    I know that in 1.6 a nice nifty battery usage monitor in settings that tells you which apps have drained what percentage of your battery since last charge, but what about 1.5?

    I've got something draining my battery and its driving me crazy. Also, is there a way to switch off the 3g battery hog? The relevant settings are locked in settings. Man we need a root -_-

    You need 2 things. #1 is Dev Tools and Spare Parts, they must be installed with the adb workaround. That will give you the battery tools you need

    #2, Then download and install Quick Setting from the market. It can turn off data.

    You could try System Panel. It shows the resources that each app is using.

    For battery info you can use AnyCut to create some shortcuts that give you detailed battery info and battery history. For the battery history you want to select Battery History from the list of activities available in Any Cut.

    This is the screen youo get for battery history.
