    Seeing as how the screen seems to have the largest draw on battery life, I've been running the screen brightness at "0", with the native tools. I installed an app called Quick Settings, which decreases brightness by another 10-20%. May not work for some brighter situations, but if you want to have the screen "always on" or know you'll be going hard w/ Facebook, every little bit helps.

    my friend does this with his iphone. he puts the brightness to absolute zero, you can barely see the screen but it lasts like 3 days on a charge lol

    i do wish my batter lasted longer, but this sounds like giving up ease of view.
