    Simple answer: no. Neither widgets nor notifications uses a lot of battery.

    However, to be clear, if you're referring to simply having notifications on (for any/all apps), then I'd assume that yes, there is some amount of battery being used to display them (e.g. notification appears on lock screen = probably-super-small amount of battery used).

    If you're referring to the Weather and Stocks widgets, then no, I imagine that having them in your Notification Center uses no additional battery.

    All in all, I wouldn't worry about it.

    But Location Services, that weather widget uses can... Just disable it and set your weather to where you live.
