I doubled the battery life on my MT3G Slide! All I did was delete the widget for Weather Bug Elite and put a shortcut to it on my homescreen instead. I went from 12-14 hours on a full charge to 24 hours plus! I don't get on-screen weather updates anymore, but I can click the shortcut and get current weather in seconds. It's worth the sacrifice to not have to carry a charger with me everywhere I go! I've read elsewhere that weather apps, even the built-in one, are huge battery drains, so I gave it a shot, I'm glad I did! The other thing I did was to uninstall task manager. Seems they do more harm than good. My phone has never run better!
