    It is any good? Does it really save battery? I am really noticing a difference today with my extended battery.

    I had to turn off data and stop the push of my emails. I set my emails to fetch every 30 minutes or I check them manually. I also set my Battery Manager settings to Maximum Saver.

    I unplugged my phone at 7:00 am this morning, and its now 1:25 pm and its at 80%. I sent some text messages, browsed CNN for news and opened some emails. I guess thats pretty good?

    Oh by the way, I love this DROD X. :icon_ banana:dancedroid

    I heard some people saying its another app running in background draining your battery. I've personally never used it so I can't comment on how effective it is. But I would say go for it if you are experiencing improvements.

    Hi Cece5702
    I also used Juice Defender app for 3 months. I also disable email fetch. I do it manual. Each day my battery last 25 to 30% longer. I am happy with it and using free version.

    I use the free Juice Defender & I get more battery life.

    Heavy phone/internet use...will still only last a day.

    Light to medium use...I get 1.5 to 2 days.

    I leave JD on the default setting & use WiFi when at home.

    Can you tell me what your settings are? I have no idea what to set it at to even notice a difference. I'm getting frustrated with this app already. Lol !!!

    The default setting for Juice Defender is "balanced." It works great for me.

    I have the battery manager set to the maximum saver mode.

    I turn on WiFi when I am at home or when I am going to be around a constant WiFi source. WiFi uses less battery life than data over the cellular network.

    I turned off the data push & set the fetch schedule for every hour.

    IMPO...its not needed. I can manually set my phone to save as much as JD does...and thats 1 less app I have to have running and actually using the battery...seems self-defeatist to me...

    Below is the Pre Rooted/DeoDexxed 4.5.573 GingerBread release with GingerJuice Theme...no battery mods, no under/overclock, with the stock battery. This is actually "above normal" use for me on calls and GPS...I am consistently getting 20+ hours out of a single charge...

    I started this thread and I'm so glad I did. JD works great on my phone. This is day 2 of installation. Last night when I went to bed at 10:30 pm my battery was at 50%. Now this is after a day of texting, Twitter, watching Fox news, MSNBC and CBS news videos, checking emails and downloading apps from the Market. I was very impressed.

    My JD status is set at "Advanced".
    Battery setting is Maximum Battery Saver,
    I turned off Data Push and have my emails set to fetch every hour.

    I had turned off background data also but I realized I didnt really need to do that, plus I cant get into the Market with data background turned off.

    so far its working really great for me!!:):icon_ banana:
