Sip that precious juice with Deep Sleep Battery Saver for Android

The Deep Sleep Battery Saver app is out in Google Play today, and its creators want to think it is the most versatile battery preserving application out there. 

The app keeps your device in deep sleep mode most of the time when not in use, thus sipping on that battery juice as little as possible.

In this regime most everything is off, including 3G and background apps, so your handset only maintains connection to the most frugal network bands, and wakes up rarely to accept some push notifications, then slumbers back, as you can see in the concept algorithm above, drawn by the developers.

There are 5 profiles to choose from in the basic version - Gentle, Balance, Strong, Aggressive, and Slumberer - with each increasing the time between short wake-ups for push notifications. You can also whitelist apps such as the music player or set a deep sleep block if data traffic is above a predetermined threshold.

In the PRO version, which is $1.29, the user can go into even more granular detail with custom profiles - for example, have different weekday and weekend settings, and set different radio and sync mode switches. Naturally, both versions sport a simple on/off widget, and notification bar presence.

There are much more tweaks and adjustments to play with, depending on what exactly you can make do without when the screen is off, so you can check out this versatile battery preservation app from the source links below, and visit the XDA-Devs thread of the developer for some insider info.

this app uses less wakelock then JD so that drains less energy then JD during screen off (see on XDA Thread listed on the post)

correct me if i'm wrong but juice defender turn off the data and everything after a period of time and continues to turn it off until the screen is turned on. this apps gives a period of time for background apps to sync and enable the phone to get recent notifications

There app has different profiles: use Balance profile if you want to get recent notification every one hour or Slumberer if you want to see notification only when screen on. Other profiles uses other periods as well (said 30 minutes, 2 hours, etc,.)

After testing it overnight, it sucks up more juice than without it. Uninstalled.

Could you try other profile, such as Slumberer to see if it works. Thank you.
