I thought you couldn't root 2.2 yet, at least not without going back to 2.1 first.. Is that still the case with this? I rooted far enough to do S-Off..
Second - is this a one time thing that needs to be done, or does it need to get done daily to get better battery life?

A lot of work. I charge my batteries externally. I have an external charger and two 3500 mah batteries.
Once the battery is charged and the light turns green on my external charger I leave it there for a few more hours. When I put it in my phone it stays at 100% for a LONG time. But if I was to charge the battery up in the phone it would not stay at 100% that long.
The solution if you don't want to root...
Charge the battery up until the light is green. Turn your phone off. You'll notice the light will now be orange. Let it charge to green again and when you turn it back on it will stay at 100% for a while.
But I do not like that method because during the 20 minutes or whatever it takes to charge back to green while the phone is off I might get an important call or text message. Especially the call I wouldn't receive.
Invest in an external charger. It's worth it. Can always have one battery charging while the other is in use!

Are you rooted?
If not, you can't do this.
If you have S-OFF, you can use Root Explorer to make this change and then just reboot the phone (power off, power on) unless you have Quick Boot and skip the adb commands.Active Phone: T-MOBILE - Samsung Galaxy Note 3 - Rooted/Stock

Re: Battery Life Fixed! Try these steps.
And S-off is having nand unlock. No its not something in the market. You need to be rooted to achieve this then run toasts nand unlock from simpleroot (step 2)HTC Shooter

From my experience you only need to bump charge so many time and it just kind of "sticks" for a certain amount of time. I did it for about 3 days and didn't have to do it again for about a month.

Yeah I know. But sometimes people are in such a hurry to share they don't search or read, same problem different thread lol.
In clockworkmod it does EXACTLY the same thing in the advanced menu it says, "Delete batterystats.bin".......there is only one thing to do you either leave it alone or delete it, nothing magical about it. As a matter of fact from reading several pages into the whole mess on several websites, months ago, everyone came to the same conclusion that this 'trick' doesn't help everyone. So it's a shot in the dark, worth trying, but a shot in the dark. Most of it is placebo, unless you phone has a charging issue.The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich.

Mine was so bad that I wouldn't make it from 8am to Noon. I drained my battery completely and bump charged it a few times. I also installed juice defender.
I left work yesterday at 6pm with a full charge and never plugged it in. I lasted until around 10am this morning at which point it was at 10%. So I've gotten a huge bump.
I ordered the 3500 battery to fix my issue and it will be here today. But since I don't have an issue I'm expecting the 3500 to last a few days now!
