    "As they arrive" usually sucks the battery down much faster than
    polling because it requires being on the network more often.

    flcabrio posted this in another forum. I can confirm that when I uninstalled Yahoo contacts, my battery power returned to pre-update levels, and may actually even be slightly improved.

    I was very happy with my battery life before I added Yahoo contacts. I could go about 2 days without having to charge. As soon as I added Yahoo contacts, my battery started draining like crazy, so I ran a little experiment.

    With Yahoo contacts added:
    11/14 2am - 54%
    11/15 7am - woke to dead battery. (only 5 hours later.....not good)

    Removed Yahoo contacts:
    11/15 10:30am - 95%
    11/15 6:30pm - 70% (8 hours later.......much better)

    Readded Yahoo contacts:
    11/15 6:30 pm - 70%
    11/15 10:30 pm - 24% (only 4 hours - Definitely draining fast)

    Removed Yahoo contacts and recharged

    11/16 7am - 100%
    11/16 3:30pm - 76% (8 1/2 hours later - good battery life)

    Yahoo contacts is definitely the culprit. I really wish it would work, because I use Yahoo for everything, but I can't be charging my battery every 4 hours. Palm still has some work to do.

    According the Extending Battery Life Tips (sticky) post, that is the best option for battery life.


    Mine has been horrible as well since the update, just removed my Yahoo account to see if that helps.
