Touch Pro Registry Hack??

Recently I have applied the following registry hack to improve battery life...


Prolonging your battery life
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Drivers\BuiltIn\Battery]
"PollInterval"=dword:4E20 (hex) or 20000 (decimal)
Default is 5000 (decimal)

The first time I did this the phone kept freezing up and I was having problems with my data connection.

I tried it again and the phone seems to be working fine but I am not seeing any difference in battery life. Has anyone had any luck with this or any other battery life reg edits?

To date I have not seen a successful battery saving app, cab, or registry edit. Sorry.

Re: Touch Pro Registry Hack??

each reg tweak may add a few %, combined, my battery lasts noticeably longer than stock. its still a cdma device, which uses more power than gsm, and the battery is still capable of what it is capable of, and that is all.

I agree (unfortunately)

You'll see some wild claims for these tweaks, but they're all BS.....

Re: Touch Pro Registry Hack??

the only things you can do to improve battery life is put backlight on the lowest settings and turn wi-fi off.

This just changes the amount of time the phone polls the battery which will increase battery life alot. The above quote is true as well. I have both of these done on my phone and I get great batt life.
