    How do you tell what is draining the battery the most?

    I have the application SpareParts. However, for usage it shows the application...but just because I use one application longer than another doesn't mean that's what's draining the battery (ie - using the video player for one hour is most likely going to drain more battery than using GMail for two hours).

    And then under battery usage, it doesn't break it down by application...

    But on the market I see people saying "50% of my usage was from this app" etc etc.

    My battery usage breaks it down by application for each percentage.

    You are talking about the one in Menu > Settings > About Phone > Battery Use correct?

    Oh damn. I downloaded that application "SpareParts" ...I didn't know you could find it out from the system information.

    When it says "WiFi 10%" does that just mean having it on 10% or actually using it?

    Damn I need a shortcut to this ...

    The native function for checking battery is the way to go. It will break it down by apps for you
