    Can you recommend a good app for detailed battery usage? I find the built-in app kind of limited.

    I always use battery indicator pro, and there are several good free and paid battery apps on Google Playstore.

    Is that the one from Darshan Computing? Do you know the difference between the Free and Pro versions? What do you especially like about it?

    Go Power Master (GPM) looks quite comprehensive. I already use Juice Defender so GPM is probably overkill, but definitely a good looking app, thanks.

    BBS looks like an in-depth tool - not free, but not expensive either. I'll keep it in mind, thanks.

    Good god man, uninstall the juice defender. The new versions of android don't needthat sstuff and they all just muck up your system.

    Juice Defender is not having any negative effect on the phone and I don't see either GingerBread or JellyBean automatically doing what Juice Defender does. Can you say more about why additional power management is not needed and why it will "muck up" the system?

    Someone recommended juice defender ultimate to me but I'd love some feedback first before deciding if I will get it. It looks complex to me

    I always thought it sucked up quite a bit of battery, is that not the case for you or has it improved?
