Do Live Wallpapers noticeably drain battery life on Android?

Wrote this on Friday. In the hindsight of a weekend, I think I want more evidence and conclusion. Do you have measurable proof that live wallpapers killed your phone or another phone? Any stories or links I should know about? I'll add them to the post. #android   #batterylife

"Live wallpapers could potentially kill your wallpaper" - I think you need a ^Wbattery at the end there. ;)
 
Anecdotally, I really don't notice much of a difference. I haven't run a battery of tests (get it?! Hah! *audience groan*) to support that in any way, but I can get through a day with either a static or live wallpaper without noticing too big of a battery hit. What eats my battery alive regardless is display-on time, seems to be no getting around that. You use, you lose?

Thank you, thank you, I'm here all week... :P
 
It's more of a memory issue for me......
