    i downloaded a vista theme (not the se7en theme) today and it seemed as though my battery was running out much faster. do certain themes use more battery than others?

    I don't believe so, but a theme developer will chime in hopefully. Some use more memory, and a animated theme would use more battery.

    If you really, really like it then you should get a spare battery. I got one for $2.65 from amazon or overstock.

    Ya, I paid more for shipping than the battery! It works great!

    Do a google search, you will be amazed.

    I really really doubt just using a different theme drains your battery faster. Even an animated theme is not animating 24/7, so the drain would be minimal at most.

    Make sure you're not doing something else that's draining the battery faster. Are you keeping more apps open at the same time than you usually do? Or maybe Bluetooth or GPS? There's a lot of things that can influence battery life, but I'm almost certain themes aren't one of them.

    On another note, I also say spring for the spare battery! :P

    I've never had it happen to me personally, but I have heard many people claim that certain themes do that to their phones, so maybe it's true...
