    i used plotter for a while and i think its mostly placebo effect. By saying "x2.5!!" it probably makes you think you're getting more life but i never really noticed any changed and DEFINITELY not 2.5 times my battery life. I think it's just a waste of resources and space.

    it screws with the internal settings to squeeze extra juice from your phone. I often found myself more annoyed by it than not, and after 2.2 came out i removed it to free space and realized I didn't really need it after all. 2.2 kind of makes that and task killers useless.

    Ultimate juice works well for me. The main feature of disabling data (3G) while my screen is off saves me a ton of battery. As soon as I turn my screen on the data switches right back on.

    It also checks data for a minute every 15 minutes so if for some reason I don't have my screen on I still get my emails and such.

    Juice defender has worked great for me. Love the only tries to sync every 15 minutes vs the phone wanting to sync all the time to everything. That saves me lots of battery juice every day
    I don't even look at the how much saved, how long, etc

    Turn on the feature in juice defender and check the option to only enable data when screen is unlocked.

    Then when you turn on your screen and you see the unlock slider-you won't see 3G on your notification bar.

    It works great for me. I keep my 3g off for most of the day which was my biggest battery hog.

    Yeah I run Ultimate Juice so I'm not exactly sure which features you're missing out from. I would highly recommend Ultimate Juice though.
