    Does using the ipodtouch's multitasking vs a 3rd party application make any battery difference? ( Like proswitchers, backgrounder, and etc. )

    Kind of, the 3rd party ones usually use more power.

    The stock multitasking is iOS4 sucks cause it puts everything in the multitasking, even if you don't want it. So I think that uses more battery.

    I think it does because 3rd party multitasking is legit...you go right to where you were in the app....apples multitasking sucks in my opinion because its not really multitasking its kinda like an app shortcut.

    I use Backgrounder and Kirikae on 3.1.3, I don't have any significant battery drainage when multitasking.

    Except apps that have been in it for ages are auto killed, and apps that don't support multitasking just sit there to look pretty

    iOS 4 is native, and is made to use little to no RAM saving power in the long run. But every app is multitasked, and do get autokilled when needed. You can quit them manually.

    Backgrounder uses more resources and thus uses more power. However, you can decide what apps are backgrounded, and what apps aren't.

    I am pretty sure that the native way to do it usually is the less power consuming one and the most efficient.

    There's only one backgrounding tweak, it's called backgrounder. The other things are just a GUI for backgrounder. To save RAM, I'd use the default. If you want to go a little bit fancy then get ProSwitcher.

    But things like ProSwitcher, Circuitous, Kirikee, etc, all require a way to multitasking as they don't do this themselves. So you'll either go native, use backgrounder, or mix both.
