Re: battery life. I haven't tried it yet but the solution is supposed to be using CPU-i to throttle. You have to enable this feature in CPU-i.
Re: "Doesnt seem to be stepping after kext install". You have to run update extra even if you used kext helper to install it.

Just found this post, don't want to double post, BearHunter, any advice for me on the following thread? Thanks.
Update: Took the plunge, installed CPU-i and all seems to be working okay, see the speeds go up and down as would be expected as I load the system down. One question I do have, why would anyone want to use the throttle option, is that to limit the max speed below the processor's max to really increase battery life?
