Bluetooth Battery Drain?

Is it just me, or does having my phone (iPhone4) connected through bluetooth to my car drain the battery on the phone faster? I just got my camaro friday and hooked up the bluetooth immediately and feel like I've had to recharge my phone more than usual in the past 3 days. Anyone else experience this?

Thanks,
Jim

That's why my phone is set to turn the bluetooth on as soon as I place it in my car dock and the bluetooth turns off when I pull it from the car dock.

Having Bluetooth or Wi-Fi enabled on most phones drains the battery quicker...especially Android

It certainly does......my phone with Bluetooth enabled will only last about 2-3 days till its dead.....if I turn it off completely.....it will last a whole week!
