Does it affect Macbook's battery life?

I'm wondering if it affects the laptop battery because it is using bluetooth and as I know so far with bluetooth it consumes more battery than you usually do without it.

    As there seem to be two conflicting answers above, I felt I should add my opinon.

    It will have an effect on the laptop's battery life, as there will be an increase in bluetooth transmissions from the laptop. However this reduction in battery life will be negligible.

    Of course if you've always got bluetooth turned on, and are constantly using bluetooth accessories with your laptop, then there won't be any reduction of battery life, as the BT transmitter would have been quite active anyway.

    Hope that helps :)
