    So like most of you I am very conscious of my battery usage. Yesterday, I went into Weather Bug (free version) to check the weather and accidentally hit the menu button. Decide to check preferences for the heck of it and I see "Enable Updates' set to yes and Update Interval set to every 1 hour. What?? I know it's probably not a huge drain - but I had no idea that it was checking on a regular basis (and why I don't know). So please check your apps to make sure they are not updating data auotmatically! After that I went into every app I had to make sure I was either signed out or or set updates to manual.

    This is why I installed JuiceDefender and then bought Ultimate Juice (it's paid version). It cuts off data except during certain times (like for 1 minute every 15 minutes)

    I have heard good things about Juice and Ultimate - I think it's time to give it a shot. I'm finding setCPU is really helping prolong battery life...

    That's your weather update interval like how often it checks the weather.
