    JiveTalk is going to consume more battery than any of the IM clients released by RIM, but it's still an awesome IM client. Tried it out for a month, and paid $30 as soon as my trial ran out for the full version.

    I do turn it off when I'm at home and have digsby up or something to conserve power.

    I love jivetalk! I need it for the storm though. I had it on my curve and def paid the 30.00 for it. Well worth it. Never consumed a lot of battery though...This digsby you mentioned. for blackberry?

    If battery life is important you can try IM+.

    It provides so called "im push" mode, in thу mode all incoming IMs are forward to you BlackBerry push mail and you can answer by mail also. So, you have not to keep the application running on the device at all - it saves battery vastly.
