Battery Tweaks and Recommendations

I highly recommend you buy Titanium Pro to be able freeze apps that you do not need. Freezing means the app is not able to run in the backround or launch. You can easily reverse this process. Recommended over uninstalling.

How to freeze apps:

1. Make sure you have Pro. Open the app and Choose BACKUP/RESTORE
2. Scroll down to any app and click it. Choose Freeze. Done!
*to unfreeze, do the same thing and this time choose unfreeze

Apps to freeze to improve battery life (these apps keep running in the background and drain battery:

-Wifi-Sharing *tethering will still work fine
-Wifi-Sharing Manager
-Social Hub
(do not freeze Wifi app)

App to improve battery life:

I highly recommend 2X Battery, which is free from market. This made a noticeable difference to battery life for me.
In the app you can turn off the notification icon if wanted

Currently, I am getting about 16 hours of battery where I used to get 8 or so.
