    They waste more than they save.
    Don't bother.

    Agreed. Your best bet is to underclock your processor via an app like setcpu.

    Juice Defender practically doubled my battery life.

    Try it.

    I didn't like juice defender because it kept disconnecting my 3g and then my phone would have to look for 3g again and again. I just put a monster battery on my droid x so that I could surf the web for a long time.

    There is not really a battery saving app that's going to go as far or be as efficient as a rom like rubix. Roms employ a lot of task governors from the base system so you're really not going to get much better than that. I've found I've always sacrificed functionality for battery life, especially with those apps.

    As far as generalities go, the primary drains are going to always be the screen and network, so just get a brightness widget! Haha

    For what?
    The two biggest drains are the display and the network - 3g/WiFi et cetera.

    You are going to shut off your phone? or the display?

    Best Battery Saving App is Tasker -- because it's not really a battery saving app but you can use it to help you solve some of the issues you might have.

    It's not for the faint of heart, however, and it helps if you are a closet programmer. :rofl3:
