    I've never used live wallpapers before because the stock ones are not worth using, IMO. I recently downloaded a live wallpaper that either comes on the Droid X or Droid 2 and I really like it, but I have to think that live wallpapers probably eat battery life.



    Is that a good assumption? Do live wallpapers put a pretty good hit on battery life? Even when the screen is off?

    In my opinion/experience, the live wallpapers really dont have a huge hit to battery life.

    Thanks. I think I will try the Droid Eye live wallpaper for a day and see what happens.

    Hey Joe, if you get a chance, please leave us a posting like taz and let us know if they're a battery drainer. I imagine some are worse than others. Thanks guys.

    I'm using Beautiful Live Wallpaper and Beautiful Widgets, and I don't think it's made a sizable impact on battery life. I would say it's insignificant compared to, say, running wifi or Bluetooth in the background. I'm actually more concerned with CPU usage...
