    No app can save the battery because the app itself will take energy to run. It goes against the laws of science if an additional app can reduce the battery consumption. However, the battery saving mode that comes with OS 7.1 lower the screen's backlight, hence saving the battery.

    I found the best way to save the battery is to lower the screen brightness, stop the auto refresh of FB, Twitter, RSS, etc feeds (you will still get push notifications) and turn off the wifi.

    I would not buy a battery saving app.

    Use Battery saving mode in 7.1. Built in and is free...

    At first the battery saving mode in 7.1 was set to be enabled when the battery goes down to 30%; however, I, just now, chose to set it to "always enabled". Let's see if it actually makes a difference.

    At first, I had mine set at 30% also, but then I set it to 70% and it does make a big difference in battery life. Maybe I'll set it to Always enabled like you,

    Can someone give me a batter app that puts the battery icon in the banner?

    Also I had meterberry and that for some reason was draining my battery.

    no, never trust these kind of battery saving apps. They just dont work and you'll waste your money for nothing.. If you're on an os 7 device upgrade your os to 7.1, then you'll get battery saving mode made by rim themselves.

    They are as useless as "memory-freeing" applications. lol

    Battery Watch in App World puts the current % of battery remaining on the home screen. I had an older version without the ads, but I can't seem to find that version anywhere.
