    How about the fact that it's communicating with a radio tower that's miles away, versus a wireless router that's usually less than 50 feet away?

    Good point on the tower thing.

    Edit : what about my case of WiFi. I've got several APssetup with DHCP and my D2 is constantly getting new IPs as I physically move around my network. (My WiFi covers about 3 acres this way.) Wouldn't getting a new IP every few minutes take its toll on a battery.

    I wouldn't think so. It's less the transmission of data that uses battery and more the transmission of data across a distance. I mean, I guess that could use up a bit more processor time, but I still wouldn't think it'd be that much.
