    I dunno if this should be in the all about root section or not... But I wanted to ask.

    What battery saving apps and/or task killers do you recommend? I have used all of the "easy" apps, and greenpower premium, along with es task killer.

    Only problem I've ever had with the battery savers has been data not turning back on unless I restart my phone

    I personally use ES Task manager, simply because ES makes my favorite file explorer. I don't mind having to turn my data back on in the morning, it's about tripled the battery life of my phone.

    I'll move this to the main Admire forum. More people will see it, and battery savers usually don't require root access.

    Use Go Power Master...

    It's amazing... i tell my story.

    Charged phone to 100%, unplugged, 30mins later turned on Alarm mode (Which can auto start/stop at specific times if chosen) Woke up about 8-9hrs later battery lvl was at 98%!!!!

    Can add custom mode and choose between modes via HOME from the widget...

    Great app shows statistics about battery lvl and more... Great! Try it out give a thanks when you see how great it is...

    Hello there!
    Advanced Task Killer Pro
    Keeps the phone running nice and smooth. Plus, the instant optimization widget is very useful. Doesn't forcefully shut off the phone, which is good. A battery-saving compliment would have been nice, but hey, program does everything is says it does and it's very easy to use.Without this app your android battery life has no chance, works great on my Admire

    I use "dx toolbox -app2d+task killer". Under the internet mode, if running only a couple of apps which need wifi update, vitality only uses about 1% power per hour. If under the standby mode (no wifi),whole night only uses 2-3% power. You also can customize each mode, or create your own "self-defined" mode.

    Stay away from task killers. Those dont make your phone any faster or save any battery life. Task managers are ok though. Try to leave the phone with the lowest light level as possible when you are gonna leave it alone for a long period of time. Wifi accounts for about 60% of battery loss so try to turn it off when you arent in a wifi zone.

    I recently switched Go SMS and I was very impressed with the setup and interface, so another Go product caught my eye. The setup of this program is also very impressive, and I will report on B&A battery stats.

    Agreed! When the Captivate first came out I was advised to use a task killer, but I eventually learned that Android is not Windows - and remembering that we're using a different operating system will help us get the most out of these great phones!

    I don't recommend any of them. With my first Android (Huawei M835), I used both Advanced Task Killer Froyo, as well as JuiceDefender.

    While using both of these on separate occasions, I continued to plug the charger every night because there wasn't much power left in the battery anyway, so using the apps made no difference.
