Biggest battery hogs:

- Screen
- Processor
- Radios (3G, Wifi, GPS, bluetooth)

You can't do much about the first 2 ones, unless you don't use the device at all.

But you can have Juice Defender to manage your wireless connections while you're not using it.

The thing i heard about Juice defender is that it keeps your battery good during idle mode, but when you start using your device your battery percentage drops rapidly?
I;m not sure if that's true or not.

The free Juice Defender will manage your mobile data (3/4G). While the device is idle, it will shut down the connection, and, if you set it up for it, it'll make a quick connection each 15/30 min to refresh your e-mail, facebook, twitter, and whatever is set to auto-refresh.

While the screen is on, it will restabilish connection and the battery will be drained as it would if you didn't have JD.

That's a common mistake, JD barely takes any system resource.

Tapatalk is the best forum browsing app. Well worth the $1.99 charge. Especially if you visit multiple forums.
