    First adjust your brightness to make it viewable but not bright, remove running processes you dont need:

    https://spreadsheets.google.com/spr...SENVeXlqUm5vV0E&single=true&gid=0&output=html

    Install 3g enable/disable widget and turn off when you dont need it ie standby.

    https://market.android.com/details?...sMSwxLDEsImNvbS5mYXJwcm9jLmRhdGEuZW5hYmxlciJd

    Turn off wifi, gps and bluetooth.

    Unselect background data and autosync, note you need background data on to use the market.

    Dont use live wallpapers and delete unneeded widgets.

    My battery now lasts a full day and has a full battery icon.

    My 2 cents:

    Root your phone , install cputuner from market,and configure two profiles.

    screen on : 836 mhz
    screen off : 312 mhz

    That way when your phone's screen turns off , you downclock your cpu to 312 mhz .

    Dont use task killers : your phone wastes more battery re-opening killed tasks : instead , make sure everytime you close an app, its really closed . WIth stock task admin , you can make sure of it.

    Install juice defender . Apart from other things, it disables data connection (GPRS/3G/HSPA) when wifi is on.

    You need to configure cputuner , to set cpu speed when screen off to 312hmz min - 312hmz max.

    And when screen on,832 mhz min-max.

    Also,remeber to install juicedefender.

    Cheer's dont really use any batt apps as I just use data enable/disable widget, I find batt apps end up using more battery as it's in memory.

    I love juicedefender, because,amongst other things,disable radio data (GPRS/3G) when wifi is on.

    My batt goes on 2-3 days without tinkering much with the phone.

    Mine lasts easily a week with just texting, all data and other things turned off mainly due to being on pay and go and the fb app still sends data even when supposedly closed down lol

    Never use a task manager.
    This is a truth that task manager eats up lots of RAM as well as battery.
    Just checkout the all new v6 supercharger script, it is supercompatible with gingerbread.
    It will boost up ur phone as well as there will be improvement of ur phone battery life also.
    If u need my help u can post it here or I think member Ellis will solve it.
    He is most experienced member on this galaxy y section

    U will not get in market.
    here is the link to supercharger script download it
    http://www.4shared.com/office/usyvy39M/V6_SuperCharger_for_Android-up.html
    First of all download and install script manager from market.download and install busybox installer from market and open it and install busybox 1.18.2 from busybox installer.
    Then reboot your phone.
    Now open the script manager and locate the the script i attached in ur sd card. Then open it and run it as root.
    Done!!!!!and u can choose any option u like in that script.
    And never overcharge your battery as it can harm ur battery.
    Good luck

    I have seen the Samsung galaxy y gaming club and the owner is also trying to make it work.
    I will keep my eye on it and inform you when he finds a way to do that.
