[Q] How much battery does leaving NFC on consume?
Just got my Nexus S a few hours ago and would like to make use of it's one unique feature: NFC capabilities (with the NFC Task Launcher by krohnjw).
However, using NFC would be much more of a hassle if you had to manually toggle it on every time you were to use it, so my question here is simple:
How much battery is estimated to be consumed if we leave NFC on indefinitely? I'd assume less than leaving BT or GPS on but an estimation by anyone who has any data would be much appreciated.
I can stand maybe 1% extra an hour but anymore than that would be inefficient to the point where it would eliminate any advantages of using NFC at all. I value battery life highly.
