    So I have my Pre+ now, but the battery life have been abysmal. I metadoctored up to 2.1.0, and I was pretty happy. With the screen on the battery life has been abysmal, though. I lose a percent per minute pretty much. UberKernel at stock speed and screen brightness on lowest setting. I have my sync settings to use data less often. Don't know what to do. Is there any way to save more battery without going back to 1.4.5? If I have to, I suppose I can go back but I really prefer webOS 2.0. For now, I'm back to my Thunderbolt. Unfortunately I can't worry about not having my phone actually be functional for communication.

    At least it won't quash my dev hopes. If I have to stay on android, I hope Open webOS comes to Android hardware.

    EDIT: Welp, I need a new SIM before I can go back to the Bolt.

    Thanks. I'm also making sure I properly calibrate the battery. I did buy this "new" but I want to make sure I know how healthy the battery really is. I'm also not sure it's set into it's own calibration, so to speak. I've only been running it down for a few days. I had 30% left 2 hours ago, with heavy usage (on purpose to test) I'm down to 5% just now. So maybe I'm just wrong? Seems finicky.

    Some vaguely scientific tests I did:
    Test 1 was heavy use: constant we browsing and screen on. The only variable was the UberKernel profile. Profiles used were 500/1000, 500/800 (both screenstate) and default. Profiles switched after 10 minutes. I found no significant battery drain rate difference between them, each losing about %5 during the 10 minute test.

    Test 2 was light use: screen on and off with text and GTalk. Same profiles and times used. The 1000 and 800 lost about %3 after 10 minutes. I found that the default profile had only moderate battery savings at %2 in 10 minutes.

    GAS was off and sync times are set pretty far apart. Any tips on what I should do? Is this bad battery life?
