Default Battery Draining Applications

Please Login to Remove!

I tried to search and couldnt find any answers.
Does anyone have a list compiled of the applications that drain the battery the most?
Has anyone tested the storm with different applications installed to see battery life before and after install of applications?
Thanks

depends on which apps are you using? have you installed 3rd party apps other than those which came with your device?

I should have been more clear.
I was inquiring about 3rd party apps and their effect on battery life.

I haven't come across a complete list but there are known apps that are worse than others. A complete list would be nice, but you can usually pinpoint the culprits pretty easily when you see the battery indicator draining too fast.
