    Is it just me or does the Hero with 2.1 seem to use a lot more battery that when it ran android 1.5?
    And are there any tips/apps to help conserve battery power?

    In my opinion, i think its draining quicker. I am not a heavy user of the phone but i think the battery life is a bit shorter, maybe once i stop playing about with it and downloading all my apps again it might settle but i am finding i am charging daily now

    I had this problem and started to use the juicedefender app that switches from 3g to 2g when your phone is turned off, also turns off your WiFi and a few others but you can get the free version or the app where you dont have to pay for. I would advise try to the free one out with the widget, that tells you how much battery you have saved.
