@Zog assuming you installed on a batt stat wiped 100% batt, how long have your experiments been? I'm on DSlide X with DSlide Full theme at the moment, and had batt complaints too coming off of .596 DeOdex w/ BlueBread 1.2. However, after 2 days, and about 3 full batt cycles, I used my phone when I wanted and needed today (no HBO GO or Netflix) and got almost 20 hours, with 20% still left to go. Also, I run max performance batt at all times, and my Display always tops out too...may want to give it some, if you have not already.

I got that battery life after about 3 cycles upon a fresh sbf, liberty install and calibration. Its my personal best, figured id share. I avg 15 hrs with moderate use. Been running that way for a couple weeks now.

Heavy use is around 6-8 hours. Keeping your battery cool really helps its performance.. o yea and SLEEP MODE.

Personally the best rom for me as far as battery life is the original Gingerbread 596 build.. I have tried a lot of roms and seem to not have as good of battery life like on GB596. Maybe I should try Liberty v8 again..

I have had the same experience as mentioned here.. I could go 2 days of battery with rooted .596, but on AOSP liberty gb I get about a days worth..

So I suggest you keep using the stock GB and some themes... There are not many, but a few to change from.

I'm on CM7 and have been wondering about battery life on ssx. Just how good is it? And other than the update on FC's in the original post, have there been any other fixes?

I'm at fours hours right now and 65% but I used it quite a bit early in the morning mostly managing files with file expert and root explorer. I did a lot of theme swapping during this time, and used tunein pro a bit. Man that tunein pro must really suck the juice and I don't see how... I mean all it does is stream radio over wifi or 3g for that matter.

i noticed the radio apps killed my battery. Pandora uses less juice from what I've seen

I havent thouroughly experimented, but I've noticed an improvement in comparison with all of the nightlies I've been on. I just saw another ROM, also based off CM7, today called Liquid GB 2.3 (http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?1416-ROM-07.13.11-Liquid-Gingerbread-v2.3-Release). I'm gonna check it out tomorrow when I get some time.
