    Q: How can I improve my battery life?
    A: Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your phone.
    Here are a couple of things that you could consider - adjust the screen brightness, do not use live wallpapers, switch off networks when not in use (WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS), adjust update intervals for widgets (do you really need twitter/facebook notifications every half hour?). You could also consider downloading a battery monitoring app such as JuiceDefender.

    I will assume that is some kind of generic copypasta not intended to address the challenges on the p500/p509 platform. The real answer on the Optimus T is to root it and rip out the TMO/LG bloatware crap that runs at boot.

    I have also found the phone to respond well to underclocking 122-600 using an OnDemand or Interactive governor.

    Doing both of these can get drain down to 1-2%/hour overnight.

    Yes, it is generic copy/paste dialogue. But it also is for those who choose not to root. Removing bloatware and changing kernel options (such as underclocking and changing the governor) would not be an option for them. So the provided information will hopefully help those who are not comfortable with rooting.
