    I found installing patches to shut off data, GPS and adjust brightness and also to set minimum brightness much lower made a big difference on battery life. It's still pretty bad, but if you're on wifi (or don't need data) there's no point having data on, and there's absolutely no point having GPS on if you're not using a geolocating app.

    Turning the brightness down to 25% or so helped a lot as well, and was surprisingly bright still.

    Also pick up Dr. Battery just to keep an eye on your battery's health, and remember to run through a few full charge/full depletion cycles to condition it. That alone gave me 10% more after a few goes.

    F14 for 1.4ghz is the best OC kernel. Install the advance patches and behavior and options patch and tweak it all with tweaks.

    I don't use facebook chat. So I don't have an answer for you. Sorry.
    .are people overclocking the pre 2 and is it worth it, if so what kernels?
    I am not overclocking. I really don't feel like I need to. It's plenty fast enough as it is.
    .exibition mode?
    It's ok. I really like the agenda mode during the day. But I've had to move my touchstone off of my nightstand at night. I can manually turn the screen off in exhibition mode. But as soon as I get an alert overnight, the screen turns back on and stays on - lighting up the room. There's an exhibition mode app called "Nightstand" which helps a little by putting up a black screen. But even a black screen is pretty bright in a dark room. I wish there was a way to inform exhibition mode to turn off the screen rather than display one of the exhibition mode apps.
    .what patches are a must install on the pre 2, what's your Favourite patches?
    Since going to the pre2 I've been running stock, with the exception of a few homebrew apps from preware. So no patches for me.
    .top apps, favourite apps?
    Koto music player is pretty good. As is Amigo, which has a exhibition mode app. I really really miss NaNplayer. None of the webOS 2.x music players that I've found are as good as NaNplayer was.
    .best settings for battery life, ie email settings?
    Honestly, I have really not worried about battery life since switching. With my Pre-, it was a non-stop battle to find a charger so I could get through the day. But I've not had that problem with the Pre2. I get through the day pretty easily w/o needing a charge.

    thanks people, this phone rockssss

    yes there are more Pre2 users out here, I've got a Verizon one, myself

    1. I THINK there are messaging plugins for the standard Messaging app that will let you use Facebook chat, but I'm not sure if they're 2.0 or 2.1 specific. Will have to look in to that further.

    2. I haven't bothered overclocking since I haven't had any speed issues to speak of.

    3. I'm still on 2.0.1 (no official 2.1 from Verizon yet) so I don't have exhibition mode on my Pre2

    4. Disable Charging Alert Sound/Notification, Advanced System Menu, Close Slider To Hang Up, Date In Top Bar...

    5. Carbon or phnx for Twitter, Facebook, Clipboard, Forums, The Weather Channel, Today's Tasks.. I know there's more but its early and I haven't had my coffee

    6. I haven't had to worry about battery life much with the Pre2. It's only an issue if i'm in a low signal area for an extended period of time. If I have solid signal all day it's not uncommon for me to still have 40% or so left after being off the charger from 6am to 11pm.
