    If Been Messing around and i Found out some ways to get you battery to die normally than faster than usual

    -The reason for this is that when you open up an application it continues to constantly run in the background even after you hit the home button. More intense programs such as the NES ROMs app can really cut into your battery life.
    To prevent your battery from really taking a hit after you use an application don’t just tap the hold button, hold it down for about 5 seconds and the application will quit for good. It will no longer run in the background and your battery life should last much longer.

    -a lot of apps run in the background. Install SBSettings

    -Turn You Brightness Down a little. To Where you get comfortable and your eyes don't hurt.

    - Download SB Settings Swipe Down at the Top of your Screen and a Settings Like Menu will come up, If SSH is Green(On) Click it to turn it off(Red)

    - Turn WIFI off When your not using it that really drains the Battery (obvious one

    And how exactly are you getting programs that are sandboxed to run in the background on 2.2 without using backgrounder?

    Check what you have installed as well since some stuff runs constatly and may not show up similar to how ssh works.
