    I'm new to Android, but have been learning. I have chosen to stay away from app killers and just tweak the heck out of as many settings as possible. The next OS update has a Force Stop option built-in for applications. Probably the most important thing I did for batery life was to initially use my X until it shut itself off. Then I recharged it overnight without disturbing it. Then I did that again, letting it shut itself off. Battery life improved noticeably. Experienced forum members please correct this if inaccurate. Good luck!

    Dullard gave some good advice. If you use the facebook app, I'd also advise that you update it if you haven't already done so. A recent update to the facebook app has been shown to have a problem draining batteries on Android devices. This was promptly fixed, so I suggest you check that out as well.
