Currently in training mode, but kind of doubtful of it's usefulness.

I feel like the cost of keeping google location on will offset the savings if not surpass it.

I never have Google location turned on so we will see....... Just the fact that there is a training mode give me some hope plus the app being specifically for snapdragon there may be some code in the app other general battery apps lack.

You need location access enabled for the app to function. I don't know why... Normally I leave it off as well.

EDIT: Also do you freeze apps? I'm trying to figure out which ones are safe to get rid of.

Yes this is true but I have it set for WiFi only.

thanks for that bit of info, haha let me know if it updates again please

I am also on houston's JB build. It hasn't caused considerable battery life loss, but under BBS, it says that

ConsiaBattery (Battery Guru) has caused partial wakelocks a total of 6062 times for 1 hour and 42 minutes.

My phone has been unplugged for 14 hours 43 minutes. That's quite a bit of wakelock if you ask me

I'm getting better battery life, although I do see it using a bit up itself, it does pay for itself, so-to-speak
