    Ok... how does one use Autokiller correctly? I want to make sure im optimizing my system to get even more battery than I am. Typcially I pull over 24 hours on a charge. Want to see if I can get over two days. Thanks in advance Nitsuj17 and Saps =P

    if you are pulling that kind of battery life...then id recommend avoiding autokiller honestly :)

    for me though i use it on moderate as i find in a side by side comparison i get slightly better battery life...this is probably true for me and not others as im in and out of a ton of apps a day...many of which i only use that 1 time...and it ll knock a few of them out for me quicker than android itself would.

    really though on the higher end phones autokiller isnt as effective as say the eris, where low memory is a persistent issue and you may see dramatic fc's increases without autokiller (especially with lpp)

    Total agreement here. When I used it AutoKiller, I had it on whatever the lowest setting was called conservative/moderate whatever its called. I uninstalled it a few weeks back and havent missed it and initially I almost thought it helped my battery life by removing it. Like nitsuj17 said 24 hours is all any of us want/need, IMO finding a nice uv kernel will help battery life more than autokiller ever will

    I notice a difference in speed on my phone with AK so I use it, dunno about battery. I wouldn't think it would have great effect on battery unless something in the background isn't working properly and draining it.

    I use the strict setting. You have to experiment, it depends on how you use your phone and what apps you have.
