Just a quick poll for everyone, users and developers alike.

I ask this because I normally keep mine at the max level but recently ran into someone who keeps theirs very low, and am curious on what the general consensus is.

Thanks!

I keep it at 50% all the time.

You'd save battery life by not keeping it maxed out.

I always set it to "automatic". That can save quite some battery power.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I keep it at about 50% with auto-brightness turned off.

That's true, but I find it harder to read when I try it on min or even half

The lowest possible one to keep the battery life as long as possible - I hate recharging!

I leave auto-brightness on too, but notice very little change if it's on or off.

I avoid auto-brightness to save battery. I'm jailbroken, so I can adjust the brightness, even when I'm in an app, depending on what light I'm in.

Darn it! I just realized that I'm over 400 posts, and forgot to announce it when I reached 400!
