Default Encryption + Battery Life?

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone ever noticed a drop in battery life when the filesystem and memory card encryption are enabled on their 88xx device?

I had Media Card encryption turned on with 8830 and I didn't notice any drop in my battery life I still went 3-4 days without needing a charge (One thing I miss when I got my 8330)

That was with OS 4.2.2.
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.
