Question An email option that doesn't kill the battery??

I recently started using email (gmail) on my TP2 and I've noticed that the battery drains so fast that it's dead before lunch (it use to last all day, using text instead of email).

Does anyone know of any creative ways to get emails (with reliable notifications) without killing the battery so fast?

Another vote for exchange push. (Exchange 2007 Server in my case).

Have Gmail forward incoming email to your phone as a text message (number@messaging.sprintpcs.com)
Use program like Magicall to perform a send/receive when a text message with "Subject: " in it arrives, then have it delete that text message.
Phone will trigger a new email notification once the email is received.

This is the most battery efficient way to achieve your goal. I use this in conjuction with push email (more than one email account obviously).
