I'm experiencing very short battery life on my TyTN (Italian ROM) when activating push email - in a few hours (less than 10) the battery drains completely... Any idea? What battery life is expected when push email is activated? :shock:

Have same problem with WWE ROM -- I changed the schedule for ActiveSync (with it disconnected) so that during 'off peak hours' it sychronizes less often -- then adjusted 'peak hours' to as short as workable for my work days. That seems to have helped because the push email is not constantly polling my server. Hope this is helpful.

I'm sure this battery issue is related to the data connection, also when in idle: stopping push email, if i leave a browser page open so that there is an active connection, with no real data traffic, in a few hours the battery is completely drained...
This is really strange, your solution helps (already tried this) but i'm wondering why on the Nokia E61, leaving push email enabled all the day, the battery life is only slightly reduced and not so drastically...

Battery Life
I have the o2 Trion and activated push mail a week ago and the battery life seems to be very good. I can go about 21 hrs with a full charge.

If you want to disable Push Mail (for reasons that escape me), it's one of the buttons on the Comm Manager menu (the one with the little envelope).

I've seen absolutely no impact at all on battery life from using Push Mail -- in fact, I think it's substantially better than if I were polling everying five minutes for new mail...

Same here, Push email is working from day one, the only time that I was out of battery was when WiFi was on all day long.

Because WM5 can keep Wifi connection alive when the device is in sleep mode but can keep GPRS connection on (There is no Keep-Alive) while the device is a sleep. Every time the device would wake up for email the WiFi tries to reconnect and chew the battery.

Push-Email has some effect on the battery drain but it all depend on the amount of emails received.

I have about the same problem the battery life but my conclusion is that it's the push mail that pumps the battery but the UTMS !!!
If I choose only GSM network, my battery life is double with or without pushmail.
