Default Juice Defender Ultimate settings

I just purchased Juice Defender Ultimate for my Galaxy Nexus (gsm) and would like to hear your recommended settings. The Ultimate version has many possible settings and it would probably take years to try all combinations I'm hoping that others can offer a few suggestions. As a starting point I tried the ones recommended in post #4 here:
JuiceDefender Ultimate Settings???
plus I added CPU switching so that CPU slows down in idle mode. As an aside, JD offers a 1 week money back guarantee so I'm also hoping to determine if the app actually does conserve battery power.

I usually kept the Wifi setting disabled just because i liked always having my Wifi on, and if you are using Google Voice to text over Wifi then this could be an issue of not receiving texts.

Otherwise i usually just kept the settings standard as none of the other ones really effected me or what i wanted to do.

Thanks. According to another link I read, leaving WiFi on is actually recommended since it doesn't use much power unless apps are accessing it. I do see a lot of options that sound like they could save battery power, but the only valid way to test them would be one at a time and that would take a very long time to come up with complete settings. There's even a setting to switch into 2g mode while in Idle to save power, but that requires a different ROM.

It all depends on how you use your phone and how often you want to get notifications. In this kinds of apps, the best settings for a person isn't necessarily the best for everyone else. For example, my settings does not save as much battery as other settings, but it does keep my usage relatively convenient for me.

Thanks. Are you using the Ultimate version? I understand and agree with what you are saying, but the point of my posting is to get advice about some of the really advanced options unrelated to schedule. The Ultimate has many very advanced such as slowing down clock speed of CPU and even switching to 2G when in idle mode. As another example, you can designate WiFi sites and it then stores the location of each. When in the zone of your WiFi sites it logs on, but otherwise does not attempt to connect to WiFi. I was hoping that someone had blazed the trail so that I would not have to test each and every option individually. For example, maybe some of these advanced options have a negligible affect or even increase battery consumption. As an another example, I have read from here:
The Truth About Your Battery
that just leaving the WiFi on continuously saves more battery power than switching it off and on at a schedule. Their claim is that WiFi draws very little power by itself except when apps are accessing it. Therefore the goal is to be sure that you don't have misbehaving apps that access WiFi when you don't wish them to. As you can see there is a tremendous amount to research before one can really say how effective this app is. One might even conclude that optimizing it is not really possible within a reasonable time-frame

I am using GreenPower, not JuiceDefender, but the premise is the same.

Personally, I am not a fan of underclocking, and I don't mind leaving 3G on. As I said its entirely based on how much you are willing to sacrifice your battery as to having your phone run as well as it should.

As for not letting apps access data when you don't want them to, its as simple as turning off background data in the settings.

Thanks. I mentioned those examples only to illustrate some of the advanced options having nothing to do with schedule. I evaluated Juice Defender, Green Power and 2X Battery. The latter two are comparatively simple in terms of available options. I disqualified Green Power for the following reasons:
  • Limited 24 hr money back guarantee (too short) compared to 1 week for JD
  • Can't test compatibility with Cerberus in Free version like JD and 2X
  • Does not include built-in log like JD and 2X
The key purpose of the posting was to hopefully hear how effective the various advanced options of JD are. Once I know how much can be gained, I can easily make the decision accordingly.

I have started to test how my desired notifications work in conjunction with JDU. I use LightFlow to turn on LED for desired notifications. Tests were based on whether the LED turned on at the correct time. Here are my results so far:
1. Calendar Reminder: works
2. Alarm Clock: works (does not use LightFlow)
3. Missed Call: works
4. SMS: works
5. MMS: not tested
6. Google Voice: works
7. Words w/ Friends: not tested
8. My Data Manager: not tested (does not use LightFlow)
After consideration I will not need notification from K-9 or Gmail. I will check emails on demand. I found these results to be very encouraging. It should be noted that I was running JDU in the customize mode with Apps disabled. The customize mode is much simpler (ie, fewer options) than the advanced mode.
