    Hey guys, I've noticed that with the release of software 3.0, applications use less battery now.

    I've been playing Let's Golf on my iPhone 3G for about 1.5 hours straight, yet, my battery bar still shows that its full. Before the new software update, my battery would've been half empty by now.

    Have you guys noticed it as well? Or is my battery bar screwed?

    My iPod's been charged since I downloaded it about an hour ago, so I wouldn't know.
    A little bit off-topic, but will the battery drain noticeably if I keep the bluetooth on?

    Yeah my battery drains slower too. I played peggle and galcon for a good 3 hours, (galcon online too), and had over 3/4 left.

    Thats definitely not possible for it to still be 100%. All I know is that Baseball Slugger Home Run Race 3D rapes my battery but its worth it. Just too great of a game to stop playing because of a thing like the batter life. Outlets are everywhere.

    I know it's not possible for it to still be 100%, but my battery bar shows it to be completely full. Is my battery bar screwed then?

    Well, it could be because my iPod says I have 82% left then I lock it and open it back up and it says I have 76% left. Weird..... :confused:

    Is someone very sure that os 3.0 really reduce battery consumption? If it really does then I might consider upgrading my iPod touch.

    How do you check what percentage of battery you have left? Or is it a feature only on the iPod Touch?

    if you jailbreak it you can have an option to display percentage instead of a battery bar. well that's how i check...mine is still at 2.2.1 so i dont know...

    my battery goes down and back up. like if i shut it down at 100 and turn it back on, it will be at 80 something. then it goes back to like 96 and then back to 100.

    same thing if i play apps and then go to music. the battery will go back up as i play music...

    It really sucks for me.:( It sucks for me because my iPod is broken and my battery life is going willy-nilly. I'll open it up and it'll say 52%, then I open it up again and it'll say 100%. I hate that.:confused: Then my iPod times-out and gives me this solid white screen with blue and purple bars. I'm going to my local Apple Store tomorrow and I'll hopefully get it fixed! ;) It really hurts being not able to play my awesome games. :( :p :( :p :(
