    Hey all, just wanted to share this since it's extended my battery on the Tab 2 GREATLY when not in use.

    Pretty basic and most people probably know this, but:

    Go into settings>Wi-Fi, go to Advanced Settings on the top right, and set "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" to "Only when plugged in".

    Basically it just stops checking your email/etc every few minutes unless you're actually using the tab. I'm a pretty light user and this simple change made charging necessary only once every couple weeks, when it was every couple days before.

    Cheers!

    Another, obviously, is to turn it on only when wanted

    I will also add that changing certain settings that involve syncing and otherwise that require Wi-Fi can be kept to a minimal, so you can keep it on if you so choose.
