    I'm just curious. Post any and all thoughts.

    When do you turn it on?

    Do you run it even if the battery isn't low?

    No real right or wrong way of using it--some do it only when the battery is low, others do it when they might be in an area of worse reception or at a time when they are using the phone more, others do it right from the beginning just to get that much more out of it all the time basically.

    We'll I can't see it making any difference on my device. In 90 mins of my phone being on standby whilst playing football tonight it lost like 17% in LPM also when using the device within minutes it lost 3... 21-18% This is the exact reason I switch of the percentage to stop worrying . Now I'm wondering perhaps LPM comes into full effect below 20% so putting it on sooner does little to nothing?..

    It helps more when you are not using your phone as much, and less so when you are using it often and/or for some more intensive things. I've tried enabling it from 100% just to see what things are like at the end of the day, and with LPM I've gone through a day with having more than 60% of battery left, when with similar usage I'd usually be down around 20% without LPM.
