhz and it got better but in the end I had to switch back to interactive or ondemand to free things up.

are any of you able to save a logcat dump to provide to imoseyon? when i was using smartass logcat stopped working, only when i used a different governor would it work, so i couldn't give him anything to troubleshoot, but if one of you were successful it might be helpful.
