My battery life was horrible when I first switched from my rotten apple to my little green android I did a little exploring and found some nice applications to extend battery life. The Tools: WiFi OnOff, GPSOnOff. BluetoothOnOff & Taskpanel We all know that GPS, BT, and Wifi will drain a phone no matter what brand. Toggle WiFi , GPS. and Bluetooth with the respective applications (free) when they are not in use. We also heard claims from apple about Iphone not multi tasking natively to save battery life. I am not sure why but a lot of apps load at startup like AK Notepad, PEEP and other seemingly load for no reason. Enter Taskpanel you can choose the apps you want to ignore at startup. For example ignore IM if you use Meebo, ignore mail if you use GMail. Let's say you tweet occasionally you can also auto kill applications after an allotted time. I can run peep and set auto shutdown after 5 min. Between TaskPanel and the toggle apps my battery life has been extended. You can also keep auto dim enabled (use the volume button to wake the screen up). Little tweaks like this pay off.
