    I usually have the refreshes high )6 hours instead of 2) with every widget that updates like this.
    My suspect for a drainer is Facebook, the BIG Twidroid widget, and I am not sure about the picture frames.

    Any input/experience?

    Well I don't know about sucking battery life, but I found that if I'm trying to play the Homerun showdown app (whatever the name is) that I have to remove the Beautiful Home widget or the game is laggy as hell even at 1.1 oc'd...

    My favorite game :D I have the Advanced Task Manager widget on my desktop and always hit it to free up memory before Homerun Battle. I has prevented the lagging. My guess is live wallpapers also contribute to battery drain.

    Believe it or not the LWP is not bad at all - it just causes lag for Helix2

    What kills my battery is the fact that I can't put the stupid phone down... :p

    What kills my battery is when I have 1x reception.. that reception search is a definite killer.

    I only have 2 running widgets, one which i cant consider a widget.. Beautiful Widget and LWP. Im o.c at 1ghz with bekit.

    Still trying to figure out how to maximise my battery usage...hmm
