    Welcome Fleetster!
    Thanks for joining and yes, Task killers are not needed as the Android OS does a fine job itself managing apps and RAM.
    So you are correct....no task killers needed:)

    Welcome to the community :)

    What Mike is saying is correct. Typically Task Killers actually drain more battery than save, just because the Android OS is used to taking up that much RAM and when you stop/kill the process it usually tries to start that process again.

    Hope this helps and thanks for joining :D
