JuiceDefender. Save power and extend battery life (a lot!) by controlling the device APN (data connection) and/or WiFi. You can schedule regular APN/WiFi activation to let background data sync occur and have APN/WiFi enabled while the screen is on. It also helps in minimizing distractions. Note: some features require UltimateJuice!

Pros & Cons:
- Save battery power on Android phones!
- Reduce distractions by allowing data syncing when phone is awake!
- Not really a con but be sure to disable when listening to streaming music apps, else it will cut your connection.
JuiceDefender Android App focuses on saving battery power on Android phones by managing your data connection settings known as APN. When the screen is asleep (black screen) JuiceDefender turns off your data connections; that being 3G or whatever connection speeds you may have as well as Wi-Fi. This prevents syncing of email, contacts and calendars. When you wake the phone these settings resume again. With their Pro version add-on known as UltimateJuice, you can fine tune the advanced settings at a granular level to set profiles when you would like JuiceDefender to be enabled.

JuiceDefender Advanced Mode
Android phones are notorious for eating battery power as you start consuming more apps. JuiceDefender can help ease some of this burden by stopping some of the data or Internet traffic which some apps depend on to run in the background; therefore these apps can resume their normal functions when the phone is awake.
Ease of Use:
The default settings are sufficient enough however you can fine tune them in the advanced settings menu.
If enabled JuiceDefender is intended for use every time your phone is in sleep mode.
