    What apps actually drain battery life?

    Im curious about the gmail and regular mail, and ECOBUZZ app?

    What's the best app I can download that will tell how much power an app is using?

    Well when I've had Ecobuzz as a widget for a while now and when i check battery usage the Ecobuzz widget doesn't even show up.

    I take it as its not using my battery, right?

    Unless an app is misbehaving, it's your particular usage that kills the battery. E.g. if I browse a lot, it will drain my battery. If I use apps that use the GPS receiver a lot, it will drain the battery. Etc.

    What does your Battery Use screen show? Start by tackling the ones it indicates as battery hogs. I really don't get why people think randomly applying "fixes" is the way to troubleshoot...
