    Can someone tell me what is the best way to find out exactly what is draining my battery? Its worse now than ever. Is there a way to pinpoint what app is causing such a battery drain?

    I have Spare Parts and I'm not sure what to look for regarding specific apps? Is there a way to show what apps are draining the battery? I know it shows system information but that doesn't give me a lot to go on to troubleshoot.

    If you go to Settings on your phone...Applications...Manage Applications...And Running, you can see what apps are currently running. Everytime I reboot my phone I go in there and kill atleast 15 - 20 items. After that the phone runs much longer...just my observation.

    i know that the new popular video chat app Tango doesnt allow the phone to sleep properly so if you have that it may be causing a ruckus. check Menu>Settings>About Phone>Battery and look at your up time and awake time. if they are very close together then one (maybe more than one) app is not allowing the phone to sleep...

    You hit battery history.. You can pull down different options. That will show which apps are using battery. If you don't see certain apps? That's because they are not using battery. It will only show the ones that are using battery in CPU, Network, Partial Wake, etc.

    Settings | About | Battery | Battery Usage

    (or something like that, don't remember the exact names).

    It will show you energy usage per app.

    Once the phone was in my pocket and it felt really warm. Apparently some app (car locator radar) kept sucking power even though the phone was in standby mode.

    Avoid any "task killer" apps too...(!!)
    They will be constantly running and killing apps that are
    restarted by the OS, thus killing the battery, causing rebooting and
    not allowing the OS to learn how to properly manage its memory.

    I downloaded Battery History and the main battery culprit just says 10144. All the others have names. How do I find out what 10144 is? I click on it and it just says Partial Wakelock:10144
