    Maybe my settings are off but my battery life has dropped. Initially I thought it was my live wallpaper or Helix 2 but It read "display 65%"

    I know I have done something wrong cuz I have read Screebl SAVES battery life.
    Tips?

    screebl does save it. but if you have ur screen incredibly bright then screebl cant do anything and you battery will drain super fast. screebl only keeps the phone on when the screens at an incline and turns it off quicker when not.

    Of course, it doesn't do a thing for you as long as you're looking at the screen. And if you spend hours staring at that live wallpaper or sliding from one homescreen to another, it won't help.

    Just be sure your timeout setting on your "Sound and Display" setting is set to 15 seconds. And then put the phone down once in awhile. :)

    yes what he said

    Screebl doesnt IMPROVE your battery life as you may be assuming

    it only turns of the display when not in use. thus conserving it

    Your screen display should always be the largest percentage of what's using your battery. As mentioned, nothing you have mentioned sounds out of the ordinary.
