    Do you leave bluetooth on? Does it actually hurt battery?

    Why would you leave it on if you are not using it? No, leave it off. It will drain your battery if on. Anytime you have another radio on you use more battery.

    But isn't it that if you leave bluetooth on, it doesn't go into discovery mode unless you explicitly ask it to 'scan'? So, essentially it doesn't use more power if you just leave it on.

    I only leave it on when I have my headset with me. If I go out for any lengthy period of time where I'll be away from a charger then I turn it off, like when going to a Concert or hockey game.

    I use the free Juice Defender app in market place, to automatically turn on my bluetooth when I connect it to a power source (Car kit) and then automatically turn it off after 1 minute of it not being connected to anything. Super Convienent!!

    I leave mine on all the time. There is no extra battery drain that I can notice.

    I didn't know that it could do that. I guess I will download it and give it a try.
