    Best Battery Life ROM?

    Hello everyone! I'm new here!

    I love my Atrix! The stock gingerbread Rom is fantastic to me. I can't get over how beautiful the icons and dock look.

    But one day, I was strolling around the web, and somebody mentioned that they're using Homebase rom or something like that on their Atrix. And they get 3 DAYS of battery life with "Heavy Usage," he said.

    Is this true? And if there is such battery-life-saving rom, do they look a lot like the stock gingerbread for Atrix? Custom launchers can'tget nowhere near the look of the stock Rom IMO.

    There is no way this person is doing "Heavy Use" and getting 3 days battery out of it. I'm gonna go ahead and call BS on that one. lol.

    I'm using HomeBase myself and I could only get two days on standby.

    They are basically stock-ish but can be themed. The bloat has been removed like att navigator, att barcode etc etc. Homebase comes with a launcher though because the dev likes it that way. Honestly, I just use a launcher, Launcher Pro.

    I managed to find the forum where I read that from.

    [Q] noob with atrix on alien4 - xda-developers

    and the member's name is wsison23

    "A few I myself have tried are CM7, HomeBase and Aura. I use HomeBase as my daily driver. My battery life has been pretty good. I usually get around 36 hours with pretty heavy usage of streaming music and videos."

    So... that's BS?

    I just don't wanna be left out if you guys can get great battery life..

    hahaha.. yea I thought about that. But the guy said 36 hours of heavy usage... I work 12 hrs shift a day.. and pretty much turn off my phone while I work. So, I should be able to get that??

    And is it still possible to stream music and videos for 36 hours on a single charge????

    You do understand basic battery theory, correct? You only have a finite amount of battery life following a charge. The more you use it, the faster it will discharge.

    Good explanation.

    I use Battery Monitor Widget, and religiously follow the mA and mW discharge rates. When the screen is off, I used to be able to get down to single-digit mA draws on the battery, but after trying a few different ROMs, (RedPill, DarkSide v1.4 and now 1.5) now I can only get down to 40 or 50 mA. I'm checking partial wakelocks with BetterBatteryStats, but nothing's jumping out at me.

    Who else has had experience with this?

    ... Bueller?
