Default [HELP] CarrierIQ and Battery Life

I noticed my battery was draining rather fast today and I noticed that Google search and carrier IQ was the 2 top culprits when using wake lock detector? I think I figured out Google search just have to disable some things but can I just delete the carrier IQ package or its there like a mod to get rid of it? By the way I have T-Mobile G3

I guess I should of also asked is it safe to remove and is this the only package that makes up the carrier IQ?

It's easy to remove but as mentioned above there are many threads on this. It's not just one package either
