    Just curious.

    I know that Wifi saves battery when you are connected, but if you are not connected to a wifi network, does it drain the battery very much?

    I am curious because I often leave wifi areas for anywhere from a few minutes to 4-5 hours or so.

    Thank

    On my Z30 I've left everything on, wi-fi, location services etc and I can still pull 2 days with reserves.

    WiFi is always on for me. Battery life is superb; can last a couple days with moderate use.

    WiFi is always on for me, and I can go 1.5 days without charging it (I am a heavy user.) I turn off location services and bluetooth when not in use, as those used to burn my iPhone battery and I'm shy now.

    I always have Wi-fi on except when flying. I can go well over 2 days on a charge. Battery life is not an issue for my Classic.

    Every Connection type drains battery. In case of WiFi though on the Classics it is not really noticeable...so you are save to leave it on. As mentioned before the position check is more heavy on the battery, so leave it off when not needed.

    I have an unlimited data plan using LTE which is, ironically, FASTER than our regular Internet (remote area).
    So, I have Wi-Fi turned off all the time.

    I used to have to turn it off all the time on my old Z10 and definitely noticed the difference. On every device since, I can't say I notice a difference.

    A battery saving tip:
    What does seem to save me a bit of battery though is leaving LTE off and just connecting through 4G which is plenty fast for me (I don't really notice any difference whatsoever in browsing speeds, including music and video streaming). The only thing that I found LTE awesome for was large downloads and the odd time that I've downloaded a large file straight to my device, I've used it. In the real world usage that I seem to put my devices through, LTE speeds aren't really that necessary and when your phone is constantly bouncing from LTE signal back to 4G, you'll feel the drain on your battery more than you'll notice any other difference.
