    Disabling Sync and only turning it on when I want it has drastically improved my battery life. No exaggeration, it's doubled.

    Yah I was surprised, I turn it off while I'm at work, and re-enable at lunch or whenever I have time to respond to emails etc.

    Isn't there an app that controls when your phone syncs? you could choose like 1min, 5min 15min, 30min, etc?

    I'm going to give this a try. I don't mind hitting refresh on gmail and I don't use any apps that require syncing. Thanks for the info.

    two words.
    Juice.
    Defender.
    Even the free version is enough for me.
    it does exactly what you're saying. trust me. you'll love it.

    Some people swear by Juice Defender. But my battery life went up 50% when I uninstalled it.

    YMMV.

    Could it be that you are in fringe area and disabling sync prevents your phone from having to locate a tower constantly?

    I notice this if I'm in a basement or a block building where my phone will sit there and fluctuate between 1x and 3G.

    The only thing I ever have synced is my work and google calendars. I never push emails, I just check them when I feel like it. Likewise, I leave GPS and Wifi off unless i'm using them.

    All adds to battery life without sacrificing anything important. When i'm at work, my business emails show up on my computer and my personal emails are never so important that I need to be notified the instant they arrive.

    when i was using cyanogen 6.0, they had this Data enabler on the power control widget. For bugless, it doesnt have that but i downloaded the switch widget which comes with all those switches. That helps you save EVEN MORE battery. When you dont want to use Data, you turn that off and you'll receive phone calls and text messages. Turn it on whenever you feel like.

    Its basically what juice defender does but you control the data.
