    Alot of x10 users seem to be using apps that are eating at their battery, but most people do not know which apps are causing this.

    So I created this thread for all X10 users to list any apps that they know eat battery very quickly, thus helping others, so they can remove the app(s) and gain more battery life :)

    EboBirthday did mine and two battery apps that I can't remember so that's not exactly helpful is it! One had a retro style dial and another was one recommended on the Show Us Your Homescreens. I have now got BatteryLife which is great.

    I have an app eating at my battery, but as there are no apps displaying in "Battery Use", I have no idea which one it is.

    My battery was lasting more than a whole day, but now I merely get 5 hours. But I can't remember which apps I recently installed

    Are you referring to "Gauge Battery Widget"? I swapped BatteryLife for it but not noticed much, if any difference.

    Cubz, dial *#*#4636#*#* in your phone pad and it'll take you to the system/phone log/info. You can find how much CPU/battery each app uses.

    Hows this for NOT eating your battery

    BATTERYGRAPH indicates, that my phone hit 1% on the battery at about 2:20am - its just died now at 3:10am

    thats 50 minutes on 1%

    yet when i first boot up, uses 5% in first hour

    LMAO!

    I think you're battery is a warrior! It hangs on for dear life lol

    Everything I own that can be charged, such as my phone, laptop, groomer, etc...they all die as soon as they hit 1%...it's like they collapse in anxiety :D

    Do you have stock battery?

    If so can you get a screenshot of your battery use + the info from the *#*#4636#*#* menu please :)

    Is there an app in the Market that displays how much battery every single app is using?

    I use system panel though on the helpful, there's way too much info that I only use 1/5 of the app, lol. There's a free version, but to get the detail information, you need to buy the app. You have 24 hours to try the app and if you don't like, you can always return it ;) lol

    You can also try Spare Parts, I've never used it since I have system panel.
