And what are you beliefs and results? I'm still undecided.
This topic has been discussed at length several times. I recommend doing a search to read the discussions that have already taken place.
Several times? More like every other day.
If were going to discuss it again please post in the proper area. Task killers are apps.
Well I am still new with my Droid but the task killer I'm currently running is working wonders for me.
I currently have "Advanced Task Killer Free" installed and I have it's widget on one of my home screens so I can click it easily and "kill" all the running apps. It has helped my battery life since I've downloaded it and it was, of course, free. =P
I call the widget by the name of "Kill Droid". xD
Just make sure to set appropriate ignores on apps that really are needed to run from time to time, like gmail, etc... personally I do not use task killers because I end up micromanaging the program and ends up in battery loss, but use it wisely.
oh man here we go again.

yea................. i must like typing lol
The uninformed. Do a forum search.
Sorry. You're simply wrong. Try the following experiment. For a full week continue to do what you're doing. Once a day power cycle your phone. And run your phone until it's below 5% remaining power before recharging.
Then remove the task killer and run for another seven days. Power cycle once a day and recharge when you are at 5% or less for power.
Record the results of your experiment. You'll find either no significant difference or that running without a task killer results in longer battery life.
@OP: Or you can just trust my word that task killers will hog more battery than their worth.
I dont use it for battery control as much, but I can tell if I have a lot of running apps the phone starts to slow down and I just kill all of my tasks via widget, think of it like a Ctrl Alt Del on Windows
You can bet, I won't do it again.
