    when I turn push off my battery drains more. I would think that by turning it off will save a lot more battery life

    that's just your email. unless you get a lot of emails to your iCloud account, i don't think it would make much of a difference to your battery life.

    When you disable push, do you enable fetch (and at what interval)?

    Push setting is like the lobby of the hotel you are staying at calling you to let you know there is a package waiting for you downstairs vs Fetch setting which is you going downstairs to the lobby every 15, 30 or 60 minutes to check if a package arrived for you. Push saves more energy (battery).

    Well, in good part it depends on how many packages you get and the frequency of their delivery.

    The other side of it would be the lobby calling you every 15 minutes about a package arriving(Push) vs. you going to the lobby after 1 hr to pickup 4 packages(Fetch).

    Yeah, that too. If you see a high volume of e-mails it's best to turn push off and go to an hourly fetch instead.

    That's not bad, shouldn't be all that tasking on the battery. Do you generally only get a few emails, or is it often a lot most of the time?

    OK thanks guys I'm not just talking a bout email I'm talking a bout the whole iCloud contacts calendar everything that's in iCloud. Will it save me more battery to just turn push off and Fetch maybe like every hour

    It might, depending on how often things change with your mail, calendar, contacts, etc. There really isn't one thing that will work better or worse for everyone, it can differ for different people, and often enough the difference might not be much of a noticeable either way.

    the "push" setting is just for iCloud email. doesn't have anything to do with iCloud contacts, calendars, etc...

    I believe it applies to all services and components listed in the "fetch new data" settings area.

    Actually it does push events to calendar, notes, reminders, etc.

    Nope they call you instantly for each package with push.

    The downside for you is having to stand by the phone - expending low level energy at a constant rate - and answering every call - expending a little bit of energy each time.

    So as others have said but continuing the analogy... Someone who gets a lot of packages might find answering the phone every minute might use more energy than going up and down the stairs but less frequently.
    Lol love this analogy

    Actually it being merely a call isn't clear enough- it should be someone running it up for you- with you constantly waiting at the door

    In my scenario a package was arriving every 15 minutes and the lobby was calling immediately(Push) vs. the lobby only calling once per hour after all 4 packages had arrived(Fetch).

    Everyone got hung up about package delivery, we all missed some more obvious things and next steps. ;-)

    First, OP needs to take a look at Settings > Battery to see what apps/processes are eating the most power. Could be some app using lots of juice in background (eg. many folks complain about Facebook chewing battery; for me, if I don't forget to kill TuneIn Radio, it will keep downloading the feed, even if not listening [so also eats into data plan]).

    As of the .2 software update, I've been noticing weird swings in my battery meter. Other threads on the board re: people complaining about battery life in .2. I'm in the some sort of bug in sw that's not showing battery level correctly camp (for me, occasional wild swing down, ~20-30% and usually right when put onto a charger, when not a lot of use, but of late, seems to be showing correctly regarding how much left).
