    I am looking to find something that can help me extend my battery life. I have Autokill installed but I have heard mention of other apps that can manage running processes specifically for the purpose of battery conservation. Anyone have any suggestions?

    That's about the best out there. If you want great battery life I would say look at a ROM that has all blur removed like fission 2.2.1 or rubix something. These ROMS have phenomenal battery life. I was crying on stock 2.2 cause I couldn't get passed 4pm without plugging in and that was easy use. Now I can tether and do whatever I want and go at least all day with heavy use. or 1.5 days light use.

    Possible.

    It depends on what schedule they put it on.

    When I used JD (free version), you couldn't control too many of the battery saving options, like put it on a longer schedule, or set the night schedule, etc. So it's possible that those who don't see a battery savings were on the limited JD version which doesn't control their phone as tightly as paid version (Ulitmate Juice) allows them to do. YMMV.

    Anyway, JD gives a big number of how much battery time I have left (e.g., 17h23m), which I take with a grain of salt. I do like JD because I can set it to control when my non-essential apps get internet connection, and most importantly, with UJ, I make sure that apps that I think have no business connecting to the internet are BLOCKED from data connections. I'm pretty sure JD saves battery because all apps are on the same schedule to connect, instead of connecting willy nilly and prevents unauthorized access to data.

    I use JD in conjunction with Juice Plotter so that I can see how my battery usage is trending. Helps me identify probs immediately. For example, I found after I installed Missed Message Flasher, my phone was draining rapidly at night as I slept, which was not what it did the nights before. Everything went back to normal after I uninstalled MMF.

    I'd recommend using JD and see for yourself if it does drain more than it saves.
