Anyone feel like testing it out, haha... I'm lazy but would love to hear the results.
Live wallpapers will only use battery more quickly when you have the screen on. So the affect on battery life will be dependent on how much you use the phone with the screen on. When the screen is off, or when you are talking on the phone, the live wallpaper does not reduce battery life. Also, the demands of each live wallpaper are different, so battery reduction can vary from wallpaper to wallpaper.
