STANDBY: Does the SD card drains your SPV E200 battery?

There is an interesting thread running over at MoDaCo which is worth to read. It's about the standby time of HTC's Voyager (aka Orange SPV E200, i-Mate Smartphone2) and I couldn't believe it when I read it first but it seems to be true:

The main battery drainer of the Smartphone isn't Bluetooth at all but it's the SD/MMC card you might use with your device. lutzh wrote:

86 % battery w/o card - 1 day, 3 hrs, 40 min left
85 % battery w MMC card - 14 hrs, 25 min left
85 % battery w SD card - 14 hrs, 24 min. left

All numbers taken from smartbatt plugin with an HTC Voyager with Bluetooth on!

I made the test myself last night and left the device switched on but removed the MMC card and while it usually left up to 3 bars on the next morning this morning it hadn't left a bar! 8O

So far I've recommended to install as much as possible applications on an external flash card to save storage space on the Smartphone itself but with the HTC Voyager it seems a better idea to install the apps on the device and not using a SD or MMC card to save battery and increase the standby time, which is much more important at all!

Hmmm... I'm a little bit clueless now and hope HTC gets this bug fixed soon!

Cheers ~ Arne
