    do apps such as juice defender or green power really work? that is to say, does it save you any appreciable percentage of power or is the saving negligible to the point where it isn't worth the time and effort to install it?

    Usually, they're just resource hogs.

    Just use your back key/button to exit apps vs home and turn off what you're not using at the time (GPS, WiFi, etc) and you'll be fine. That's what I believe poontab was getting at..

    I have tried the ones recommended. Juice defender just crashed everytime and I uninstalled. Green Power had issues and I uninstalled. The most benefit I have had is just reading through Guitarchris123's post
    Tips to Help Improve Battery Life on ThunderBolt and using the suggestions I wanted. My battery still needs a recharge at least once a day but then my S500 and husband's 911 needs high test gas and a lot of it the more we use them. So I travel with a charger - LOL

    I agree Juice defender didn't buy me much battery life so I ditched it.

    Ditto.
    It claims to have saved me .06 to .10 every time I looked at it...(percentage)
    Lots of errors with Juice Beta...didn't try green power.
    IMO..just like the task killers, they take more than they give.
