Traveler on my iPhone was also crushing battery life. Not sure if it’s an option for Android, but changing from “push” to scheduled “pull” for mail made a huge difference.

Thanks for your reply! Yes, iPhones have a super easy “button” in their preferences to change the sync type… but not Android phones. After checking the documentation, it says they recommend to setup the sync to use “sms notifications” (Applications -> Notes Traveler -> [menu button] -> Settings -> Auto Sync -> enable SMS notifications and then set your sms email address in the SMS email address field).
I just did the change on my phone… I’ll see what happens over the weekend.

All reports indicate that while the 4G is really fast on Verizon, it eats battery.
Also Traveler lets you set sync preferences in the “Lotus Traveler” app. Open it, click the Menu button, and choose settings. I set mine to autoconnect during peak times (6am – 8pm M-F), and then every 15 minutes outside of that.

Widgets came with Lotus Traveler 8.5.3, so you will need to upgrade your server and client.

Hi Craig … thanks for the tip re: 4G … the “good news” (?) for me is that I’m in a 3G area … I have never seen that 4G icon light up so far!

Thanks for your comment … ok so now I know that I need to upgrade the server to 8.5.3… dang I thought that was included in 18.104.22.168!
