    I was running my screen at full brightness and it was using 83% of the battery. So, I lowered the setting to where it's almost off and the screen is still using 80% of the battery. Why run the screen this low if I'm only saving 3%? Any thoughts?

    Check the total amount of battery usage, not the percent. 80% of 100mA is a lot less than 83% of 600mA.
