Default Battery savings with BT off

Please Login to Remove!

What would be the savings of

BT on with no device connected vs. BT off.

What about BT on with device connected vs. BT on w/o connection

I'm assuming from most to least power usage

1) BT on with connection
2) BT on w/o connection
3) BT off

Any thoughts?

Default BT Off

I am getting a seat of my pants feels of about 10% battery savings with Bluetooth off. I normally use a motoH700.
