    There are a few.

    PowerManager is a good one.
    Useful Switcher also helps turn off Bluetooth, GPS, 3G.
    Also turn your screen brightness way down.

    And try Battery Graph too.

    I am using my G1 in Vietnam so I know the APN code. I keep the DATA turned off by messing with the APN code. When I need DATA I just fix the code. Easy to do BUT If I do not use DATA., not watch Videos or do anything else with the phone other to just use the phone as JUST a phone. Calls & SMS message ONLY, then my battery will last for 2 days !

    I use Locale to manage my phone based on a few criteria

    For calendar events - I have the screen brightness turned down, the screen timeout to 15 seconds, the ringer on silent with vibrate, WiFi, BT, and GPS turned off.

    On battery power I have the screen brightness up, and the screen timeout at 2 minutes.

    Seems to get my battery from 6am to at least 8pm with one, maybe two phonecalls and some light usage.
