First of all, what is that task killer we are talking about? Well, task killer is a an application which is designed in such a way that it kills all the running applications or to put it in simple or laymen terms, task killers are just like task managers in your windows. You can kill or stop an application as and when you need it. The only difference between task killer and task manager is, you can schedule the program or the application killing intervals in your android using the task killers but as you all know task manager is a manual process.

One of the reasons why your android smart phone drains its battery quickly is because of the applications which run in the background without your knowledge. Now, these task killing applications will help you to kill those applications which are running in the background without your knowledge. I am sure, you have a question now, ‘how does killing the background application help?’. Well, the major reason for battery to drain quickly is because of the applications running and also because of the speed of the processor. The more the applications run, the more is the speed of the processor and it turn it needs more power to run and hence, consumes lots of power from your battery. Now, i hope you have the answer. Killing the applications in the background helps the processor to run in the slower speed and it turn it consumes less power and hence, power consumed from the battery is less and this helps the phone’s battery to last longer.

Few smart phone manufacturing brands like Samsung, have task managers in them which can help you to kill the applications running in the background by clearing the ram. Again, here the process becomes manual and after you clear the ram ones, these applications eventually start up again till you kill them. So, having these task killing applications will help you to keep a check on the applications running in the background and also to kill them automatically in time interval.
