Default Anyone know if/how much power is taken....

Please Login to Remove!

When you leave the bluetooth on all the time? Even if a device is not connected?

Should it matter at all? I just hate HATE turning the BT on everytime I want to use my headset on my 8800.

Ideas?

I rarely ever turn off my BT. I notice no power drain leaving it on and not connected.

It is a second radio transmitter so it will draw some but from my experience not much if not active and in use transmitting. when not it goes into standby and waits for a connection.

Mine's on all the time and I don't really notice a significant drop according to the battery meter FWIW. However, I do charge nightly. It might make a bigger difference if you're one of those users who insists on running the BB as long as possible between charges...
