    I have just the Droid, but I have Advance Task Manager (not Killer) and System Panel.

    I don't use them to kill apps (they do other things as well) as I let the OS take care of that. I figure it knows more about what should be going than I do.

    I see other threads that actually say the App Killers can adversely affect the phone performance, battery, etc.

    I uninstalled my App Killer based on those threads this morning and my phone lasted well through the day into the evening. The battery for me seems to last a while, you just have to make sure that you have your Battery Manager settings properly set.

    The biggest drain is keeping the brightness on the HUGE screen on this thing down whenever possible. Put the phone into sleep when you aren't working it also helps. Also, if you haven't done so already, let your battery "die" and then charge it to 100%, so it "learns" the thresholds.

    The app killer running (will consume battery) and constantly killing apps (that are going to reopen any) will consume battery.

    Your best bet for battery life is to avoid task killers. They are not needed. If they were, Google would have included them in the Android OS.

    The best task killer is the one that is already built into Android!

    seems not to be working all that great, went to the store and THEY recommended task killer, not sure why, guy re-installed it and it showed 25 task running already.

    phone reset itself a while ago while I was in the store.
    not sure what the hell was that about.

    Had my Droid X since Friday. Battery life was wizzing by so I spent today with Tech guy at VZ store. He went into Advanced Task Killer and set auto kill frequency to when screen is off. Now find very few apps running and battery life has improved.
