    sigh ... well, this partially explains why my phone lasts maybe 8-10 hours, tops time to start killing off unused/unnecessary apps.

    Android app ads account for up to 75 percent of battery drain

    Granted, most app ads probably don't fire off unless you're actively running the app - but with all the cruft I've recently found running persistenly on my phone, who knows

    Ads also account for memory leaks, at least in Words with Friends. With Ads, the memory requirements for WWF would jump from 40M to 160M (requiring a task kill). Without Ads, memory requirements hover in the 40M-60M range, no kills.
