Really bad battery life with the latest kitchen?

I wonder if anyone else is having this problem. Since I flashed with a rom from the latest kitchen, my battery life is horrid when talking on the phone. Last night my phone went from 70% charged to beeping at me to charge the battery during a 20 call. The other day I was on a call for about 35 minutes and went from 90% to 20%.

I haven't run any tests but I did not notice this happening until the latest kitchen came out. I normally use the phone about 30 minutes a day and am used to coming home with ~60% battery life.. now I come home with 20%.

The latest rom I cooked up has very little in it, it's very basic. Wifi, Beam, Data, Bluetooth .. all are turned off. It's not until I start using the phone that the battery drains quick.

I'm using radio 1.41 and have been for months.

I've been running a rom from the latest kitchen for about a week now and haven't had any battery problems. I've read through alot of the threads on here and don't remember seeing any one else having problems with battery life so it could just be the age of your battery. I had the same problem after about 9 months and ended up getting the phone & battery replaced.

Absolutely no way my phone stays charged the entire day...i ALWAYS have it plugged in no matter if i'm at work or home...

Everyone that i personally know with 6700's has the same problems...i only "hear" people on the internet say they don't...

I have 2 phones. Mine is used hard. Wife goes 2-3 days between recharges on hers - no email checks. Mine, no push, but 2 IMAPs, make it thru with 70-40% after 16 hours off charger, with no to light (2-3 minutes) of voice and 1 hour internet use, plus 2 hours mp3 playing daily, WM6.

My battery life is almost twice as good as it was. Same battery as before now last almost a alf day longer. I charge my phone all night, Take it off between 5-6 AM, then that night I put my phone in flight mode at about 11PM and take it out of flight mode about 6 AM and it last till around 2-3 PM. I was lucky to make it till 9:30 the first night before WM6 with the power saving registry edits.

My battery life was bad with the latest WM6 kitchen. I flashed back to the first WM6 version and it is better now.
