    I do understand push notification uses more battery. However, I am not sure having many notification will drain battery much faster or not.

    Like others, I have and enjoy beejive notification. Despite the fact that it consume more batter, it definitely worth it. It seems like more and more app have notification. For instance, assistance, also have notification. If one already have notification on, will turning more notification significantly decrease the battery performance?

    more apps with push notifications on -> more push notifications sent to your phone -> less battery life

    Yes, but they all use the same persistent connection to the same server..

    so having 20 notifications pushed to your phone every hour would use the same battery life as 200 every hour?

    Yeah, because every app pushing something every hour. If you want to look at the worst case scenario then yeah, the use of cpu cycles and turning on the screen will cause more of a drain. The difference is the cost of the persistent connection itself remain the same regardless of the number of apps currently connect to said connection. Once you have one push app installed the cost of connection should be the same with 200.

    It's like push emails, or pull with shorter time interval. The more you push/pull, the more battery it drains.
