Battery Life EB01
So I'm running EB01 with SC 2.1. Prior to this I had DL30 and didn't notice any of the battery problems other members experienced. I just charged my battery to 100% this morning and 5 hours later I'm down to 67%. Is anyone else experiencing awful battery life with EB01?
I tried wiping my battery stats, closing all widgets on other launchers (I use LPP). And I can't find the battery life how-to thread, can someone link me?

For those of you with battery issues, there are three different methods of improving battery life that people are reporting having some success with. The first two are in posts #1 and 12 in this thread:
I didn't have any success with those, but this third method has worked for me:
Follow the battery life thread instructions about charging to 100%, power off and keep it charging til it hits 100% again, turn it back on, charge back to 100%.
Then power off, reset battery stats, and run your battery down to 5-7% off that single charge. Plug back in, and charge back to 100% (preferably with the phone off, like overnight).

+1 to that third method, that's how i've been doing it.
I had not so great battery life since DL30, but i flashed SC2.1vd last night and so far this is the best battery life i've had since i was on DL09. I've been keeping an eye on my running services and only keeping the necessary apps running... that drastically improved my batt life.

I installed EB01 yesterday morning and this morning is the first time I have put my phone down for more than 30 minutes. I have fallen 9% in 3 hours Which is close to DL28. I used to go 10 hour days with little use and would have 75% left.
Here is the odd thing: my number one user is the WIFI. I never even used to see it on the list. Cell standby and display were always on top. Did the phone change the list of items for battery use or is the WIFI suddenly using much more power?
Any ideas why the high WIFI battery use?
My phone is de-Verizoned and has minimal apps running. (same as DL28)

I'm extremely disappointed in froyo on the Fascinate. Wait...that's not entirely true...I love froyo...I HATE the battery life. I've tried everything I can think of to fix it and it's just lousy compared to DL09. I could go all day with DL09. I'm sitting at THREE hours and I'm at 57%. I did stream some stuff via bluetooth...but no more than 30 minutes. I would say my use has been light to possibly medium.
I've tried going all the way back to stock and installing again...still an issue. I even kept it on DL09 a bit yesterday to make sure I wasn't imagining it. I lose 2% in an hour. With froyo I'm losing anywhere from 8 - 15% in an hour.

I was having problems with battery life when I first installed too but I was able to fix that by doing the following:
Charge the battery to full.
Turn the phone off while still plugged in.
Unplug and restart the phone into CWM.
Go to advanced and wipe battery status.
Reboot and do not plug your phone into USB or any other source of power until the phone dies from low battery. You want the battery to the point that the phone will not even boot.
Now charge the phone over night.

I changed my Fascinate's wifi setting to never sleep when plugged in. I am guessing that this will allow it to sleep when I travel and have no wifi signal but when I am at home sleeping and the phone is on the charger, the wifi should stay enabled because battery use doesn't matter while charging.
Sounds like the best option to me.

Ive also noticed diminished battery life on eb01, dl30 I could go to work all day 12 hours and still have 80% when I got off at 7pm. Was quite impressed I'm going back to dl30 I think. I unplugged my phone around 7am this morning down to 80% already with minimal to no use. But then again I'm a newb and probably need to adjust something who knows...
