Just found the ultimate battery saving combo xD KH3 Modem + VillainROM 2.4.2 + JeffreySpeedfrey-2.2.0 kernel! I lose a consistent 1% per hour now instead of the 3-4% an hour I got before with other combinations.

The KH3 modem definitely helped significantly!

From reading up about this problem i have found that the firmware on this phone is the reason for the poor battery problems and screen locking issues the S2 is experiencing.

The 2.3.3 gingerbread software that is on the phone has some inconsistencies that is causing the huge power usuage, but the new update for gingerbread 2.3.4 fixes this battery issue as i have read so flashing the phones bios to the new software is the best way to fix this problem.

I have read many reviews about how easy it is to do and its safe and easy.

That will fix the power drain problem once and for all.

heres a linkie for help:

rooting and finding the best rom and kernel will make your battery last 5 times longer. my g2 used to last 6hours. now i last over a day and a half and I use mine constantly for tumblr,facebook,IM,and I usually do searches on my phone. I'm using PyroMod with Pershoot's kernel. OH and I have ALL animations enabled+8 widgets with wifi on all day.

I agree, custom ROM and kernel is very important in terms of battery life.

Pulled 33 hours with over 3 hours screen time and over 3 hours playing music with wifi on facebook sync. I used juice defender on balanced setting.

RevolutionROM Kitchen v2.6 and Ninphetamine 2.11 kernel. KH3 Modem.
