I noticed that after installing 2.5.18, my battery life was severely worse than before. When installed, my battery capacity was at 80%. 9 hours later (most of which was idle), it was down to 18%, decreasing to 16% while i was watching it. However, the really freaky thing was when I connected it to a charger. It said "charging", but continued to go down! By the time I came to 14%, I felt I had no choice but to revert to 2.5.11, as I was unsure what would happen if it was completely discharged, and unable to accept charge.

Hmm can also be a battery (hardware) issue ?
im at 68% and 10h36m since charge also most if it is idle time.

i agree with oyvinga. v2.5.18 does drain the battery a bit faster during normal usage, especially duing internet usage as compaired to prev versions.
i dunno may b due to new transitions added(which r really cool, miui feels soo much more better n cooler :D). or something else?

we would need some expert advice, please. :)

It could be, but reverting to an earlier rom fixed the problem, I've had no unusual battery drain since I went back to 2.5.11. So I think I'm staying with that rom until this friday.

I installed 2.5.18 with full wipe.
No battery drain.
On third recharge cycle, it is giving really very good battery timing.
