In mobile ad hoc networks, a mobile host holding data items frequently accessed by other hosts needs to transmit them many times and consumes more power than other hosts. In this paper, we propose replica allocation methods for not only improving data availability but also balancing the power consumption among mobile hosts. In these methods, each mobile host replicates data items taking into account their access frequencies, the numbers of their replicas, and the host's remaining battery power. We present simulation results to evaluate the performance of our proposed methods.
