    will enabling vibrate on key press (when you hit a letter or anything it vibrates) drain or use any battery?

    Look, everything you do on your device uses battery. Operating the vibrating mechanism is going to use more battery than, say, generating a sound when you press a key. And clearly, turning vibration off means you won't be using the battery to power the vibrating mechanism. So is it going to cause drastic battery drain if you keep it on? No. But if you're trying to squeeze every last drop of battery power out of your device, then turn off the vibration and the sound with keypress. I would also turn off vibration when the phone rings and vibration with notifications, if you're concerned about it.

    Why do you even ask this question and who was the mfg that told you it wouldn't?

    Thank you, but I have another question. Does it use any more battery power than just having sounds on? Because if not, I kind of prefer it.

    Welcome to Android Central! If you're asking if vibration uses more battery than just having sounds on, then yes, it will use somewhat more battery. The more the vibration goes off, the more battery will be used.
