Last night when I went to bed I was at 50% battery — this was with two GMail accounts fetching every 15 minutes. I’ve turned NuevaSync back on as a fetch service to test battery life today.
I think something is wonky with push. My yahoo account was set to fetch, but I think the push setting was overriding it . If I’m not alone on this, it might explain why the APIs for push on non-Apple apps was yanked from the latest beta.
Since I don’t need my calender updating constantly, if it saves on battery life fetch is fine.
I’ll report back tommorow.
