    Do I have to leave it on for a while before it actually starts saving battery?

    Can you provide a little more information? What exactly are you experiencing? What are your settings? Which version of the app are you using? Free, Plus, Ultimate?

    As a general answer to your question, no, but if you don't have settings setup correctly, it might not be doing much, thus not saving you much.

    heres the thing about JD, not all devices work with it. i had been using it with my Global and was getting great battery life up to 22 hours. thats with moderate usage . then as u add certain apps, it doesnt quite work effectively as u want. no matter what settings u use. if u underclock w/low voltage u get better results

    Yeah, I noticed it's not really working with the D3 good. Plus, not a fan of it cutting off my Data when the phones off cause it takes like 30seconds to turn back on. It drained my battery more then saving it. Uninstalled.

    Three types of apps I avoid like the black plague: Battery "savers", Anti-virus/firewalls, and task mananger/killers.

    The poor battery life of the D3 drove me to try almost any option to at least get through the day without a 10% drop per hour while just sitting on my desk idle. Even forked over a couple of bucks for the "Plus" version of JuiceDefender only to find the same thing...no help or even faster battery drain while using it. It's uninstalled now and I am just waiting for the OTA which will hopefullt address the battery life to some extent along with the other minor annoyances: blue photos, crazy autofocus on camcorder....

    It also slows down your device eventually. Battery savers and task killers are good for short-term benefits but they have negative long term effects
