    Yes and no.

    Somethings will bring down battery life. Multitasking will bring down battery life, but you can limit its effect on the battery by actively quiting apps you don't need running.

    Thanks for the reply okay i will keep that in mind. It certainly won't cause any damage to the battery right. I am paranoid because my last device was a 1G and i t didn't hold a charge ever. I know it's old but I am paranoid.

    The battery life is only reduced when using mobile substrate add ons which run in the background such as winterboard and sbsetting and obviously multitasking
