    I have the Droid Bionic. I was wondering if Juice Defender is worth getting? Why or why not.

    It did wonders for my original droid, but when I tried to use it on my Bionic, problems ensued. I had to get rid of it to resolve a host of connectivity issues.

    It's probably good with newer/faster devices as it lags really bad with my OG. But it improves battery really good. Most of the time its doubled - 2.x

    Ultimate is a lot more effective

    I use juice defender plus and get almost two days from extended battery using custom settings with moderate useage and alot of screen time.

    I also thought JD was causing connectivity issues but I had the same problems for the first month I owned the phone.

    I do get an occasional slow wake from sleep connection that an airplane toggle corrects. this may just be verizons issue

    Using JD for a couple of days now. Had to turn off having it manage WiFi since it took too long. I am seeing some connectivity issues as all radios are sometimes turned off while the screen is on. It did it just now while in the droid forums app.

    Also have ultimate and will keep it for now. I think it helps but the free version is probably good enough
