Default LED Battery Usage?

Please Login to Remove!

Does having the coverage indicator on all the time use up a lot of battery life?

Obviously it uses some, but does it use a amount significant enough to shave
off hours of battery life?

No, of all things that would be the least usage.

It is a recommended tip to turn it off to save battery life.

Save battery yes, but not hours. Of course anything you disable that consumes electricity will save battery.

I know, I was merely mentioning it.
Its probably more beneficial to those using other battery drains features.
