    Battery Life

    I am on the stock Eden with the latest software released on April 11th. I have noticed that at brightness at 40%, only browsing sites using the skyfire browser (No videos and Audios), my battery is discharging at about 11% per hour. I just want to understand is that good or Bad?

    Anyone?

    So, you are getting about 9 hours battery life or about 6 hours before it complains? I'm getting much less than that even with most of it being in standby. I get about 4 or 5 hours before it asks to be put on the charger (21%). Also it doesn't seem to be linear. Early use takes longer to consume 25% than later in the discharge cycle...

    Dwarf,

    I need to run down the battery all the way to see how much I get, however, I used it for like 2 hours and the drain was consistent. Oh by the way I am using the April 11th build.

    I am using the 2.2 Beast ROM version.

    I get about 16 hours out of my Adam.
    This is with constant 3G connection.
    A full 3 hours of on screen news paper reading etc on train to and from work.

    During the rest of the day occasional email checking and PDF reading.

    Hope this helps.

    Are you saying that you get 16 hours with some standby as well?

    I never took the exact time,
    but with my Adam (pQi, 3G, Beast 2.2) 50% of my energy consumption goes to the screen. Going stealth or at least reducing the brightness should go a long way.
    Another energy guzzler for me is audio-over-bluetooth.

    If I had an eye on energy consumption I guess 16hrs should be possible.
    But alas, I am an inner city child and I believe in the omnipresence of sockets - so I do not really care

    I tried the beast, but for some reason, my battery was draining super fast. Since then, I changed back to Eden.
