    I don't know if this belongs here in the Apps forum or the Hardware forum, since it involves both the Mobile Hotspot app and the battery. Anyway, I have the free hotspotting from Verizon, but I have a question (I had two but forgot one LOL). When I use the mobile hotspot, does having multiple tabs, pages, or browsers open on my laptop drain the battery of the Pre faster than if I only had one browser with one tab open?

    If/when I remember the second question, I'll post it.

    Thanks!

    To answer your first question, I would imagine so.

    The answer to your second question is...42.

    It depends what those tabs/windows are doing. If they are all sending/fetching data simultaneously, then the Hotspot will have to handle more packets, so will do more work, so will drain the battery faster.

    OTOH - if the tabs are all just displaying pages, there will be no network traffic flowing, so minimal battery drain.

    (Note) Keep this in mind: Anything involving using the pre battery will drained it. Regardless if you are actually using the application or not. Battery drain starts once the screen is on. Have a nice day.

    usually when my battery gets low, I just recharge it.... It's really not that difficult. Answer to question 2 is 44, not 43
