    With Skype idling the current stored in battery every for 5 min period 500 mA. With Skype off the current stored in battery every for 5 min period 800 mA. Charging times were proportionately longer with Skype.

    All other bloatware was frozen with TiBu.

    I reported on day 1 that skype was a battery KILLER.
    if you're using it, fine.. enjoy.

    if you're not using it make sure to log out and kill it using Task Manager

    Or you can download the hacked Skype that has a dedicated exit button!

    Does the normal skype not have the exit button or something? I always exit skype when I'm done using it but I have the hacked version.
