    Is there a list of hardware and software that drains power somewhere out there? Like from most to least? For example, backlight, gps, handcent, etc.

    Thanks.

    There are probably hundreds of lists, and thousands of threads on the battery. Your best solution is to invest in an extra battery and a charger. It will take the stress out of trying to figure these things out.

    No matter what you turn off or leave on, the fact is that Droid, and I don't care which one, sucks a lot of battery juice. I suggest Amazon.com for the battery and eBay for a wall charger.

    I'd like to see such a list, too.

    Good post.

    Peace and Love,

    In order of likely current draw (depends on model and for the most part order is an educated guess)

    Screen
    CPU + GPU
    GPS
    Camera Sensor
    3g data
    wi-fi
    Voice, network usage
    LED light (could be higher, never seen power draw specs on a cell phone flash/LED light)
    FM receiver
    Bluetooth
    Speakers
    RAM
    System memory
    mic
    accelerometers
    SD card
    ambient light sensor
    magnetometer
    Status LED
    proximity sensor

    Apps increase power usage by increasing the power draw of one or more of the above, explaining the effect of all apps would take a ridiculous amount of text
