    Does anyone know of an app that measures which apps use the most battery? I tried using various battery meters, including Battery History, BatteryLife, Battery Time, and others, but none of these seem to have this useful functionality. Anyone?

    What about Menu > settings > About Phone > Battery Use? Already built into your phone, you can put a shortcut to it on your desktop, and honestly, I've never desired more than the amount of info it gives you...tells you exactly what uses the battery...even for cell signal it'll tell you how long you've been without signal, which should give you a good idea of why it is hogging the battery so much.

    I guess I'm looking for something a bit more detailed, such as ones that includes background services like polling. Trying to see which apps may have hidden services and drain the battery needlessly.
