Hey, I've had a try at using so many different launchers including go and nova however they all seem to drain my battery at an amazing speed. Is anyone else experiencing this? Am I doing something wrong ? The only one that doesn't kill my battery is the stock one

I use the Nova Pro launcher with my GN3. The only issue I've had is that it froze up a couple of times while I was going through the settings. A reboot fixed it. Otherwise it works well. I haven't looked at numbers, but I think it actually increased my battery life.

I've never had poor battery life with Nova.

I'm chipping in to agree with others about Nova. I've been using it since beta and have never seen any issues with battery drain or resource hogging. It's exceptionally well written and handles resources frugally. I'd look somewhere other than your launcher for the cause.
It might be worth you installing GSAM battery monitor app and posting results of running it after a day or two. It will help work out what's draining your battery.

I mentioned this in another thread...if you use a launcher you might want to take widgets off touch wiz screen as widget use battery to sync current info quite frequently...so if you dont delete widgets you are running double clock, double weather, double f.b. etc. If this is not true or old school thinking someone may chime in and offer more help.
Also your point about setting up the launcher and having the screen
on while doing so is a good one...that will use a lot of battery.
