Interesting! Will check this out. I use JuiceDefender but I'm not 100% happy with it.

Left my phone idle for a few hours after charging, then in power setting checked the battery usage. Changed the settings of the applications with highest usage. Activated power saver on "disconnect 3g when sleeping"

My phone idle battery usage is about 1% per hour.

Using stock kernel JB

I think this may have been causing my phone to reboot, possibly as a result of conflicts with my custom kernel. Since uninstalling it and going back to JD, the problems seem to have gone away (and my battery life has improved).

Since this is still in beta, I'd advise anyone else to wait unless you feel like being a guinea pig.

Yeah, I was about to report back as well. A couple days after install I got stuck in a boot loop. Had to restore to a TWRP backup. DEFINETELY do a backup if you experiment with this app.

Definitely not ready for prime time. My phone is far more stable with this thing removed.

If you need and app that manage 3g when screen is off I'd suggest "3G Manager"

It's paid but it's worth the money and it's compatible with all android 2.3+ devices

The app description tells me it's for all Snapdragon devices. Well my "HTC One X" is powered by a snapdragon, but still the play store won't let me install the app???

If you have the HTC One X your phone is powered by the Tegra3 CPU.
