    This is something I have a problem with... I haven't even activated service, and without using wifi or any internet anything, I still can't even pull 24 full hours out of the battery. I know this will at least be cut in half once I activate service. When going somewhere with wifi I always bring my cord so I'm not sure how bad that affects the life.

    And so, what is/are the best ROM(s) for battery life?

    I'm not sure you can expect a full 24 hours out of a smart phone. I use Fission rom and my phone lasts for a regular work day, but I got similar battery out of the stock rom. The last time I could go more than a day without charging was on a flip phone.

    Fission rom gets great battery life, but for added performance from your battery use JRummy's overclock app in the market, you can undervolt to save battery life and under clock you CPU to 800MHz. you wont notice much of a difference at all. But you'll see vast battery improvements.root is needed

    I'm running GummyJAR and the battery life has been SO much better than what I was getting with the stock ROM.

    60% by 9:43PM sounds like Fission is a winner.

    Not sure about what rom to use but try Juice Defender to help battery life.

    Agreed. Since I switched to GummyJar I've noticed an increase in my battery life.

    ive used fission roms and now using apex 1.3.1 on my d2.. both have shown much better battery life than stock moto ui..apex maybe just a weee bit better on the battery life. but again also depends on how much you use your device..

    i have the extended battery, i used it before switching to Fission while on stock Rom, but now Fission is so battery efficient that i dont even need it. The only time i use my extended battery is if i am going backpacking and i want to have a solid 2 days worth of battery life for pictures, video, and weather

    awesome, thanks guys.

    I'm planning on getting the extended battery, for both the lifespan and because in pictures it appears the handset would be more comfortable for me with the slightly protruding battery cover.

    I'll try out Apex and GummyJAR, and attempt Fission again (it was unstable when I tried it, though it may have been a random one-time problem)
