It uses a little bit your RAM so there's a small impact on battery life. That's why I use MOADB

What's that like on battery life and ram? Does it block YouTube ads? And finally and importantly... Does it work with ART?

i'm using adaway and it works perfectly, also with art. because of the way it blocks (routing in the hosts file), websites and apps does not detect it as adblocking.

As far as I remember it takes 5-6Mb of your RAM. About ART it should work (http://www.androidruntime.com/list)
