Default How do I reduce battery usage?

I have disabled Facebook home and am using the stock Android home screen. Ever since I got my brand new phone, the battery life has been atrocious. It won't last a single day of regular use. How do I keep the battery from draining so quickly?

Keep the screen brightness as low as you can use it. Keep the screen off as much as possible. Keep the phone sleeping as much as possible. Turn off all radios (data, wifi, GPS, Bluetooth) when you're not using them.

Then look at the battery statistics and see what's using most of your battery power and try not using that so much.
