I'm on 2.3.5/matr1x-2.6.35.13/cm7 nightly

I am wondering what rom or kernel i should switch to; but tired of switching over and over again. I'll switch if it works though. also not sure what volt i should b using. Some dont let me play games and stuff; it'll freeze up and shut off on me.

Try getting off nightly, it might be it's because it's experimental.
Try either oxygen 2.2.2, or Deck 1.3d those are the best ones I've used.
Deck is based off cm7 so same customization.

As for the battery, the NSG4 is designed to stop at about 94-95% it keeps the battery healthy. Pretty much anyphone you charge up to a 100, youll notice it drop down to 96% really fast. At 100% the battery is near over charged and can damage it. So don't worry.

Thanks for the response. Based on batt life alone I'd get rid of this device; cause it doesn't last long at all. Worse than my evo. Id run to the photon if i had the money. I'll load deck rom later on . Thanks

I have 1.3d and matr1x6.5 now whats the recommended method for backing up your apps? I have found that google backs them up "sometimes" and then theres the chance it doesn't.

After coming from the Samsung Epic 4g and the battery life we wish we had this is great on nexus. Most of your problems could be coming from running the nightlies including poor battery. I have been running cyanogen mod 7 stable and matrix on stock setting (100~1200) and I average about 20 hours on a charge with reasonable usage.

I recommend as others have said to stick with the stable build roms and kernels instead of the nightlies and beta kernels and you will have much better results.

most samsung phones do not charge to 100%. it's supposed to work that way. it's a feature that helps to extend the life of the battery. Not the charge life but how long the battery lasts and continues to work.

what it does is charges up to 100% but will just say "charged" not 100%, then trickles down a bit and then charges back up.

try a new kernal too, try matrix, the cfs version, or the universal netarchy 1.3.7. if your really concerned about battery, these two things can help the most:
underclock your phone from 1000mhz to 800 under decks rom go to advanced settings>performance>CPU settings and adjust. for the Governor chose SMARTASS its for battery saving and keeps good performance. Secondly, if your in a place with 0-2 bars, turn off mobile data, it helps ALOT. if your not gonna use the internet on your phone turn off wifi, and mobile data. With Deck, you have the option of putting a mobile data on off widget in the status bar which makes it really easy.

Under-clock the processor down to 800 MHz. Much better battery life. If you use a stock-ish ROM (GPA17, Oxygen, deck), you shouldnt notice any speed issues. I still get a 2200+ quadrant score.
