    Question is anyone using the app Carat? It's a battery app. I installed it but the only thing the app is telling me is the model of the phone and the os that I'm using and I already know that info. Just curious if anyone is.finding the app more useful.

    Thanks ram. I just looked again and my score was 12. App said it could be from phone with big battery using it inefficient. But the hogs were superuser, titanium back up. I don't think this app is very useful

    I've gotten rid of a few hogs. I had a flashlight widget I dumped and a call blocking app too. I replaced them with a better, lighter app. The next to go is a one touch cache cleaning app. The rest are Adobe Reader, play store, and a Sense clock widget all of which are staying.

    My score was 86 a few days ago, and is now 77. 1weather (which shows temp in not. bar), ultimate custom clock (widget), adwlauncher EX, SD Maid, and Dolphin HD were the top offenders. No surprises except SD Maid, which I must have been using a lot during that first period. The "Hogs" that are showing up now... fpse shows up on the top, but I never use it. I'm fairly sure the reason my battery life has dropped a bit is because I installed Hoot Suite and Tweet Caster, which wake up my phone a LOT (that plus more people with better Droid 3 battery life submitted their stats)

    It's nice to know that everything is working as intended, and it's free, but Elixir2 + Better Battery Stats is how I dramatically increased my battery life. The strange results I'm getting in the second round of feedback is... strange.

    It started telling me to enable apps that I never killed. Play time is over. I uninstalled it.
