    I am not on CM7 but i'm running on 1.42 mod. I am wondering if this is a normal issue. I wanted to get a usb thumb drive to watch movies and shows from it. I decided to test out my external drive which is a (westport 320gb hard drive i think). the issue i have using the external hard drive is that after a 20 minute show, my battery drains 20%. i watched movies streaming (netflix,hbo,max, etc) and my battery doesn't drain that much. I was wondering if a 16gb thumb drive would have the same effect as my external hard drive.

    A thumb drive would use a lot less power than an actual HD. I would try a thumb drive, for sure....

    Ok..just completed a battery test on my A7. I'm using CM7 currently. Mine died right at 3hrs. 60% wifi/YouTube ..20% audio ..20% ereader
    Hopefully Dexter will come out with a brightness control patch soon so the battery will last a bit longer. Personally the brightness is set a bit to high for me.

    +1 - I hate not being able to control the brightness at all!!! Would be awesome if that could be fixed!

    For the time being(Just as Long As you Have Chainfire3D), You can download Chainfire's app called CF.Lumen(Free). Similar to nightmode on Chainfire3d but more custmizable. I add a widget on my homescreen to tap when i want to tint my screen. Just my 2 cents

    Actually, I've been using an app called "Lux" (which I also use on my Asus Transformer)... What I've found is that the light sensor doens't appear to work propoerly int this ROM either, so even apps like Lux can't automatically adjust the brightness like it usually does.

    However, in this case , I think that apps like Lux and the one you mentioned don't acutally lower the brightness, they just "filter" the screen to make it appear dimmer (but it still uses the same battery power, I believe...).

    FYI - I use Lux on my Transformer becuase the built-in auto-brightness is absolutley horrible on the Transformer. With Lux, the auto-brightness is actually useful (and customize-able)! Lux can acutally raise and lower the real brightness on the Transformer....

    Thanks for the input!

    Any help here would be great. My a7 is now only running maybe an hour to 1 1/2 hours on a charge. Have been usuing it daily and only charging when it's under 20%. 1 1/2 years old. dissappointing.
