Routing in Wireless Ad-hoc networks is one of the main technical challenges due to the dynamic behavior of these networks [1]. A routing protocol is needed whenever a packet needs to be transmitted to a destination via number of nodes and numerous routing protocols have been proposed for such kind of ad hoc networks. Our Main objective in this paper is to develop Energy Efficient Power Aware Multipath Dynamic Source Routing based on DSR [2]. We analyze Minimum Battery Cost Routing (MBCR) to minimize the path battery cost so as to maximize the total remaining battery capacity. The cost function f in MBCR is defined such that the lower the remaining battery capacity c of a node i, the more reluctant the node is to receive and forward a packet. In this paper we proposed a new route discovery algorithm that considers the remaining energy for each node and uses a cost function to choose the best power saving route. And a new route maintenance algorithm that deals with the broken routes due to the nodal energy depletion and node mobility.
