    Does anyone know how much relative power the Motorola RAZR phones (I
    use a V3) draw from their battery when enabled for Bluetooth
    hands-free operation?

    Since July 1, it has been illegal to use a handheld cell phone while
    driving and a handsfree device is required. I use a Motorola T505
    speakerphone device.

    Ever since I started to use this device, my RAZR runs down in about 2
    days (mostly standby time). I recently changed the battery so there
    is a new one being used.


    Best,

    Bob

    It uses even more power if it's searching for a Blue Tooth device and
    cant find one (like when you're not driving).

    I was under the impression that it stops searching when you turn off
    the Bluetooth source. If not, how do you turn off (the phone) when
    you leave the car?
