[Q] Blocking Adds

view story

http://forum.xda-developers.com – I read an article on the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17431109) that apps that have adds in, drain the battery faster than apps without adds in. Ive installed AdAway and the adds are gone from the apps, but does this mean the battery use will now drop because the adds aren't there, or will it remain just as high as the apps may still be getting the data for the apps, just not displaying the actual image for the add?
