Does having multiple exchange account pushing eat more battery?

    I've always had my work email push via exchange, but with the new feature of multiple exchange account I decided to push my personal gmail account as well. Will pushing two use more battery than just pushing one and having the gmail fetch every hour? Or if I'm pushing one already, I might as well push another?

    It would definitely use up more power, but I doubt you will notice the difference when you add a second account.

    Push gmail eats up batteries faster then it should. Maybe 30% less life with gmail going.
