    Ok so I've noticed today after putting juice defender on my razr the back of the phone getting pretty warm...kind of odd
    or normal? Battery was at 30%..... I just got a silicone case for it today...do ya think its just not letting the heat
    dissipate? When this happens should I shut the phone down or just leave it be?

    Android phones tend to heat up sometimes, espcially with the power running through that monster.
    If you were playing a game/streaming video/any other antenna or processor heavy action, its normal. If it was just sitting, screen off, no foreground apps, then you might have a problem.
    If the phone gets into the excessively hot (110+), I would shut it down, but moderate heat isn't a problem.
    On a more personal note, I don't like juice defener (or task killer) type apps, they interfere heavily with the way android natively runs, and because android was made to be a MOBILE operating system, it was built from the ground up with multitasking and battery life in mind.

    The only time I've noticed mine get warm in the 5 days I've had it is when I was doing some heavy web surfing. I would think the heat would dissipate fairly well with such a thin body, but then again...

    Is Juice Defender some sort of "task killer"?

    Yeah, the idea of Juice Defender is to have it turn things on and off when needed. I got it for my OG Droid, but I never saw any battery savings. For example, it would turn my WiFi every so often to see if there was a connection, even in places where there was no WiFi. There's lots of customizing you can do to the settings, but even though it said I was now getting 2X my battery life, it lasted the same as without JD. YMMV as others will swear by it.

    I use JD to toggle wifi on/off for one minute every time I unlock the phone. This way when I am home smart actions picks up I'm home/work and starts. if not it toggles off wifi for me.
