    Bluetooth turned on will discharge your battery marginally quicker.

    Well leaving Bluetooth on will consume a little more battery but it's designed to draw a small amount I leave it on for tracking my keys and it's not that big of a hit

    But if you don't need it turn it off its simple using Control Center and most devices reconnect automatically when turned back on

    I keep bluetooth on 24/7 & haven't really experienced any significant draining. I get about 7hrs use & a day standby

    But if you don't need it turn it off its simple using Control Center and most devices reconnect automatically when turned back on
    I agree though…if you don't need it, turn it off.

    I've got my jawbone up24 and pebble connected via Bluetooth at all times and it doesn't drain the battery much more than with bt turned off. That said, if I don't need it, I do turn it off.

    Really. I'd read that the Pebble was a iPhone battery vampire. So, that's not true in your experience, eh? I really wanted to get a Pebble but stayed away because of the battery draining thing.

    Yes. Really and truly. It surprised me as well. I can make it all day without a charge. I always plug it in at night but I am usually only down to 20-45% by then so still juice left.

    It depends on where you're located. If you live in a city like New York or similar you can expect a super fast drain both from Wifi and Bluetooth, if you live in the rural Midwest, don't expect much of an effect.

    In a city, your wifi and bluetooth capable phone will almost never stop being stimulated (much of which is, unfortunately, from private retail companies tracking your location).
