    So I have been using beautiful widgets for my last 4 Android phones, and have never had an issue with it hurting my battery life. I Love the customization, and how I can change the look and size of my weather and clock daily. My question is this, is anyone using BW on the TB and still getting really good battery life? I'm very curious, and would hate to give up such a beloved app to conserve this already horrid battery life.

    I have BW, and horrible battery life. but BW shows as only 2% usage.
    My phone is at 50% after 3 hours in my pocket.

    Been running the phone stock since last Thursday other then about 25 programs and games installed but only using HTC widgets and getting 6am - 11:30pm battery life and still having 20%+ left. Last night I installed ADW Ex, Beautiful Widgets, Handcent and Dolphin Browser basically eliminating then use of anything HTC and boosted my brightness up from 30% to 50%. Will report back with how much more battery drain I see...

    I just did a Hard reset, what do you know fast boot works now! I think I have 4 culprits that may have been eating battery...BW, Vibrate tools, traffic buddy, or power Amp! Going to run free of all 4 for a day, then add one by one and see who is eating all the juice. I hope its not BW, its one of my favorite apps.

    fast boot hasnt worked on my phone yet, i will have to try it after a hard reset before i add apps. something is conflicting though

    BW shouldnt be the battery drain but it might be the fast boot issue
