Default Juice Defender and WiFi question....

Ok, so I broke down and got Juice Defender last night. Not seeing a noticeable difference really. Did a bump recharge yesterday on the battery. Are there any setting I should know about that I'm just not finding or seeing?

Also, when I had a Samsung Jack, WiFi used to destroy my battery life. Can I expect the same with the Captivate, or is it better to have it turned on and connected?

Hi there, i use Juicedefender as well and it seems to do well conserving battery(and data).

Here is basically how i have mine:
Always give wifi a chance to connect over 3g
When locked, disable wifi and 3g(i think this is the big saver)
Turn on wifi/3g every 15 or 30 mins for 1 min to "sync"
Completely have all data off between 12am and 6am

This essentially allows normal usage when unlocked and then just periodic checks when locked.
